I returned to swimming 11 weeks ago after a 6 month lay-off – last night I felt good for the entire hour and at all different paces.
Main set was 2 x [400m-300m-200m-100m] Steady on 15 seconds rest.
I manged to hold 1:30-1:32/100m for all sets with no reduction in speed or increase in effort at the end.
I think it’s now time to add something new to the swimming training… One easy long set and bring back the big kick sets.
Running also is on need of some attention – I was just holding form for the year to date but now I can see it’s slipping. Yesterday’s run was far too slow for the effort it took.
I’ll plan a two week “Run Every Day” session in early April to address this.
