11/12/09: swimming

Swimming was a disaster today. We did timed swims, and I was not up to it. We did timed 100 yard swims in heats, followed by 50 yards. I did a terrible job of pacing myself on the 100 and I just didn't have the stamina to finish. I paced myself much better on the 50, but just lacked the energy to sprint to the finish. My time ended up being 47 sec for 50 yards. I wish this wasn't the week I was sick. On Tuesday, the class did free swim for 45 minutes to see how much distance they could cover. My lane did 2000 yards. That's not so far off from my personal max of 1700 yards. Hopefully we'll do both these exercises again because they're great motivators for getting faster.
