500m Swim TT

The 500m swim TT is a personal little fitness test I like to spring upon myself every once in a while. 500 meters is 20 lengths of a 25 meter pool. (Note that prior to 2006, most of the times were established at Champagne Bath pool in Ottawa which is a 25yd pool - 500m is approximately 22 lengths - of course there's a slight performance boost with the extra flip turns).

2019-05-030:08:09Nav - 25mFelt good until 14th length; maybe lost a second stopping watch.
2018-09-190:07:59Nav - 25mNice. Probably closer to 7:58; took a bit to stop watch.
2018-02-070:07:57Nav - 25mWoah, not really trying too hard. Did this after a mid-paced 500m warm up
