a solid swim and some new PR's

Did 2200 yards @ lunch. I was hitting some faster paces in the water while feeling comfortable and not just splashing around like loose spaghetti.

So I did:
4 x 100 WU
8 x 100 descending, with paces of 1:41, 1:40, 1:39, 1:37 (new PR!), 1:45, 1:42, 1:40, 1:37 (matched PR!).
4 x 200, keep the pace @ 3:35 for all 4, which I did, except for the last one which was a 3:33.5.
4 x 25 EZ
50 CD

So I did a 1:37 on two of my 100's which is a new PR for me. Considering I couldn't do faster than 2:00 or 1:55 a year ago, I like this new speed.

Then on the 4 x 200 on 3:35, I think I found my HIM swim pace, for now. I was going strong, but not so much that I was utterly wasted. I could hold that pace for prolly 37 mins or so, which is my goal time for that swim. I have 13 weeks to improve!

Tomorrow I am doing a super brick on next weekend's race course up in Ridgefield, CT. Prolly 3 loops of the bike course to really get to know it, then a 10K run, or 2 loops of the run course. Basically my schedule calls for a 2 hour ride, and a 1 hour run. I think this will fill it and it will be good practice for my first Olympic of the season which is in 5 weeks.
