February 2018 Challenge

PreachSwansonPreachSwanson Member, Rooster Endurance Member, Rooster Endurance Officers
Swim challenge is up, swim 1,000 yards a day average or 28,000 for the month. I recommend starting with a few thousand in the bank on day 1 as every year there are a lot of people swimming huge numbers that last week!

    I just put I 3k for day 1. I recommend everyone to get out there and swim as much as you can for the first 5-10 days or else you will have a bad experience of this all in the last 5 or so days.

    I'm going to rest up until the last day, then put in a monster set.

    Good news. I've made it 3 straight days.

    Bad news. It took only 3 days to run into the masters coach and be shamed that I was starting my swim at 7:30am instead of showing up at the 5:45am workout. So, now I have a new goal to make at least one 5:45am workout each week.

    In the interest of conserving pool space so it's not too crowded for the rest of you, @rangamel is going to swim my yardage for me since she'll have so much extra.

    I got lucky, we have a Masters that has two night swims, 8pm, just so happened that the 1st was one of them. I'm at 3,800 for the start and going again. As for a 20K, that is insane to me right now wow......I'll take some of your distance please.

    My club hosted a USMS meet in January. I've never been a fast swimmer so I try to motivate myself by thinking of the long-term health benefits instead. Stuff like this gets me in the pool on days when I am struggling with motivation.

    Two World Records were set by 70-year-old Dan Kirkland of Lake Washington Masters at the BC Masters' Mile yesterday. Dan broke records set in 2001 by Olympian and International Hall of Fame inductee Graham Johnston. Dan's 800-meter split of 10:28.96 bettered the old record of 10:52.68 and his 1500-meter time of 19:52.89 beat Graham's 20:54.56. Congratulations Dan!

    I feel like I should start auctioning off some of my swim distance.

    So far this month I have done 26 053m which is 28491 yards. Who wants it?? :p =)

    @rangamel maybe you need a bigger challenge? Just because you’re going to probably end up with more mileage this month than the entire team combined

    You're still ahead of me! I'm at 1200m. And if I swim enough in the next 16 days to complete this challenge, I will be sad.

    Get on it Rankin, you can still make it. Some 2 & 3k day's will put you right back into the mix.

    I've started tapering for my 20k swim on Saturday so my distance has gone down a bit in the past week.
    But count so far is 61,044m or 200,275 feet.
