Day one...BEGIN!
Alarm went off at 0530 and I was out of bed and "eager" to get to the pool.  I talked with Kim yesterday and she and I are going to try to help each other train by being there for each other during our swims.  We may not do the same workouts but having a friend there, that is relying on you to be there, helps.  Boy does it help! 
I was poolside at 0600 and Kim was there too.  We had a quick chat then into the pool.
500 Warmup
10 x 100 on the 2 min
4 x 200  :20 RI
200 CD
Not a bad workout.  On the 100's I was hitting around 1:32-1:35 each set.  Not that great but not bad either considering it's day 1.
One the 200's I noticed Kim right on my feet so after #2, I had her go ahead of me.  Yeah....after a 100 she was WAY ahead of me and by the end of her 200, I was 20 yards back.  I was tanked the last 2 of the set but finished them anyway.  I'm happy with the workout today and I know that I was fully ready for the 8 mile GSL swim last year by starting a swim regiment that began at the end of February.  I'm starting 2 months earlier and taking it a lot more seriously this year.  I expect some PR's!!

2500 total.

  1. There's nothing better than having a friend to swim with. Either for moral support or pacing.
