9/7/06 Workout – Swim

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.
