I am now looking towards a swim in September. This one is just a swim, so swimming it just for me. The goal is to take my 3km time under the hour. Which means looking at my fitness and taking out the pauses in my stroke.
This also means dealing with the ongoing niggle in my left knee a slight tear in my acl. which is swelling up when I do almost any exercise. Weight loss (a while host of benefits especially my knee).
Current bench mark is 36.50 for 1.9km, 1.55 for 100m so here goes starting slowly and building, yesterday was an easy 1km in the pool, tomorrow is 1.5km and everyday are the balance and single leg squat exercises that will promote the recovery in my knee!!
Plus the number i have been avoiding 72.4kg which required digging the scales out from the back of the bathroom cupboard. the goal would be a 10kg loss but a bit more energy and ease of movement would be just as good!
