SB in the Pool

Last week, I was pretty sure I did my first 400m warm up in 6:40. That would have given me a pace of 1:40/100 meters. Not bad. Last night, I was determined to do a 500m time trial right off the bat to see where I was.

500m ... 08:33 (1:42/100). According to this Fabulous Online Swim Split Time Converter Calculator.

Pretty close to my PB (8:25 set May 10, 2005 during my over-training phase, in a 25 yard pool). And way faster than earlier in the year where I was hovering around 9 minutes.

Crap - I'm so close to the PB, I have no choice now, but to beat it.
