Well, I was happy thinking that I’m making reasonable progress in terms of training, but as I’ve mentioned, I don’t really have a frame of reference. Then I came across a brilliant website by a chap called Mark Robson http://swimmingthechannel2008.blogspot.com
There’s lots of quality info on there, and anyone interested in open water swimming is strongly advised to check it out! http://swimmingthechannel2008.blogspot.com
I was looking at some of the training sets that Mark has built up to, and they simply dwarf my efforts. Now, Mark is obviously an incredibly good swimmer whereas I class myself as an average swimmer with incredibly high persistence. However, it’s given me a good yardstick against which to up my own game. Cheers Mark for putting such a good site together.
Anyway, must dash, as I’ve got to leave work, feed kids, get them bathed and in bed and then hit the pool to get my weekly total up!!
