My Sixth and final swim session was last week. We celebrated with beer and cannonballs…..NOT!
We started with our abbreviated warmup, (25 right side, 25 left side, 50 backside (kick from the hip). Kickboard right stroke, kickboard left stroke, a few other drills and then as a final test/shove, I did a 600. I didn’t die. But by the end I wanted to. I guess I completed it in about 17 minutes (can’t remember the seconds). And with my performance, if I were to do the Alexandria Triathlon, my swim time could be around 15 minutes.
So what’s next? My new plan is to take a spin class on Tuesday mornings and continue swimming on Thursday mornings. I really need to increase my mileage, as I have a late April half marathon. But also want to prepare my body for multisport…So in March I will participating in Caitlin’s IRONMAN MARCH. You can read the details in her post from last year.
Are you training for a race already? Are you as ready for spring as I am?
