The Speedo Biofuse Rift

I’m gonna get my first official swimming lesson tomorrow. I can swim but I can only maintain a breathtakingly slow breast stroke.

I once went a bit crazy and sway a gazillion laps in the pool. I calculated that I swam about 4km that day. It took me about 3 hours as I wasn’t going for any speed record (sound familiar? Same story with my running and swimming). This was about 6 years ago. At that time I was swimming almost everyday and had ambitions of turning into a fish.

I bought some brand new goggles. The Speedo Biofuse Rift. It’s not like the other goggles I have which are small and snug. This one is designed for maximum visibility.

I’m very excited about tomorrow and hope to get some good solid free style technique. My immediate goal is to be able to swim in the 65-70% MHR range and I want to be able to sustain this non-stop for an hour and I want to do this and not make the pool look like a whirlpool.

Like my running and cycling, my focus is all about stamina and endurance. Speed comes later. I do hope that my Polar will work underwater. I surfed the net and there seems to be conflicting views.
Will update tomorrow.
