My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 07/23/12 - Monday workout

    Played soccer last night. Along with our regulars, 5 youth coaches from England played with us. I think we ended up playing 7 v 7 with a couple subs. They were all 18-25 and in significantly better shape than the rest of us. Things moved so fast, I had a lot of trouble keeping up. Defensively, I was burned regularly. I seemed to play better at forward where my speed made up for my lack of skill.

    Practice this morning was pretty much the same thing. Phil brought his friend Cameron who was somewhere in the middle of the pack of the 200 Br swimmers at the Olympic trials. With Sam and Charlie, we had a good mix of college swimmers in our workout. I had no chance of keeping up but it was fun having them there.
