Time Trials

Alrighty, first milestone of the year - Time Trials. Basically, this is your benchmarking for how your progressing through the year. Both on the track, and in the pool his week we timed our mile time and our times for the 100m, 50m (kick only) and 400m freestyle.
Here's the outcome:

1 mile (1600m on the track): 7:47
100m free: 1:32
50m kick: 56s
400m free: 7:41
So these are the benchmarks I will work from going into my season. We will continue to do time trials throughout our pre-season and look to these times to pace and set goals durng race season.

I've also found a new site were I can log my workouts and mileage. It produces a really great stats report. I missed a swim (Tuesday), a ride (Friday) AND a strength workout this week, the stats are still good to have as a record.


  1. I'm worn out just reading about what you do. I'm so proud of you Sarah. I can only imagine how difficult your workouts are. Just keep the belief in yourself that you will accomplish what you want. All your supporters know you will succeed - some goals are just more difficult than others and take a little more time. You'll get there.
    Love you lots,

  2. I remember teaching you how to jog on the beach in Florida when you were 2 years old. I showed you how to swing your arms and hold your head up. You sure were cute. Your Mom loved to watch. And you sure were a determined little thing. When you wanted to do something, nothing much stopped you. Not much has changed. If you want it you will get it. Just keep your head up. And don't forget to swing your arms. We are still watching.
