  1. My SCY Meet Plan

    Maybe writing this down will help me get focused. I understand that work and life disrupts our routines however there have been times when I just haven't felt like swimming.

    Luckily, this SCY season there are some great meets close to home.

    Dec 2-4 SCM state meet in Columbia
    -- I probably will only be able to go on that Sunday due to prior obligations

    Feb 10-12 SCY state meet here in North Myrtle.
    -- Less than ten min from the house. Gotta love it.

    March 4th fun meet in Wilmington NC
    -- Maybe I'll swim some "off" events here and have some fun

    April 8-9th Dixie Zone Championships in Cary NC
    -- This will be the big one for me and it will take that long to get myself back into shape.

    Maybe I'll pick a different event to focus on this SCY season. I usually concentrate on the 2IM. I haven't had a descent 200 or 500 in years. Maybe I'll consider a completely different event and have some fun.
