Last night, I set a PR in the 1000. My previous best was 3;20.2 and my goal was 3;17.5 or better. Unlike my 500m PR, I got off to a good start and got into a 32-33 spm rate at a 1:36 pace. I was surprised that I could maintain the pace and only saw my pace drop to 1:38 on one stroke.  My finish wasn’t much different than the rest of the race, but I did increase my pace to about 34-35 @~1:34 for the last 200m.

I think that I will try another 500m PR in the next week or two. My lungs are still a bit raw from last night.
