So today is Tuesday – my first Tuesday to swim in the morning. It is also the day I will work on my 100 meter repeats in the pool. The goal for now is to complete 6×100 on a 2:10 send off. As I explained to my runner friend who is not a triathlete, a 2:10 send off is swimming and recovering in 2:10 before heading back out for the next 100. Ideally the entire set should be completed in a total of 13 minutes. After a good warm up and confidence that my slightly sprained left wrist didn’t hurt to swim, I tackled the set. The first three I was able to complete in 2:10, the last three I did in 2:15, so my total time for the set was 13:15. If I can add one more within 2:10 each week, I will be happy with my progress. Then once I get the 2:10 down well I will be working up to 2:00… What was the phrase? “You have to start believing you can do it.” Just wish I had ruby slippers to help me.
