Not me, but probably faster than me.

Finally I took the kids to the pool today. At the moment they can swim better than me. But they’d better watch out I’ll soon be (edging) past them.

Having my GB-Tri-Suit for duathlons is a bit embarrassing when you can’t swim so today is the day I have been dreading for 3 or 4 years. I WILL finally learn to swim properly. I look back to the heady days of 1987ish when I staggered to that 20 length (500m) PB…ah that’s only 19.5 lengths away. Admittedly with the more difficult front crawl that I have to learn to do rather than backstroke where breathing is that little bit more easy!

I pretty much mastered the half length today even managing also to breath out 4 times underwater, a new record. Today’s “session” about 15 half lengths of ‘front crawl’ (as I call it) followed by a rest and return leg of a recovery backstroke.

I’ll sleep well tonight as my upper body will be shocked into realising it does actually need muscles there.

Sprint Triathlon Spring 2012 is the goal
