Default A new experience by TT

Terry,

Look at this please:

TT Time/100 meter

01.16 01.32
01.14 01.32
01.12 01.33
01.14 01.34
01.12 01.35
01.10 01.33
01.12 01.33
01.10 01.32
01.08 01.31
01.10 01.32
01.08 01.30
01.06 01.30
01.04 01.29
01.02 01.27
01.00 01.26

My plan was to swim 5 x (3x100 mtr) going down 0,02 for 3 consecutive swims, then start a new round by starting point 0,02 above the fastest in the last round. I became more and more frustrated because nothing really happened. For my last round I decide to swim at a stroke rate, that I have not tried before. So from 1.10 down to 1.00 it started to look better. An increase in stroke rate with 9 % resulted in an increased speed of almost 7 %. That makes some kind of sense. How do you interpret this information? Am I too lazy swimming around 1.14 instead of 1.00 or what? Shall I swim my sessions at or around 1.00 instead?
