    Thank you. It really all goes back to my 11 years of age group swimming (I started when I was 7), 4 years during college, and continuing afterwards coaching and swimming until I was 24 yrs. old. It just took a little time to get back in shape, drop 20 lbs. or so, and start kicking butt in the pool again.
    What I really want to do is make some SCY Top Tens this year.

    Looks like we're going to tie at Nationals if we swim similar events then!!

    This year I don't think so either. The problem is there is a "new guy" swimming in my LMSC that is 30 yrs, and swims almost the same speed as me. He took my SCM 200 fly record in early Nov., and I took it back the next weekend.
    We will see who gets it on January 23rd. The meet is right here in town at the high school pool. I figure 200 fly, 500 free for sure. Maybe 200 or 400 IM depending on how the schedule is. After that I may just do 50s. I hate to travel 200 miles somewhere just to swim for a few seconds. Why not just do that at home?

    Not really considering I wasn't a breaststroker, and could only split a 1:13 in the 400IM. My fly and free splits were fairly equal at 54/55, and backstroke just took up the 2nd hundred if you know what I mean.

    I don't mind the travelling part, but with my job schedule over the summer I rarely even get to swim practices, let alone compete.
