Yesterday, I went to the pool for 7th time or so. I felt good, so I kept swimming and was able to do 1,000 yards (20 laps). The first time I went, 100 yards (2 laps) was tough so I have definitely come a long way. I also clocked myself and did the first 500 yards around 15 minutes and the second around 16 minutes. Speed is not really a concern but it will be interesting to see what I get in the triathlon.
Side note: My goggles may be too tight b/c I had rings around my eyes that looked pretty funny.
