Super Swim

After more than 2 weeks without swimming, I wasn't sure what to expect today. I thought the swim would be though and slow. On the contrary, I was pleasantly surprised. Since I don't seem to find the time to go as often as before, I changed my sets to be a bit longer, hopefully that will come out to the same in the end.

So my new sets of 900m took me about 16 and 20 minutes. Very impressive! I had a cool-down of 270m of breast stroke in there as well. I'm very satisfied. The goal over the winter is to move to sets of 1500m so I can be ready next year if I want to move on to Olympic triathlon distance.

I feel really good right now. I don't think I ever got this nice of an endorphin buzz from swimming before.


  1. Congrats on getting back into swimming! It's so hard to get back in the grove--even after a small hiatus!

  2. Good for you! Sounds like you had a great workout!

  3. YAY!! Sounds like a great swim! I just joined a tri swim class to keep me motivated to continue swimming during the winter too.. :)

  4. Sounds like a great swim! Sometimes it just works out well!

  5. I'm envious! Every time I'm out of the pool for more than a week it seems my swimming takes a big step back. Sounds like you are definitely on your way to an oly next year!
