I posted that I had a “breakthrough” on my last week’s totals post, and that happened yesterday (Sat 4/24/2010). I had only done one “100” in any of my previous workouts, but decided I was gonna do more. I ended up doing 7! Since that happened, I decided I was definitely ready to start the 0 to 1 mile program. I actually got this from Adam’s blog, and thought it was the ideal training to get me up to speed (after I got myself up to speed to do the program). They also have a Facebook group you can join.
So today was the start of “Week 1”! This workout consisted of:
4×100 – 12 breath rest
4×50 – 8 breath rest
4×25 – 4 breath rest
Now the distances aren’t bad, it’s the “rest” you get that is difficult.
The program calls for doing the “workout” 3 times a week. I will be swimming 5 to 6 times a week, so hopefully, my fitness will get me to the mile mark more quickly (or easily). I’ll keep you abreast(stroke).
