Crumby Swim Time Trial
I’ve just got back from a really disappointing pool session. And I’m not at all happy. Not happy at all. Grrrrrr!
It’s the last Monday of the month, so that means a 400m time trial at the NE31’s swim session. After last Friday’s performance in the pool (2:30 / 100m pace over 1,000m), which was taking things really easy, I had high hopes of breaking the eight-minute barrier tonight. But I’ve no idea what happened. The first two 50’s felt good, and were on target for hitting 8:05 for the 400. Then it all fell to pieces for about 150m, and I got lapped by the other two guys in the lane (one of whom swims at the same pace as me). I had a good 100m after that - drafting on the other two swimmers, and then a horrible final 50.
My stroke count was all over the place, my legs felt tired, and I was swimming like a Muppet (no, not Kermit).
Nothing more to say. I’m going to bed now.
