11.10.2017 - 07:00-07:30 - SCM 2100m

Set1: 800m crawl with paddles (10:32, pace:1:19) 

Set2: 800m crawl doggy paddle drill (11:42,  pace:1:28) 

Set3: 10x50m crawl R:5" - 400 race pace (recoveries included total time: 7:01)

Note: No break and no fade after being the "FAKE/PHONEY CHAMPION" of the Turkish Open Water Masters Championship (Aquamasters Arena Cup). I am still a very poor awimmer, have a long way to go...
Today 2017-2018 season has begun for me, I started with lower distance than usual, gradually will increase the volume.

19.10.2017 - Morning Session - 06:30-07:30 - SCM 1500m (Wearing short with pockets)
I didnt want to swim at all, wanted to go to Starbucks for a filter coffee, chocolate with hazelnuts and a cigar after that. And I cut off the training went to Starbucks and did all!


20.10.2017 - Morning Session - 06:30-07:30 - SCM 4000m (Wearing short with pockets)
100m easy
Set1: 1500m crawl with paddles (20:28, pace:1:22)
100m easy
Set2: 1500m crawl doggy paddle drill (22:59, pace:1:32)
100m easy
Set3: 10x50m crawl R:5" - 400 race pace (recoveries included total time: 7:14)

Notes: I was feeling better than yeterday, 1:22 pace was not satisfying when compared with Tuesday's session's pace (1:18), but I was feeling comfortable during the whole workout. I m going to use shorts for a couple of weeks then looking forward to see what will happen when I take off shorts and wear my race suit Smile)
