Back in the swim groove. Henry and staff continue to try and drown me but I ain't having none of it!
My first lesson back after a month off was brutal; huffing and puffing.
Last night though I felt surprisingly good! Did a quick warm up 100, then 8x25 kick drills, 16x25 arm drills, 2x100 on 3 minute cycles, 4x50 on 1m30s cycles, then 6x25 all-out sprints on 1 minute cycles, and cooled down with a 50 walk and a couple backstrokes.
Managed to not drown and actually felt OK on the 100s; not GOOD or anything but I could do two on 3 minute cycles and I'm not dead yet so I think it's working?
The goal is to be able to do 1000, aka 40 x25 without stopping...seems EVENTUALLY doable, but still bloody far away.
Meanwhile Fat Australian Dad in the pool just non-stop laps starting before my lesson, all the way through it, and still going when I'm done an hour later. I mean I get that he's buoyant and all, but damn that dude has SOME kind of fitness going on if he can just knock out, what 2k non-stop? With a HUGE gut?!
Life is no fair, kids.

Well, you could grow a gut - Fish is giving lessons - and see if it helps your buoyancy.

    I'm not Fish so I can't add all that up but it seems like a lot lot lot of swimming - good man! Oh and the fat dad - it's all technique mate - perfect swim stroke and you can go on for days...... rest of us not so much!

      Fish gut FTW! Buoyancy baby!
      Rainman says 1250 + walk + 2 backstrokes?
      1000 is very different depending on the length of the, um, lengths and whether you are doing touch or flip turns.

            I dream of being a good swimmer. Until then I'll watch you try and kill yourself in various forms of athletitc torture.

              Why would anyone want to drown you? That seems unnecessary, there are more efficient methods...
