Great swim this morning, technique felt good and pull was strong. Hovering around 90seconds per long course 100m at 70-75% effort. Next step is to break the 90sec barrier.
Introduction of two Lido characters:
Red - a true animal in the pool. Just shorter than me, probably weighs seven or eight kilos more with a similar body fat %, a bad-ass tattoo and red speedo. As I stroke along at 90sec 100m's, this guy eases past me, and he just keeps swimming. I don't think he does a predetermined set, he just gets in the water and swims for 30-40mins.
TATA - another strong morning swimmer that breezed past me a few times today. No tattoo, but his swim cap is from the TATA ITU London tri.
I haven't introduced myself to either of these guys (remember I said meet and latch on to the people who can already do what you're striving for) but will keep you posted.
