Swimming progress

I only swam today; 750 warm up, 250 of 25 drill/swim.
Then 10 x 100 on the 2: 1:41, 1:42, 1:41, 1:39, 1:39, 1:38, 1:39, 1:39, 1:38, 1:38.
Average: 1:39.4, or .6 better than last week.
200 c/d

I had to admit that the first 3 slower reps surprised me as I felt good. Note: there was a lady in a purple suit to my right, 4 ladies in a row to my left (one in a small workout bikini). I challenged myself to try to catch them when I could and that probably helped.
