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)

This really worried me because I was pretty sure I hadn't succumbed to the lure of the metric mile, but there was a grain of self doubt gnawing away at the back of my brain as I plodded through the work out.
Thankfully I hadn't (although I did enter the 800!
This evening's sesh was a bit of a fail as I couldn't make the second set of 133's progressive and the 66's were not even close to the intended time (or at least after the first three as I faded pretty badly).
5 x 200 @ 10s rest
133 swim, 66 kick
66 swim, 66 kick, 66 pull
133 swim, 66 pull
12 x 133 @ 2:40
5-6 hold pace
11-12 hold pace
12 x 66 @ 1:20 *
266 swim down
Aiming to swim these at less than half the pace of the fastest 133 in the previous
