I swam this morning, again for 3/4 of a mile. For the first 1/4 mile I rested every 2 laps, and my heartrate seemed to be staying lower than before (130 – 140). So I thought I’d try the next 1/4 mile going for 6 laps (150 yards) at a time. I did that for the last 1/2 mile, with a longer rest in between each 1/4 mile. My heartrate, when I remembered to check it, seemed to be around 150. The total time was approximately the same as resting every 4 laps, so I must have been swimming slower. That’s okay right now; what’s important is that I could do it.
That’s it for today; I feel good. Tomorrow I run / jog (or “slog” as Michael Pate says)
