The continuing quest of Binge Swimmer to take swimming seriously, (but of course not too seriously) Having failed miserably in 2012 and crashed and burned in 2013, my aim for 2014 is unsurprisingly; To swim the equivalent of a mile a day, (that's a little under 590,000 metres for the metrically challenged amongst you)

Consett Masters New Age Men or Wimps?
As I set off as a "Billy no mates" I consoled myself with the thought that I obviously swam with a bunch of thoughtful, considerate "new age" men who clearly chose to pamper their other half to ensure they had a restful and enjoyable Mother's day, and were prepared to selflessly sacrifice their own swim time.
Hmmm doesn't square with my impressions of Clarkie, Sparkie, Cloughie and the rest..... (I'm sure they are all keen to sacrifice their swim time but somehow I'm not sure that the pampering of their better halves is ever the reason!)
The aim of the main set here was to swim the first two repeats steady and then pick the pace up for the next repeat, then use that faster repeat time to give you the pace for the next two repeats then pick the pace up some more and so on.....
EMSC 1.0 even added the 33's at the end without writing them on the white board just to prolong the agony. (how sneaky is that)
300 steady @ 5.15
3 x 100 choice @ 2 mins
200 Pull @ 3.30
3 x 33's @ 40s
2 x 200 @ 3.30 (3.12, 3.12)
1 x 200 @ 3.30 (2.56)
2 x 133 @ 2.30 (1.56, 1.56)
1 x 133 @ 2.30 (1.53)
2 x 66 @ 1.30 (54, 55)
1 x 66 @ 1.30 (53)
2 x 33 @ 60 (24, 25)
1 x 33 @ 60 (23)
