Look to Build the swim very gradually.
Overall goal is the distance, not the pace.
This workout is about training your mind as much as your body.

Normally 1k yards wouldn't be much mental training. I'm one who likes to day dream while swimming. It was tough due to caloric deficiency. I ate a lot today, but I trained at harder intensities then I'm used to (morning spin) and I trained a lot. Spin, bike commute to and from work and then swim. I got dizzy during the 1k. I took the pace at what felt easy, yet 1:41 avg is usually pushing it a bit for me. Remember I do 100's at 1:35 give or take 2 sec. Then again I'm a better swimmer when fatigued. I'm less mechanical.
