A quick cheeky midday weekend swim.
I missed yesterday's morning swim due to work commitments so was feeling a bit restless today which meant nipping out for a power hour.
I had a single focus today - getting used to 1:30 100m pace.
8x50m under 45s off 1:00 16SPL
These went surprisingly well, I had to have some longer rests because of lane traffic but it was fairly consistent at 42s and approx 20s rest.
8x100 1:30 pace
test two different TT settings one at 16SPL and one at 18SPL.
18SPL felt much more comfortable on oxygen demands so I swam
6x100 tt0.72 full lope. 31 beeps per length (as per 1:40 warm ups this week)
I swam them all 4-5 beeps ahead of target between 1:26 and 1:27
4x25 at one tt setting below my pb 0.63X27 beep target
4x25 at one stroke below my pb 0.66x26 beep target
a few lengths of 13SPL relaxed warm down.
the second felt easier but I was just off a clean turn within 26 beeps but I'll work on that next week for a 34.3 50m time.
I felt strong today after a rest day yesterday. Great swim
