2000 Meters!!!!!!!

Yesterday was a rest day and this morning it was swimming. I'm working on base building right now so don't have a real plan for swimming. Also, I'm trying to get over my freaking in the water and I figure the best way to do that is just go slow and get really, really, really comfortable in the water. Okay. So I headed off and on the way just decided to swim for 30 minutes non-stop. Just go and go and go; that's all. I also decided to go really slow and do some serious work on my form. I've got the idea of the form down I just need to perfect it and have it become so natural that I can continue it when I get tired. So off I go. I decided to hit my watch every 250 meters since that's what I've been doing lately. The numbers:

1st 250: 7:41
2nd: 7:32
3rd: 7:48
4th: 7:33
5th: 6:48
6th: 6:59
500m: 13:43

Totals: 2000m in 58:08

Not too shabby. More important is I was not exhausted; my arm did not go numb; I could have continued but it was getting late. A really, really good swim this morning.

That's all I have to say. I have a ton of things to do at work and no desire to do any of them. Have a great day.

Those numbers look good - a downward trend the longer you went. Good job!

The aftermath

The move is over, though the work will continue for quite some time. It was an interesting week or so. Let me recap: On Thursday, Aug 2...
