Hopefully not me on June 26th

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an update on my swimming advances.  That’s probably because there hasn’t been that much improvement, sad to say.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I am hitting the pool 4-5 times a week, and it seems that my distances are getting longer before I’m almost drowning, but I still have a long way to go.

I had a goal listed to SWIM 200M NON-STOP by April 1st.  Well, April 1st is in a couple days, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull it off.  I will be trying for sure Thurs morning.  I’ll probably pull it off, but it won’t be pretty.  I’ll be on my back probably more than on my front, but I will attempt to do 8 laps relatively non-stop assuming I don’t encounter any waddlers.

I did get a freestyle snorkel to help work on form without the worry of breathing, and it certainly has helped as I can go WAY further with the snorkel than without it.  I’m still training without the snorkel, for example; this morning I did a total of 7 laps total(350m), 3 laps of those were without the snorkel.

Bottomline, I’m going to keep plugging at it until the last minute of my first triathlon.  I have until June 11th to change from a triathlon to a duathlon. 🙂
