I did my longest swim today – 1700 meters. I’m hoping to build to 2000 meters comfortably by April and 2500 by May. Today’s swim felt hard but I really pushed through! I did a 400s/200k/100p warm-up and then did 4×100 IM, then 10x50f build, then a 100s warm down. The best part was that I did not feel sick at all. I got out and felt tired with that overall feeling of a hard workout. Now I feel peppy and back to life with this yummy lunch smoothie.
