In an attempt to bring back this blog to life, here’s a short list with goals for this year. They might evolve in the next few months, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
Goal One: Break the minute barrier for 100m in SCM (haven’t timed myself in a 25-meter pool in a long time, so I’m not quite sure where I’m at …)
Goal Two: Finish Vidösternsimmet! (after giving up after 13km in 2012)
Goal Three: Finish Vidösternsimmet … in style, i.e. fight for the win among the non-wetsuiters (very dependent on who actually shows up)
Goal Four: Do a “Not-quite-a-Sub-32-Marathon-thingy”.
The original concept is to manage a swimming marathon (10 km) under 3 hours as well as a running marathon (42.195 km) in under 3 hours. I’ve never been a runner, so I can forget about running a marathon that fast, especially since I’m not willing to train as much as last year. I’m not going to go for a marathon at all, actually. I will try to give it all on a 10k though. My ultimate goal could be to do the swim-thing in under 3 hours in the Delsjön lake and then (the same day or the day after) run one lap around the lake at the pace of a 3:00-marathon. Which would mean …. 10 kilometers in 42:40!!!!!! Very ambitious, and I probably won’t get close to it, but I’ll have fun trying.
Goal Five: Swim-a-sketch … more about it soon.
