Swim Progress

I swam 750m straight in the pool today! This is the length of the swim for my next triathlon, so this gives me the warm and fuzzies.

A bit ahead of schedule, but I had successfully done 2x400m last week with only a short break between, so figured I'd give it a shot.

My instructor told me I'd find a pace I felt like I could do "forever", and I think I finally found it. Even after 750m I felt quite fresh.

The only problem was my pace... it took about 21:00, which for me felt OK, but looking at previous results in the triathlon would put me in the bottom 10%.

I only started swimming more than 25m at a time in January, so I'm not too bummed about that, but it's obviously something I'm looking to work on in the winter. I have a need for speed!
