    2 km at Huskisson has cemented in my head that these extra kms have made me a better swimmer. I got out of the water in 30:44 after a shoking start where i couldnt get into a rythem due to the smashing and bashing around. It was damn hard to navigate and almost as hard to stay on someones feet due to the fogginess of the goggles.

    wetsuit swim and perfect sea conditions.

    here is proof that the swim challange has actually done alot of help with my swimming.

    Tonight is the closest squad to a full moon which means Time Trials. 1km of warmup drills, Between each TT we did 200m easy.

    Date.......1000m...400m....200m...100m
    3/02/2010, 16:09, 6:26, 3:06, didnt do 100m that night
    3/03/2010, 15:41, 6:07, 3:02, 1:27,

    Im pretty sure i could have done a fair bit better if i hadnt done 180 km on the bike yesterday. Still Im very happy with that
