I swam today, finally. I met my next goal, though – a 1 mile swim! I did two half miles, with a 3-4 minute rest in between. I feel pretty good. My arms are a little sore. The first half mile I did in 21:19, and the second I did in 22:48. Pretty good for the second one, I think. I wasn’t sure if I was going to go ahead and do it, so I just did an easy quarter mile first. I felt pretty good, so I thought I’d go ahead and try for the last quarter mile. It was tough around halfway through, but I got pretty excited about doing a full mile, and that got me through it. Perhaps a tad bit too excited. With 2 1/2 laps to go, I had to consciously slow myself down because I knew I wouldn’t make it at the pace I was going!
All in all, a pretty good swim this morning! Tomorrow: Bike, and an early rise so I can do more miles. Goal: 2 laps, ~8 miles. We’ll see.
