So I finally remembered to grab my HRM watch and figure out my 100 yd and 450 yd times this morning. I'm looking at:
100 yd (not fresh, after the 450 yd swim) - 2:11
450 yd (projected from 100 yd time) - 9:50
450 yd (fresh, actual) - 10:31
Comparing my sprint triathlon time to today's 450 yard time, I see:
Sprint Tri - 33.3 m/min (36.5 yd/min)
Pool Workout - 39.1 m/min (42.8 yd/min)
If I used my 100 yd time, I would have 41.9 m/min and 45.8 yd/min, but that's more indicative of a sprint rather than a longer endurance swim which is why I went with the 450 yd time.
Nonetheless, what I see is that I'm faster than my triathlon time. I don't remember doing any swim workouts at that distance before the triathlon and I was nervous and excited and all those race-day emotions so I was a hair panicked in the pool. A small victory.
