Slight improvement for me ... 7:33 managed 2 intervals at this 

But i noticed my big gain was my easy 400s at start and end ... where they were close to 10:00 they are now close to 8:00

Hi WildWill,

Can I just check, is the most up to daye spreadsheet still at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/62128064/Save.xlsx and am I supposed to add the times myself? The document seems to be locked for editing when I try, sorry if I am being a dunce.

There are a couple of my posted times still not on there / wrong. Could you update with the following please?

Week 3: 7m 50sec
Week 6: Should be 7m 40sec (not letting that PB get lost!) 

Now my OW training is done for the year, should be able to play a little more

Have been making an huge effort to stretch out at the end of each stroke, as I push back with the other hand. It does feel like there is a dead spot at the end, but the coash insists it's more efficient vs windmilling.

So today's 400m was focused on extension and pushing. 7:31 vs PB of 7:29. Today felt alot easier, and I thought the whole 400m was swum 'slower'. 1st 100m still too fast, but slower than normal, so pacing is improving too.

BUT don't enter this yet. Depending on how the timing works at tomorrow's tri I may beat it!

Hangover swim, yuk!. Haven't done that for a while. I'm sure when I was training for Outlaw I was swimming so early the hangover hadn't kicked in.

Saturday's tri was a relay affair. #1 in my team did a 5min something which meant I had nothing but clear water when I swam. Was hoping for some speedy feet to hang on to. Unfortunately I seemed to tow a few people along, until they swam through me. BIFF BIFF. Great fun . Managed 7:33 wet time.

Friday's 7:31 it is then.

Sorry not last week but the week before. Week 6 is in as 6:14 but week 5 was a 6:14 as well. Now the triathlons are over its time to focus on getting sub 6 here!

07:50 for me yesterday, tried a second set but just didn't feel it, think i have run out of steam for this season. Last race on Sunday then i am done for this year...or at least until Fink starts Dec 10th

I'm basing next years training plan on either Joe Friel or possibly one of the new beginnertriathlete ones when they come out ....
