For the swim I did in Halifax I wore my new GPS watch, so I tracked all the details of the swim – speed, stroke rate etc. This is the first chance I’ve had to download it all and perhaps more importantly, look at the map of the swim.
The swim itself wasn’t very interesting – just up and back, but the other stats are interesting. At the moment I’m just breaking the watch in, so I’m not using it to it’s full capacity as a training tool just yet. And for this swim I swam with a group, so it wasn’t a hard training swim, more of a social morning in a lake. But it’s all interesting nonetheless.
