Congratulations!

Ha ha I see you still have your explosive rear endpush, even with the straight arm over the top style.
Sort of a stylemark of your stroke I assume.Gives a little hitch at the start of recovery.
I think that recovery has smoothed out your transition to catch a bit.
I have been asleep for about a year. There is more than that stupid swimming. Picking up where I left off and repeating myself quite bit in the writing I see haha. Have to loose some weight again.

17.08.2018 , Morning Session, 6:30-7:30, 4000m
Set1: 1500m free with paddles (20:48, pace:1:23)
Set2: 1500m hand drag drill (23:12, pace:1:33)
Set3: 10x50m free 90% (7:28 recoveries included)
Set4: 500m free easy (7:52, pace:1:35)

Notes: Today I started to go to a new pool, this pool belongs to Turkish famous club Galatasaray. The trainers are ex national team or olympic swimmers. It is nice to swim in such a motivating environment. A view from the pool: https://www.instagram.com/p/BmkkXMSnxCj

Due to the races I couldnt have trained well in the last couple of weeks, my pace has become weird, I used to swim the Se1 1500m free 19:15, try my best to get into form until Slovenia.

It would be great to be there swimming upstream in the Bhosphorous.

I don't know how clean the water is though.

Yesterday, 02.09.2018, my squad and I swam in Marmara Sea. Marmara sea is quite saltless when compared with Mediterranean and Aegean seas. Others swam 2700 and 1500m courses but I did a time trial of 5500m in order to preapre for the 5k-Slovenia. I swam 1 hour 11 minutes 10 seconds (pace 1:17), reckon that this is not bad for EU masters standards. This was my last long distance workout before the race, 6days left, I am gonna reduce distances till the race. (see Rushall's peaking article: https://coachsci.sdsu.edu/swim/bullets/45d%20PEAKING.pdf)

Here are some footages of my squad, slide to view all photos:

Very sorry to hear that!!
Just looked through the 50m freestyle results: attendance numbers seem quite low.

Today morning we swam with Michael Miller from Australia in Sarayburnu (Bosphorus). He is 61 years old, I had never heard about him. Today he swam with my 1:16 pace but it was so easy for him, amost recovery pace for him. I wondered and searched him on the internet, and found out that he is actually a good OW swimmer in Australia.

His info that I found out:

Father, lawyer and keen OW swimmer after 15 years of cycling & triathlons. Rottnest soloist Feb16, 5th male.

https://www.instagram.com/millermichael5732/

It was nice and a good chance to meet and swim side by side with such a great swimmer!

PS: I also informed him about our forum, told him that there are lots of Aussie swimmers in our forum who might have already known him Very Happy I wonder Cotty may know him ?

I know him NC. He lives in Queensland and I am in Western Australia (Perth) but we met on a SwimTrek holiday in Greece in 2015. We did the Greek Cyclades trip. Yes, he's a very good swimmer! We kept in contact and we assisted with his Rottnest solo in 2016, with paddlers, boat, and support crew (6 of us from Perth were on the swimtrek week). 2 of us went over to Rottnest on the ferry with gear for him at the finish and only just got there in time! He was 7th solo across the line in 5:12 for the 20km swim. He also did a team of 4 this Feb 2018 in 4:46 and won their 200+ years mixed category.
