Today's morning session:

12.01.2018 - 3300m (Morning session, 18.5m pool)
1100m crawl with paddles (14:26, wearing short with pockets)
1100m crawl  (14:13, wearing slip trunk)
1100m crawl with paddles (14:07, wearing slip trunk)

Conclusion:
- 4 seconds per 100m faster with slip trunk in comparison to short with pockets.
- 1.5 seconds per 100m faster with paddles in comparison to without paddles.

13.01.2017 - 1500m (Evening Session, LCM, 1500m, by wearing slip trunk)
500m crawl with peddals (6:26, 1:17 avg pace)
500m crawl with peddals (6:23, 1:17 avg pace)
500m crawl with peddals (6:19, 1:16 avg pace)
Notes: I did some time trials by wearing slip trunk and using finis agility peddals. Since I was satisfied by the results, had no necessity to continue after 3x500m and cut off the session.

15.01.2018 - 3350m (Morning session, 18.5m pool, by wearing short with pockets)
45 minutes non stop crawl time trial by using finis agility hand peddals and wearing short with pockets: 3440m (avg pace: 1:19)
Notes: quite good for me.

14.02.2018
Today I did a 500m time trial before the session, it was amazing to see the 6:18 which refers to average 1:17 pace per 100m. 1st 200m was 2:35, 400 lap was 5:03. I started with a 80-85% effort and try to swam descendingly after the first 200m turn. Seeing that I can maintain the 1:17 pace along a 500m is very nice. I hope to sustain this pace over the distances 1500m. Keeping working!

This week's yield #1(3km test):

This week's yield #2(4km test):

3km (40:02) and 4km (53:38) by wearing shorts is not bad for a 40-44 age group amateur swimmer i think. If i swim around respectively 39 and 52 minutes in my time trials, that will be fantastic for me.

I dont have facebook account but you may follow my instagram (Marathon Swimming-Turkey).

I will keep sharing my milestones on the way to Slovenia...
