The Embarassment - first timer swim training
Last night was my first swim training session for my first ever sprint tri in May next year,
Picture the scene, rather chubby 30summut year old who's not swam lengths in..... lets got for 17years. and who weighs in at 209lb on a 5'9"frame.
it took me 22minutes to do 600m in twelve 50m sets - I'm used to watching my daughter (a 12yr old regional swimmer) knocking out 400s in about five and a half minutes!!! and thinking how hard could it be? - turns out VERY.
Glad I've got nearly six months to train my first ever Sprint tri!!!
I can knock out a 47min 20k on a bike followed bya 25min 5k (one rebuilt knee so I'm not the quickest of runners) - so its only the swimming bit which is concerning me.
My first goal for next year is simple: "finish"..... then improve next time out!
