My USMS Times
YouTube Videos of my swims
Tonight was a very crowded pool, and it doesn't look like things are going to get much better for most of the winter season. We've got a pretty large team, and just don't have the pool space/time to better split up the groups any. As we have it now, our Black group (older kids) have 3 lanes (sometimes 4 depending on the attendance of the White group) every evening, but now that the high school girls are now all back from their "vacation" after the h.s. season, it's getting nuts in practice! We swam tonight with 7 in my lane, 8 in lane 5, and 8 or 9 in lane 4. It was like a washing machine practice out there!!

6100 Yards - I'm tired now, but did make it to Taco Bell after practice for a little 4th meal action tonight.
That main set kicked my butt, and I'm sure most of it was the fact that we were so crowded in the pool tonight. John had everyone leaving 3 seconds apart so that the lead person in each lane wouldn't be running in to the last person in the lanes on the 2nd 50s of the 100s. All the wave action probably added a few seconds to our times as well, though I still managed to do pretty good anyway.
