great Swim Swim Swim! 1500 yd 01:00 70:23 pace

Another 800 yard time trial was on the schedule for today. Mentally this was really hard to want to do this morning so I just told myself to do 8 100s if that felt better. Warmed up with some drills/pulls/kicks. Then I did 2 100s, 2 150s and then something clicked and I did the 800 without stopping!! I went in saying, try to do a 200 without stopping and I kept talking myself into doing just 2 more laps and once I made it to 12 laps, I knew I had it in me to keep going. I only flipped onto my back once because I needed to sneeze! Super strange feeling needing to sneeze while swimming.

I'm guessing it took me about 19-20 mins because it was around 7:30 right when I started my long stretch (telling myself, just swim for 15 more mins) and I was done at 7:50.

Just gotta keep at the pool for the next 3 weeks!
