tersa, who has been swimming with a local Masters club, expressed admiration of my 9 minute 500 the other day, and supposed that I’d be in the top group in her club, which requires an ability to swim 100 meters on 1:50, which means the swimming and the resting all have to be done in that time period. So, being competitive with myself if no one else, this morning I gave it a shot, to see if I could.

I did the first one on 1:33, which is probably not *quite* as absolutely fast as I can go in my current condition, but is getting fairly close, and the second on about 1:40, and then stood around gasping instead of trying for a third. I might’ve made a third, just. I wouldn’t have made a fourth. :) I said I might try again tomorrow, but I think I’ll be less ambitious, and try again next week. Especially since my shoulder’s acting up tonight.
