@mariner4life said in The rebuild of M4L and a new challenge:
Good swim! busted out a km in a smidge over 22 minutes, which while slow for most, is quick for me.
Then did 500m with the paddles on which took 13 mins, and i was burning like a mother fucker
two more hundreds to warm down, and it was a 1700m swim in a touch over 40 mins including a couple of rests in between sets.
Nice work, if I were you instead of doing 1,000m in 20 min perhaps I’d do 10 x 100 on 2:20 or 2:30. You won’t improve your speed swimming such long distances.
Even when training for our big lake swim, we never swam more than 800m in one go.
Our average 4km set was something like this
20 x 100 on 1:45
10 x 50 on 1.00
10 x 25 on 40
250 warm down
