It's getting better all the time

The title of this post is a Beatles song but it applies nicely. This morning was by no means easy but I'm swimming better. Still wearing myself out but doing it more efficiently. I only had to take 4 laps off for breathing catch-up (kickboard and backstroke) and was able to make 16 of them in freestyle with minimal stops at the wall. I figure when I can do 20 laps without stopping, it's time to start figuring out real workouts. Until then, I just pretend to adjust my goggles while stopping at the wall.

In other exciting news, I got my super suit today. Turns out that Finis is actually in Livermore, about 1/4 of a mile from where I work. After ordering it, I called them to see if I could just come over and pick it up but unfortunately it had already shipped. No worries though because it arrived at my desk within 24 hours of ordering it. This is officially the first time I've ever bought a swimsuit that comes with instructions. I had better be faster.
