Not only has it been difficult to get back into a blogging routine but it has also been difficult to get back to my gym/swim routine during the past week. I've only been to the gym once and to the pool once since I got back. I want to fix that this week.
So, I was pleased that I was able to swim 1050m yesterday. Even better, I completed the distance in ~50 minutes since I took both fewer and shorter breaks.
To put that in perspective...
The swim standard for my age group at the recent FINA World Master's Championship is 16:20 for the 800m freestyle and 4:25 for the 200m breaststroke.
