Today in swim class we did a 400 meter warmup followed by a 1500 meter time trial. Basically 60 lengths of the pool or touch the side of the wall 30 times. The coach was trying to break it down for us. I have a seriously hard time remembering my counts and have to consciously make up a story around each number that I’m swimming. I asked the person next to me….”We have to swim 60 lengths of the pool NON STOP??”
Anyways, by the end of the swim I was feeling pretty good. I’m a pretty slow swimmer and I’m trying to correct my stroke right now. After I get used to it, I will start to swim faster. My 1500 meter time trial took 0:38:34. I have to record this, so next time I do it I can compare if I improved or not.
