Wk2 – Total Immersion Swim Session 1

I got into the pool at 1730 sharp tonight. Wednesday night, I should have remembered that the Glasgow Swim Team is in on Wednesday nights, using three of the six lanes. The other three lanes are set up for lane swimming.

It was way busy!! 5-6 people in each lane. Arg.

I got in the medium lane to do my first set of drills:

The drills were good and I think I’ll get used to them. I’ll check on you tube to make sure I’ve got them right.

I managed to get the hang of my Speedo Aquacoach watch. But it’s a bit rubbish that it doesn’t time the drills. I’ll try it timing the drills next time I think, see if I can get it to work for them.
