March ZWEMMEN (Fish Thread)
Quote | Reply
zwemmen = to swim in Dutch. I am taking Dutch I this semester.

March 1:

The foam? That is from my kick.
run: 5 mi
swim: 4700 yds
Main set was 12 x 100 on 2:45 best average, held 1:15. On the ninth one, I looked at the clock, turned around, and saw all the nice foam - hot-tub-jet type foam - from my kicking.
If it were milk, it would have been butter.

Cool. Let me know if you need help. First time ever I've known anybody to voluntarily take up Dutch.

Oh yeah. This is the fish thread. I just popped in because of the Dutch reference. So, back on topic. I will go to the pool this afternoon. I will move myself from one wall to the opposite wall, repeatedly. At some point I will have reached 2000m and I will get out. But to call my swims 'workouts' would be an insult to vissen the world over.

I think the closest one I have is



Een oude bok lust nog wel een groen blaadje
An old goat still desires a green leaf
Dit wordt gezegd van een oude man die een jong meisje trouwt.
This is said of an old man who marries a young girl.

Wanneer leren de meeste mensen het best? Het klinkt als een open deur, maar mensen leren het best als zij klaar zijn om te leren.
Er klaar voor zijn betekent dat iemand dit op intellectueel, psychologisch en lichamelijk gebied is.

Congrats on starting off at the top!

I think this thread is too smart for me.

No pool today, instead I'll be swimming through the 12+ inches of snowfall here. Tomorrow's daily swim special is the modified Monty set I couldn't do last week, looking forward to it.

Tot ziens.

Edit: changed snow fall to snowfall. See... I am right about this thread being too smart for me.

I can tell, as that's not really swimming related :-)

Monty was talking about doing what I did last October...
56x100@1:30 alt IM & fr

I got to the point where one breath on the wall upon completion of an IM and start right in on the next freestyle.

March 1st. One of those lovely cool, windy days, which meant the 50m outdoor pool was deserted. 8 lanes, 8 swimmers. Perfect!
Lunchtime: 8km run

Main set: 10x200 pull @ 15 seconds. Times were: 3.10/09/06/07/06/05/06/07/07/07. S-l-o-w-l-y getting down towards 1.30 speed in my reps.
1000 easy.

My favorite math professor is from the Netherlands and he offered to teach a course if enough of us were interested. I jumped at the opportunity - fantastic professor - and it's impossible to turn down an offer to learn a foreign language.


That's a great swim for the first time back!

I speak 3 languages and know a few general greetings or thank you in 4-5 others. Dutch is easily the most difficult to my knowledge. I think a general greeting (like good day or how's it going) is a 10-12 syllable event.

Good for you TC!!
