10 minutes - Second Time

For some reason, I had a 1600M swim on my schedule for today. After my long run yesterday, I knew it would be good to get into the pool today, but until today, I have not gone that far in the pool. I think it completely wiped me out.

The first thing on my plan for today was to do a 10 minute time trial. I wanted to see if any progress has been made since last time. But, when I got started it seemed as if it took forever for me to get a good rhythm down. The results?

OSN: 1600M
42:00
10 minute time trial = 400M (350M on January 28)

Some progress. I will take that.

A few minutes after my 10 minute test, I began to get into my grove, both in technique and breathing. It felt good. But, I was exhausted after my swim. There was no time to relax. I headed north to GF with a good friend. We met up with a few others for lunch and went to the Sioux hockey game. The game was slow, but they one and that is all that matters!

Have a great week, y'all!

Peace
