Progress in the Pool


The 2nd annual May long weekend training extravaganza was just upon us. A great opportunity to go full-out again on a 2000m swim time-trial. I swam extremely well last year, and was pleasantly surprised with my time. After a full-year of 3x per week masters, I have managed to chip away at the time even more. 2 minutes and 10 seconds faster over 2K. Not bad.

Splits were: 500m at 7:59 (1:36/100m); 1000m split at 16:20 (1:38/100m); 1500m at 24:43 (1:40/100m).
