2005-03-24 Swim

Swim. Jim was only @ class long enough to put up a workout and bolt. Only one other guy was there. I was bored senseless after about 5 minutes. But thankfully, I zoned out and the rest of the workout passed quickly. I finished the 2200 yards in 50 minutes or so. I forget the exact breakdown, but it was a mix of pull, swim, and pull w/ paddles. I only used the paddles for the first half of the workout. I think it was 200 warmup, 4x(50 kick, 100 pull w/paddles, 150 swim, 100 pull w/paddles, 50 kick), 200 cooldown.

I seem to have reached a plateau with my swimming, and I'm not sure what I need to do to break through to the next level. I know I need to get to the pool at least 3 times/week instead of only twice. But beyond that, I simply don't know. My distance-per-stroke is fine (more than fine, actually) but my overall speed is not good, and I keep having stomach problems. I think I'm going to make next month a "swim focus" month.
