In case you've missed it, I'm not the best swimmer. I started swimming last May while we were honeymooning in Jamaica. It was hot and they had a sweet lap pool and frankly that seemed like a better plan than running in the heat, so I gave it a go. I was awful. When we got home, I went back to just running until July when I decided to try adding swimming to my training. My first goal was to swim 1600m in an hour (3:45/100m pace). It took awhile. Here is a note from one of my first swims: "Kept my face in the water the whole time, which was hard because I'm pretty sure I'm going to drown at any moment but amazingly I managed to survive." I've come a long way since then.
Last night I hit up the MAC after work for my weekly "long" swim. With Augusta rapidly approaching, I decided each week I needed to do one swim of 2000m or more. Last week was my first "long" swim and Chad had me time myself so I could see my progress. I decided to time myself again and hoped for a good swim.
