Pool was rammed this morning - 7 or 8 in each lane.

As my session planned for today was a 900m slog I was stressed about getting in peoples way. As it was, held my own and only had to pause twice to let someone past. Result was a 16:46 PB for 900m so happy with that

Swimming had somehow disappeared from my life. I am now working away one night a week, and I can’t bring my bike or kayak. I don’t run any more so swimming was the obvious choice. So far the pool is quiet at 6:30pm when I’ve been going. Really enjoying the swimming and it feels natural. I’ve not tried my crawl yet, I don’t want to drown myself straight away. I’ll give crawl a bash next week. I might even venture into the lane session which ends at 6:30.

I wasn't sure what the best thread for this question was. For those who use a Garmin watch to record pool training, do you record pull sets as a drill or as lap swimming? I have been recording them as drills but am thinking about just recording them as regular laps so I can see my stroke rate. (Not that I've been doing much pool swimming recently. There's limited re-opening of pools here next week so I'm just planning my schedule)

Got something to say?
