Confessions of a Lane Six Swimmer, Part 4

I've been going to swim practice three times a week. Things are getting a little easier as my technique has slightly improved. I swam my first 100 freestyle a few weeks ago. I've consistenly reached 1,500 yards per practice by either swimming some breaststrokes or using the fins during long freestyle.

Hail to the King ... Michael Phelps

Last week while Michael Phelps set a world record for 200m freestyle (1:43.86), I had to start one of my freestyle sets at 200m. It took me about 5:00:00, including time when I stood up and hyperventilated. I can probably do it under 4:00:00, with fins!
