2000 yards. I can’t do this anymore. I cannot keep showing up and knowingly swim slow. It’s not yielding any results, and I’m dreading the solo swim efforts more and more. If I sign up for a long race, I’ll have to swim better than this. Being able to give away time in the water only to try and catch people on land is not going to be my strategy anymore. Athletically I have nothing holding me back from being a good swimmer. It’s time. No, it’s overdue.
I kept an eye on my fellow swimmers today – I really did better than last week at my 40 touches to the other side. I know I need to concentrate more on side rotation and some kicking. I have 7 months to get better. Or 3 months to get better and 4 to sharpen the effort. Let today’s attempt be the beginning.
