Plans for 2018

Post by cottmiler on Tue Jan 16, 2018 12:30 am

I shall continue striving to perfect the swim stroke in the pool when I have the time in England. Building on my sea swimming over the last few weeks.

Here is a very interesting blog from Paul Newsome packed full of interesting items:

Hmmm, plan might be the wrong word BUT I would like to try to get to the start line for the Rottnest Channel Swim in 2019. I've sort of survived with the niggling shoulder since my DNS for Rotto 2015. I've had to be very careful with regards to intensity and/or volume, and still sometimes have a small setback by forgetting this, e.g. this Xmas New Year break from work (2 weeks) where I did a lot of swimming in the ocean, instead of my usual 4 mornings a week in the pool and Sat morning at the beach. Considering my longest sessions were ~4.5k in the pool (with breaks, recoveries, intervals), doing multiple 6k continuous swims and 3k swims in between was a dumb thing to do! Rolling Eyes

Anyway, we will see what happens. I only started keeping stats in 2014 but here's some numbers. I hoping I'll be able to get up to 100km for 2018.

Year  km        av km/week  av km/day av km/day (for 5 sessions/days per week)
2014  952.04  18.31           2.61         3.66
2015  290.74   5.59            0.80         1.12
2016  593.60  11.42            1.63         2.28
2017  859.06  16.52            2.35         3.30

I think you mean 1000 km for 2018.

That is quite a goal.

I could only watch the Cottesloe Mile swimmers come in on Saturday but here,s hoping for next year!

Have you been able to get much swimming in while in Perth cm?

Yes indeed. The right shoulder which had been out of action since 23Oct improved nicely by the middle of December and we only went to Claremont pool three times at first then went daily to Cottesloe and the river.

This is the most sea swimming I have ever done in one holiday and I feel there has been a real improvement in technique. This is combined with my better left arm action enforced by weeks of left arm only.

We leave tonight and hope to be back at the end of November. In mid Feb we fly to Sydney and will visit Palm Beach (Summer Bay) before hopping on a ship.
