A Fish Named Terry

I had a good time at the pool today. I did a semi-time trial for the 800 meter distance, in that I went as fast as I could while doing the entire 800 meters (actually 822) and I took split times at every 6 laps or 137 meters. The splits are as follows:

Meter Split Split Time Overall Time
137 2:36 2:36
274 2:49 5:25
411 2:50 8:15
548 2:52 11:07
685 2:57 14:04
822 2:58 17:02

How does this compare? Well, if I regress back to 800 meters from this workout, I get a time of 16:34 for 800 meters. My best recorded times, which are essentially my best times for triathlon swim are:
800 meters in 2002 at 21:27
400 meters in 2002 at 09:23, but would be a 18:46 if I doubled it

Tomorrow is the Scholar's Run 5k I'll let you know how it turned out!
