Set 1 - Felt sluggish during the 400s and struggled trying to negative split. Did 5 second open turns on the 200 to check scoreboard clock. Hopefully after 2-3 weeks of straight LCM swimming I will become more adjusted to LCM swimming. The last two 400, the negative 2nd 200s were a little better as I was irritated at myself, and really attacked the first 25/200 which led to holding a faster pace all the way.

Set 3 - The results of this set are a good effort for me, and shows encouraging possibilities of speed improvement. I can swim strongly to moderately fast for a long time, but I never have worked on building raw speed. 1000 meters of 85-100% effort swimming were difficult, with my only reward being the times as called out by my coach and then afterwards I was wiped out.
