friday morning we went swimming at the nat. did a 7 lap and 6 lap set. so about 1/2 mile. i timed the longer one and it turned out to be 11:30. doing the math that works out to about 44 minutes on the mile length. provided i could go that far. ;-)
so i liked that the pace is not way too slow. that was a huge relief. up till now i didnt know if i was going only half speed. resa is a bit faster, she did it in about 40 minutes. so we can probably stay together on the swim as i get better. she already has a good swim style and can go a lot farther. so hopefully i improve enough to stay with her.
and here is the video i watch several times a week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNnSM7xAZNU
