Long distance swimmer?

Well I went for the gusto today, and made the mark with relative ease. I decided it was time to try 10 repeat laps non-stop which makes for 500 meters. Considering how pathetic I felt only a month ago, I think this is a pretty significant milestone in my swim training. Especially considering this was […]

Road to Precision part XXIII

With the end of the season approaching rapidly, I tune my target load some more by adjusting the bullet seating depth.

 

New PB in the pool

These are probably going to be posted every week, because the progress feels amazing to me. I did 300 meters non-stop in the pool this morning and I probably could have done more. My comfort level is starting to climb rapidly and I can even continue on with my stroke and cadence if I mess […]

Today I […]

Getting comfortable in the water

I can tell that I am starting to get more comfortable in the water now. I am not focusing so much on the breathing and keeping my head above water. Nor am I worried about the little bit of water that may get in my mouth from breath to breath.

I spent a full 45 […]
