33:40--bring on that Phelps kid

I did something remarkable yesterday--for me.

Please note the "for me" qualifier. This is otherwise known as "dramatically lowering the bar."

For totally unknown reasons, I swam a mile today in 33:40. That included three hundred meters of breaststroke and was only part of a longer workout.

That's a very poor time for a good swimmer, but for a poor swimmer (me), I felt like Mark Spitz on the Wheaties box. Before that image makes you feel panicky, let me assure you that the visual does not include a Speedo.

And we all breathe a huge sigh of relief.

That's still a long way from 30:00, which is my target for this year, but it's over a minute closer than I was a month ago.
