Consett Masters New Age Men or Wimps?

So despite it being Mother's day I still made it to the Sunday Session at Consett, which is more than can be said for the rest of the crew. Only Keith and I turned out for a rather nippy little set which meant we had a lane each (no one to draft off).

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
100 kick
3 x 33's @ 40s
