Yeah, I counted 9 reps.

Today I did 1 round with a 1 SPL differential:

16 16 16 16 1:44
16 16 16 17 1:42
16 16 17 17 1:40
16 17 17 17 1:38
17 17 17 17 1:34
17 17 17 16 1:37
17 17 16 16 1:36
17 16 16 16 1:40
16 16 16 16 1:42

I'm really pleased with the stead descend all the way down to the 4 x 17 SPL. Teh drop of 1 second between the 6th & 7th was due to a 5 minute interuption by the pool owner asking me to help one of her teenage swimmers who is a "true sinker", but otherwise did these on a 2 minute send off.

I really enjoyed seeing the time drop by 2-3 seconds each repeat and the fact that I was nearly exactly precise with my SPLs.

I ran out of time to do another set of x by 100 but had planned to repeat a similar set using the tempo trainer. This was really interesting for me. Oh, and some lactate happened as well. ;-)
