I didn't take my pull buoy into the pool today so was committed to my long swim being hard work. I set to do 2000m but ended up a bit over that, which is fine .Perhaps my longest swim without a helper (2166m)? The first 1000m felt comfortable and was done in 26:09 minutes but I started to fade after that. Incidentally that initial pace was slightly slower than I managed in February:
05/03/17 2:42 min/100m
06/02/17 2:38 min/100m
04/01/16 3:02 min/100m
My performance wasn't exactly strong though.
Each length needed more and more strokes in the latter half until the last few lengths were really feeble, and slow.
