Went to the pool again yesterday to try to build speed. Didn’t manage to get much faster, but did my exercises. I did notice that my heart rate wasn’t always at the level I wanted (a bit over 160) — I found I was running out of breath before I was able to do that. But I did manage to get it generally into the 150-160 range.
Slept in today because my body felt like it needed it. Hopefully that will translate into some speed gains. I’m still quite tired, for whatever reason.
