My name is pete and i live in the Scottish hills and i can't swim. I checked my times against last years races and most people are twice as fast as me.

I am going to concentrate on swimming from the autumn onwards. I am not going to be last out of the pool next year.

Went for run this morning and went arse over elbow over Wilson the Mighty Iron dog  Wilson is fine as he's a brick but I have severely knackered my calf that was just recovering from a pull last week can nearly put weight on it now I think I am going to have plenty of time to swim and do core as it looks like runnings off the menu

Yes, poor Wilson

I'm going to learn to do front crawl. With the breathing and everything. The swim is my weakest part of a tri.

I am also going to do more than one brick session before my next tri.

I stuffed a bit more in mine. 
I'm trying something new in the pool and actually had the strange and very new feeling of moving through the water.... hold the phone folks... This could be progress *touches wood*

It looks like I've been overgliding, so I am working on that. I just don't have the upper body strength for a long glide.... it becomes a slow sink

Makes sense .... whatever goes on underwater, make sure its propelling you forward  

I put an hours worth in my sock today .. that'll have to do !

my sock has a large hole in it too RBM - nothing to do but to suck it up and learn to love the gym.

30/07/2013 at 19:48

Swam a d did core work in gym closing up that pesky hole

regarding overgliding iaw total immersion i used to try and stretch right out when i got 1 to 1 coaching i was told not to do thst as it was effectivly introducing a non proppeling dead spot also my stroke rate was to slow i gave sorted these and am deffo moving quicker still brick like but a quicker brick

That dog is built like a rock

My sock is on and off and all over the place, 100 mile bike on Sunday, bailed the lake swim at 1K last night, really good track session tonight, trying to talk myself in to a long run early am tomorrow. Let's see how shitty the sock is then. Agreed on the stroke rate/gliding thing, speeded up enormously from almost backwards to faster than a standstill, which is where I am currently plateaued.
