Went along to the Uswim open water swimming training session again this evening. The coach Dave Quartermain was good enough to spend 15 minutes with me assessing my front crawl and giving me a few pointers to improve my stroke and efficiency which really helped!
Swam four circuits of the 500 metre bouyed route. Completing the mile in 45 minutes and the 2000 metres in 55 minutes. Really comfortable with front crawl now and felt like I could have swam on... Until I got out and felt light headed!
Also gave my new swimming wetsuit a go this evening... Very pleased! Accidentally bought it at Northern Diver last week... I only went in for air fills for the weekend diving!
