EMSC one point zero goes soft?

There's been a distinct amount of rest in EMSC sessions recently and I can't decide whether he's gone soft or whether I'm getting faster.

As I walked on the poolside this evening I got a real scare when Queenie Reid enquired what I was thinking of entering the 1500 at the British Champs?

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
200 swim
133 swim, 66 kick
66 swim, 66 kick, 66 pull
133 swim, 66 pull
200 swim
12 x 133 @ 2:40
1-4 progressive
5-6 hold pace
7-10 progressive
11-12 hold pace
200 loosen
12 x 66 @ 1:20 *
266 swim down
3900 metres

Aiming to swim these at less than half the pace of the fastest 133 in the previous
