Hi Andy

The problem with my Tempo Trainer was just that I hadn't realised there was a protective film over the display. It's now working OK and I'm finding it interesting. I've downloaded Terry's helpful hints but basically still groping for a suitable starting range of tempos.

I have read a lot of negative comments about the quality of the new model. Can you still get the old blue model?

Richard I don't think so - I even looked on ebay the other day. I guess since they were only designed to last a couple of years then they've all been thrown away.

I'll certainly consider breaking mine open when the battery dies and resealing.

26 Feb 2016

100's warm up

pace tune up with strict stroke count 50's on 37.5s

25's full speed with set stroke pattern. tt0.65-0.75 beeps 22-26, times 15.4-17.5

I did some dolphin kick 25's and some relaxing lengths.

9 people in a narrow lane at some points so lots of patience needed too.

I've settled into the regime of the local masters club so feel less need to post each swim as for the time being, I'm not setting the sets I swim, although I do adapt some of the sets to suit my specific need.

I've changed from swimming 5-6 times a week to two masters session on Tuesday and Sunday and a free swim on Friday morning.

The downside of the master's sessions is there is a lot of 4 stroke swimming and very little number analysis.

The big upside is no lane traffic and an intensity level that is already improving my swim fitness.

The last session I swam 2.5K at an average speed of 1:35/100m in an hour. In a public session I normally manage only about 1500m, due to longer rests, enforced or otherwise.

10 weeks to European Championships, time for summer diet and increased focus on specifics.
