From 2:30's to 1:40's

OMG!! Seriously??

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't have seen it for myself...I was swimming 1:40's for my 100's today!!! So, not all of them were, but the point is - some were.

I felt a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction today. These moments are becoming more frequent and that rocks. Now, I understand that there will still be plenty of bad days and days I feel like I'm swimming backwards, but I'm having more good days than bad and that's worth any bad day.

I felt particularly motivated when I heard Chrissie instructing another lane and I stated that I thought 1:30's seemed unfathomable. She simply reminded me that I went from swimming 2:30's to 1:40's - I could swim 1:30's. I realize that I'm not fast, but I'm faster. Ahhh, progress...finally.
