If I didn't need to get up to pee I could have easily done 3x 4:00. But I had coffee shortly before this. Next time I will go for 4:20.

When you say "all rests 2:00" - do you mean 2 min rest followed by breathe up? Or do you literally end one static and start the next 2 mins later?
I end one static and I start the next one after 2:00 (no separate period for breathe-up). I am using the Static Apnea trainer app by Aled Thomas supplemented by my wrist watch in case I want to do additional 4:00 holds at the end.

trail run/walk ~5.2 miles

Been doing this about once a week for the past few months but I haven't been logging it since it is low intensity. Today I really pushed it though. Head was pounding from sinus congestion.

Warmup 400m
5*100 each in 2:00 rest 1:00

First workout back after my really bad sinus infection. Still some pressure in the left side of my face but it doesn't seem to be impacted much by depth. Only surface swimming for now.
