Really glad i did the 20x100 set in the morning because it showed gains in my swim fitness. I remember doing 12 x 100 on 1:30 longcourse early before the ubc tri and being barely able to do it. This time i did almost double the distance and felt comfortable holding 1:18-1:22 pace. Feel strong in the pool. Went to talk with derek schoof (UBC swim coach) after the first swim and he is going to have a look at my stroke tomorrow am. should get good feedback. Making the chase pack in races like nationals and kelowna is a major goal for this season....Hoping this swim focus pans out.
