Today was a quickie; in the pool and powered through 1000 m in 18:58. My split was 500 m in 564 seconds (9:24), so I didn't slow down too much in the second half.
No geezers! This is a personal best for me though not much of an improvement. I was sort of hoping for a bit of a breakthrough to get down to about 18:30. I felt strong, but not as smooth as I would like. Maybe next time.
Then 15 min in the dive tank doing pool pilates. I'm sure looking forward to my massage tonight.
