1,000 Yards Swimming With Toys

I sorta did a swim workout in that I got in the pool and did 1,000 yards of something.  First I had goggle issues then just issues.  But at least I swam.

100 Yards stopping to fix goggles and adjust them at every 25.   Then I pulled a 100 without paddles using the Headstrong Posture Trainer.    (200)

4x100's on 1:30 Pulling with paddles (400/600)

1    1:18.8     100     1:18
2    1:16.8     100     1:17
3    1:16.1     100     1:16
4    1:18.8     100     1:19

100 kick then another 100 kick using my swim snorkle and the headstrong posture trainer.  Trying to keep my head aligned. (200/800)

4x50's using the swim snorkel and the headstrong posture trainer.  (200/1,000)

I knew I was only swimming for a short time so I used it to work on technique with the toys.  I just can't get use to swimming or kicking with the swim snorkel.  It's annoying but since I bought it I really should use it.  Same for the posture thingy.  It's pretty damn clear that I keep my head way up too high.  Oh well, at least I swam.
