I made it out of bed for a morning swim again, after a rather treacherous walk on sheet ice. The pool was pretty quiet again. A bit of distance was the aim today, after 500m of warm up I managed to knock out 5 x 400m on about 8:00 (coming in on 7:05). I was quite pleased, consistent times that were about the same as my last (and not wonderful) sprint tri, about the training times I was putting in when I was nearing peak fitness in the summer.
I slacked off from evening training. I shall make up for it with 2000m in the morning as well as an evening swim.
