Today, the goal was to relax into the swim and feel the water. I find that distance sets do this for me. I’m willing to entertain that I am an odd duck because of that. LOL I get into a rhythm–a zone, if you will, and I can stretch out. As I was circle swimming, I couldn’t keep all of these intervals. The first 100 of that warmup set was really on the 1:35. The 300 was really on a 4:10. This was to avoid getting behind another swimmer, which would mean interfering with their workout more than I already had. They were very nice and let me pass whenever I came up on them. I tried to be as considerate as possible. My average 100 for the last 500 was around 1:23, which is good for me, and it felt good.

As ever, adjust the intervals, distances, and strokes as needed.
