I went into the pooling thinking I'd do a nice easy long swim today. The pool wasn't too full, so I hopped into a lane where someone was getting out. I started at a nice relaxed pace, then notice my lane-mate was slowly gaining on me. Couldn't have that! So I picked up the pace a bit. She followed, but didn't try to pass. When another girl joined us, it turned out all of us were about the same speed.
2K, 39:49. Lap times were:
1:50, 1:59, 1:56, 1:54, 1:57, 2:03, 2:02, 2:00, 2:02, 2:01 (500 m 19:46)
2:00, 2:01, 2:02, 1:57, 2:02, 2:02, 1:59, 1:58, 2:00, 1:59
That's probably the most consistent lap times ever for me. My legs feel fine, but mostly they just trailed behind today.
