Having bought my new toys it only seemed reasonable to learn how to use them (well an estimation anyway!) …


With the help of the Internet, the power of Google and some witch like incantations, I worked out that my Critical Swim Speed might be 2:19 therefore meaning that Mode 2 on my timer would be about 34s. Apparently incorrectly, I decided that mode 1 could be used as my stroke rate metronome. Rather than setting the number of strokes, mode 1 lets me enter the time per stroke. Day one I am using WU and CD pace 1:09. I may change to using the number of strokes per minute… Must conform I suppose!!
