Sylvain’s Butterfly Swim – Trailer from Sylvain Estadieu on Vimeo.

In the past week …

  • One 8-hour session in the lake. Approximately 21.5 km of butterfly, which is my longest fly swim to date :)
  • One very unpleasant Midsummer swim: water and air much too warm, the sum of the temperatures almost reaching 50°C, no good …
  • A couple of stroke rate experiments, upping it from the usual 22-23 to a manic 28 spm. Doesn’t sound like much but I could feel the extra heat and muscle tiredness. Managed two hours at that rate. Bring on the cold water!
  • Some shiny new Donate buttons and an easier way to donate to my two charities !!

  1. Merci Sylvain pour ton message. J’ai su par David du Varne Ridge que tu tentais en papillon !!!
    Bon courage pour les derniers entrainements !!!

      Ah oui, j’ai vu que tu étais à Varne Ridge, c’est vraiment le meilleur endroit où vivre en attendant de pouvoir nager. Tu auras droit à ta plaque sur le mur :)

      Plus que six semaines pour mois, je commence à sentir la pression monter …

      Félicitations encore, c’est fort de revenir et de réussir de cette manière !
