But I have been doing some training in the evenings, and it's been going as well as to be expected. Monday night was the last swim of the month, so I did my 1000-meter time trial. My goal was to do it in 21:26, which, to the best of my knowledge, would be a 1-second PR from my time last February, my previous fastest time.
I hit my watch in 20:54, a 2:05/100-meter pace. BOOM.
|Not too shabby for me.|
I'm actually not 100% sure this is a PR because I didn't keep great records when I was first starting to get serious about swimming. But I can only go through my logs so many times. I did many other longer-distance swims of 1100 and 1300 meters, and even 1000 and 1100 yards, but as far as pure 1000-meter swims, I'm pretty sure this was the fastest I've ever gone.
The sad thing is, while going through my swim logs I discovered I haven't swum a faster 100, 200 or 300 than 2013 or 2014. So, that's depressing. But if I can make progress with my 1000-meter time trial, maybe I can make progress with the shorter distances, too.
