So i had my swim instruction today. A colleague of mine is a swim instructor and i asked her to pick apart my stroke and tell me how to improve. We she sure did that. She said i was fast but not efficient. I have a whole load to work on but i get what she was saying and feel that i can do what she advised. I need to slow down and improve my technique. A lot.
In the mean time i need to swim my ass off next Sunday as i totally forgot to change my swim time. I guessed how fast i could swim. My pool has no swim clock and i didn't have my poolmate when i registered. So i said 7 minutes, but actually i swim it in 8. I wasn't that scared until i saw that i have been placed 26th in the line up out of 180!!! Holy crap i'm going to have folks swimming over me.
Its a pool swim and we do 4 lengths of each lane, 4 lanes. I think i will have folks over talking me at the turn points. So i'm not too pleased with myself for making this harder than it should be. Thankfully i will only have to endure 8 minutes of it and then i'll be on a bike where folks can over take me all they want in a pretty easy fashion.
I think i will be swimming quite a lot in the next week. eeek
