Getting Quicker

Finally the training seems to be making a difference.

Not only am I trying to get as much swimming in as possible – especially in open water, but I’m also going to gym regularly to work my upper body strength. I’m also always thinking about technique and how I can improve that to make a difference.

Well this morning they all combined to allow me to swim my quickest pool mile yet.

I normally take just over 1 minute to do each 50m lap (ie two lengths of the 25m pool). Therefore, as I need to do 32 laps to complete a mile my mile time is usually around 33-34 minutes. This morning I did it in 30 mins and 45 seconds. Not only that, but I wasn’t pushing too hard either.

Obviously I won’t keep that pace up for Windermere – but it’s good to know that I’m making improvements.
