Some short distance (2km and 3km respectively) speed sessions at David Lloyds, and two back to back 6km sessions set the scene earlier in the week. Today I completed my longest swim to date: a 10km straight swim. I took this slow and steady, with the intention of finishing it feeling fresh enough to do much more. My time was just under four hours.
This has positive and negative points to consider:
Negatives (or rather, things I still have to bear in mind)
In just a few weeks time, this distance will have to become standard. At that point I will need to be doing much of my training outdoors.
For now, I will just have to make the most of the luxury of a warm indoor pool.
