Friday Night Swim: One Small Step For Man

Sengkang Swimming Complex


450 metres

Rest every 50m


That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind – Neil Armstrong

Well not that my small step in improvement will significantly alter the course of mankind. But knowing that I start from having zero ability to execute the front crawl, well I’ll take any small improvement I can get.

I think I can see some miniscule form of progress in my freestyle aka front crawl. If on previous swims I have to stop to catch my breath every 30m, now I can swim the whole length (50m) before taking a short break.

Unfortunately, we arrived at the swimming complex a bit late so the swim workout just now had to be cut short.

Next time then.
