No matter how fit I am, training hurts...
and all that stuff.
So, I went to the pool this morning and did my test. I warmed up for four hundred yards, took a breather, then I was off. The test itself went rather well. I thought I did a pretty good job of being consistent. There were a few spots where I got tired and slowed a bit, but I really wanted to give it my best effort. I only swallowed one mouthful of water too. Yup. That's a bonus :-)
It took me 17 minutes exactly to swim 10x100 yards with 10 seconds rest. That comes to 1:33 seconds per 100. This gives me an equivelent of 1:40 per 100 METERS. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. That's about 10 seconds slower than my peak at the end of last year. Again, my shoulders and arms felt fine. I think I really need to concentrate on my aerobic/anaerobic engine.
