MTB Diva. I hate back stroke with a vengeance. We've been doing it at the club sessions and I am THE WORST. Completely trashed by the end of 25m. If I'm asked to swim 50m I'll need fins. Honestly.
Last week we all had our stroke recorded and now I've seen it on DVD. We were given 12 questions and asked to compare it to Mr Smooth. The idea is to identify the specific areas for improvement. I am going to need an awful lot more paper to be able to complete my answers.
As for moving up a lane, my chances of that have just reduced. Although there are one or two newbies with each new season, some have stepped straight into lane 2. I will be residing in lane 4 for a bit longer yet it seems.
Lyrics: I think so. Frosty start to the day, but by the time I was home again it was the worst of all types: about 3 degrees and raining. Decided to go for a swim. Clearly I've not been doing enough. The past couple of Sundays felt challenging, and today's "extra" session was not exactly relaxed. You know when your running is in the groove when you set off with the right pace and it just flows. Well, good swimming is like that, but even more so. My stroke and pace is going to need a shed load of work to get anywhere near that. 80 lengths done, and I was tiring at the end. No point in pushing with bad form.
Wabo: you are running more than me. You beat me at the weekend.
Emzap: congrats on hubby's birthday, more so on your ability to organise a surprise gathering of the clan.
Completely knackered. Too many miles driven. No exercise completed. No enthusiasm either. I've just emailed Outlaw tri to withdraw (clash with holiday dates confirmed)
Good news? I'm not injured, just moping about feeling older. At least I enjoy the bike, and have decent CV from that, and the swimming's a good thrash. I just can't see the point in the running at the moment.
