Friday nights are traditionally "swim date" nights for D and I. This week, unfortunately, my date is in Toronto, so after work I made my way to the pool for a solo swim.
I am feeling REALLY good in the water. I feel like I am swimming consistently faster at a lower effort. I have finally learned, and become comfortable, kicking while I swim. I used to have pretty quiet legs and when I did try to kick it felt awkward and uncoordinated. I also used to tire much more quickly if I kicked, but somewhere over the past while that has changed.
I am not sure if my times are significantly lower, I am not great at timing myself, but I am definitely swimming stronger with less effort.
Looking forward to a low key weekend with myself :-) I will definitely get a bike and a run in, but am considering doing a Brick Sunday and taking it easy Saturday doing yoga and or weights.
Also looking forward to following the Calgary folks who are racing IM Florida- race hard! I wish it was me :-)
Training for the day: Swim 2500m (300 kick) 56min
