Prep 1-Benchmark Swim

This is your first benchmark test. As a beginner part of the goal is to learn pacing, don't go all out in the first 25 with nothing left for the last 25. Try to keep each 25 an even pace but leave nothing going for the wall on the last, you have plenty of time to rest.

Please record your times of each 100.

764m
