Today I made the step of setting up an appointment with a swim coach for Monday. We’ll discuss where I am and where I want to be. It’s amazing how, when you put yourself out there, so many people step up with advice and encouragement.
Today’s swim workout was great – 500 meters, all breast stroke, with only occasional short rests between laps. I have yet to time myself for a swim, but I need to do it soon to establish a baseline from which to gauge my inevitable improvement. (I realize breast stroke is not going to be what I use in a race, but I want to keep building my confidence in the water without establishing bad technique on a race stroke during this interim period before I start lessons.)
Also today: an hour in the weight room, focusing on chest/biceps.
