swimlog: killing winter hardlyFebruary 13, 2009 at 5:17 pm | Posted in training log, Uncategorized | 3 Comments
in efforts to cure these winter blues, i’ve started swimming to play in the pool. besides conditioning, the five year countdown to my first triathlon is well within a year and…uhm… i need to get my feet wet, doesn’t matter if i don’t know how to swim. my goal: 21 laps by march 2nd soo…
thursday 7:14 am (4 laps) – mostly “drink-pool-water-freestyle” and a likkle “flailing-arm-sidestrokes”. my heart was pumping hard enough for four people. nonetheless, felt good. i ended off with a new style of swim that is a cross between the doggy paddle and a bobbing apple. oh, figured out how to tread water.
monday 7 am (5 laps) – less frightening. smoother. had another lap in me. feeling good.
