Keep doing your slow turns VT and come July you will get a nice surprize when you see your swim split , im too slow at turning too but CBA to learn flips - im only doing a handful of pool sprints - but then again it should help in training to keep the pace up

Not sure if 400m is on this month's program, but we did 2 x 400m time trials tonight as part of our main set.  My first was a disaster in that I was put at the front of the pack and I pushed way to hard to stay ahead.  It was never going to stay that way and I busted at about 300m swallowing half the pool and let them pass.

Second attempt was on our own and I was able to pace myself better.  Finished in 7:50, which was 13 seconds slower but was a much stronger swim in that I could have maintained that pace for a lot longer.

Good swimming VT'd. I didn't have time for 3000m yesterday, but managed to knock 1min 31 secs off my 1500m time. It's all slowly improving

I think we are on to a new month of time now .. what we need is the list fairy to transfer these on to the spreadsheet and then I can record the 400M for May

6.50 

Really happy with that, was doing sets of 16 - 1 easy/1 fast and this was on the 3rd rep I think when I thought to record it .. more than happy with that !

Well done on that Meldy.  I used to be worried by sets but this small competition and the winter swim league has pushed me that little bit harder than I would have bothered otherwise. 

The incentive just to post a newer and better time and to carry on beyond my usual 1500m dawdle is amazing.

Yes it is quite motivating !!  I even surprised myself today

Nice swimming Meldy

In the pool this morning feeling good. Sadly my times don't seem to be going anywhere. Recorded a 100m 1:55 and somehow managed to miscount the 400m towards the end of the session and did 500m; knocking off the time for the last 100 give 8:36. Ho hum
