Huge huge gains then - yes!
Think I swam 1:30-1:40 for that IM, 75mins the year after that, then an hour the year after that.
Bloody good memory, too.
I drove past the pool in Derby the other day (on the way to visit Huub) and recalled hobbling there on my crutches for pull buoy work.
57:44 is my pool PB, but that was a 4K TT (also hit my 1km, 1.5k, 1.9k and everything else in between that day!)
The thing with swimming, is I haven’t a Scooby!
I can see how to improve my cycling (do more hills, make easy rides really easy, follow a WattBike plan), but I’m not mad keen on cycling anyhow, so more than happy to stay at my level for now.
Running I know how to get better. Run more, run slower more, run faster less, do some hills. I’m targeting an improvement to my run; with a huge stretch target. Though that’ll end October.
Swimming??? I know running is detrimental to it, but after October, spending 40 minutes before work and a bit of time after work, supplemented with some gym/dry land stuff, is far more appealing than cycling.
Realistically, it’ll still only be six sessions per week.
