So, as background: At the beginning of the semester, I could barely do a 25 butterfly alone. That would waste me right there, no more swimming for the day.
Today I did a 400 IM, sorta. First of all, a 400 IM means 100 each of Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Freestyle, in that order. By "sorta", I mean I took a 15 second break after each 25 of the first Flies... but no break for the rest. This is something I *could not do* just two months ago. And now I'm planning how I'll reduce that break until I can do a 400 IM by the end of the semester. When I reflected on this, I got amazed and had to post.
Of course, right now my pecs hurt.... but then again, it's neat that I have them now.
