Matt Sets a 303 Lengths Training Distance Club Record
Whilst not an official record it's such a feat that it deserves mention. On the first session back after the two week training break, Matt Steere swam first with Top Squad and then carried on for his normal Masters training session. Both squads were having a go at the Olympic Set where you swim every pool based event at the Olympics. 800 FS / 400 IM / 200 Fly / 200 BC / 200 BS / 200 FS 400 FS / 200 IM / 100 Fly / 100 BC / 100 BS / 100 FS 66 FS (should be 50 of course) 1500 FS The 1500m swim (45 lengths) at the end is shoulder aching. The set is 4.566km long so twice through is 9.133km. In order to make this up to 10k Matt put in a bonus 26 lengths (866m) between the sets. Also, as Top Squad start at the deep end and Masters the shallow end he then put in another 100m to get to the other end totalling out his distance at 10.1k. The first time through the Olympic set he completed it in 1 hour 10 minutes. The second time was 1 hour 20 minutes.
