  1. Time: 16:14.

After taking a rest day yesterday and getting a great night of sleep last night I went into this workout feeling almost 100%. So when I saw the CFE Rx calling for 1000yd swim at 85% of 800yd TT pace and knowing I have yet to complete an 800yd TT I decided to go for one! The swim felt really good! I came out of the gate strong for the first six laps or so then cruised through laps 13 then gave it all I had left for the last three laps. What was best is that my form felt like it stayed with me well despite the fact that I was pushing myself harder. Progress!
