Sup gents. So today I decided to do a 200M warmup, 1000M swim, and a 200M cooldown, all using CSS. This was done in a 50M pool.
My 1000 Yards (9 laps) time was 21:59, and my 1000 Meter (10 laps) time was 24:17. This was my first 1000M swim. I had only been doing 500M at a time up until today. (my best 500Yard time in a 50M pool stands at 9:53 - which is 4.5 laps)
What surprised me was I was swimming relatively mellow, knowing I had to do 10 full laps - but I still didn't think it would be this slow. I was expecting a 18:xx for the 1000yard and 20:xx for 1000M
What type of times are you guys laying down for the 1000M? I plan to be swimming 1500-2000M consistently using CSS without fins in the coming weeks.
