Cameron Brown has been working me hard in the pool every morning and believe me, I wouldn't have been able to swim the distances we have been swimming had I been on my own. The past three days we have been swimming over five thousand meters! This is huge for me since it is such a struggle for me to get in two thousand meters. Hopefully it will give me what I need to stay in contact with the lead pack in three weeks time.
Set from this morning:
800 pull breathing 3,5,7,9 per 25
3x 800 holding 1:17 pace with 15 seconds recovery
10x 100 on 1:20 I thought this would be easy. I was only just making the set
4x 50 fly
200 cool down
Came out to 5,400m today. I talked a lot of smack in the car on the way to the pool. I held my own until 1,600 of the 3 x 800 m set and then Cameron pulled away. He is in some good form and is training well here in Austin. Lots of coca cola being consumed as well.
Some pics of Cameron's sweet rig.
