Swim on Saturday was written to be an OW swim. The temps and weather are just not there for me yet so I opted to do this simulated OW swim in the pool.
Written Session - 1 hour endurance swim with minimal to no rest at a perceived 1-2 effort
You can never swim at the Y without something crazy/strange happening. If it were not for the human torpedo I shared my lane with I think I would have swam without any stops. Mr. Torpedo stopped me TWICE just to say that he was sorry for kicking up the water in our shared lane. How a lanky, skinny guy can create so many waves puzzles me...still good practice since OWS can have some choppy challenges in itself.
Session results: 3100 meters with an easy effort. (stop time was under 2 min)
I was super surprised at how comfortable this swim felt. All of my workout have sets of (50’s, 100’s, 200’s etc.) that the thought of swimming non-stop was …well…. much easier than I imagined at this point in the game.
After my run on Sunday I closed out week #15. The time is flying by!!!!
