    Way to go on that breaststroke! That is a very significant barrier to get under.

    yeah that would probably be a good idea. Perhaps treat it like weights which I am assuming you drop about a month out. That way you avoid injury and have time to fully recover. I am sure it's hard though since you enjoy it so much.

    The EPL is shaping up like a chess match this season. Fingers crossed it will go like that all the way to the end of the season.

    Thanks, Steve. That start has taken me years to perfect (but it depends more upon who is swimming in on the finish...I have Chris's breaststroke timing down perfectly!).

    Thanks, Stewart. Next rest meet is Region VIII Sectionals in Jenks, OK next month.
