100yrd in 1:45
This morning I had a hard time getting out of bed to go swimming - though I am soo happy I did. I had the best swim I have had in a long time. The plan was to swim 3000yrds in 1:05 - so I did 300 warm up, 600, 500, 400, 300, 200 hard, 100 hard, 100 hard, 200 hard, 300 easy. The thing that made my swim today so wonderful is that I was able to average around 1:55 100yrd pace through out the entire work out - even the 600yrd set. I was even able to push myself to a 1:45 pace for my 100s & 200s which were rather late in the work out. It was shocking really - I have felt like I have been stuck at a 2 min 100 pace for a while now. I just felt really strong today - very smooth in the water, no pain in my shoulder which is one indicator that my form was on track, only used the pool buoy on the warm up even and I had energy to spare. It has made my day for sure.
