I yelped as 2 hands squeezed my waist. I spun around and was met by his gleeful grey eyes and grin.

Was chatting with one of the lifeguards at the pool, who was also a competitive swimmer back in the Philippines. She suggested that I start a proper training programme for the swim meet instead of just aimlessly swimming laps. I already have my stamina and would need more targetted training now.

So that’s what’s been missing from the second halves of my sprints and finishes — when I start to struggle to hold on, and finish weakly as opposed to ‘attacking the wall’. I’ll need to work on my anaerobic endurance and raise my lactic threshold.

Can’t wait to hit the pool tomorrow to see how the new training sets work out.

7 more weeks.
