Quick 25 Minute / 1500 Yard Morning Swim Workout

Ugh!  It's so dark in the morning!  Woke up at 6:10 and debated internally if I should swim or not.  Usaully if this happens I stay home but today I decided to go swimming.  I knew that I can only swim for about 20-30 minutes depending on when they let us in so it'll be a short swim.  No one was really there so I was on my own this morning.  Sorta made up a set in my head and was off.  1230087_10151727635889737_1601392949_nWarm Up

All pulling with paddles.  Hey, I got to teach 3 spin classes today so no morning legs!

My goal was to descend or speed up my base pace.
