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)

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):
https://www.instagram.com/p/BfdWETRB8pc/

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...

Hi Guys,
On the 19th-20th of May we had a 5000, 1650m and 4x600m relay(with my students) open water races in Marmaris.
I hit
- 5000m 1:06:10 (1:18.5/100m pace)
- 1650m 21:44
- 600m 7:30

It is quite good for me on my way to Slovenia FINA Masters EU Championships, 66 minutes is not bad for masters for 5K.
Also still some improvement is going on and can swim my PBs in my workouts nowadays.

Here are some of race photos:

Hi NC,
Thanks for posting photos and inspiring results.

Have you got a decent pool yet to practise in?

The Turkish has us baffled, for example what does "aarevyan Tebrikler Emrah super derecelin" mean. I expect it's a compliment.

How are your work plans going?

Hi Cotty,

In the week days I am going to the Federation's pool which is 25m. On Sundays and Mondays I am training in 18.5m hotel pool because the Federation's pool is closed. On Saturdays I am training my masters squad (15-20 guys).

My own sessions are going well, I am also sharing some of my daily sessions (in English) on my instagram page, you can follow my community from: https://www.instagram.com/maratonyuzme/

I am doing 5-6 sessions a week with a total amount around 20km. 2 months ago I resigned from Municipalities of Istanbul, changed my job, working as a Product Manager in a global company dealing with the non governmental organization management, humanitarian and card payment sectors. I am frequently travelling to Africa and South America. I swim there where I can find any pool Smile I am intending to perform the 1:15 pace over the distances 3K in a year (my pace is currently 1:17-1:18), a reasonable goal I think.

By the way, my wife is pregrant for 2 months, the gender is not certain now, but no matter what it is if everything goes as expected, a future champion may be born in January 2019 Very Happy
