Sunday, 12 hard kilometres on spent legs. I chose a new route, which made it interesting, and I started far from home, which made sure I did it all. Passing bus stops provoked thoughts of catching a ride, however.
Tuesday night - first tri-coached swim training. I am now a Total Immersion swimming student. I had a great time. I have home work to improve my swimming.
Today (Wed.) I relaxed with my kids and watched the linked video. I'm excited about Sunday's half marathon. Good advice from Judy - think about the training I have done, not the training I did a while ago.
Ideas to swim faster:
- reduce resistance
- swim sustainably (not velocity)
- how easily can I move through the water (not speed) - how can I make my desired pace feel easier?
- stroke length vs. stroke rate
- huge opportunity to increase efficiency above current level of three percent
Bottom line: Get better at stream-lining.
Endurance: both mental (a stroke thought for each stroke) and motor endurance
