    Mon Aug 18th 2014

    I've been an awful blogger.

    I was all set to go to Nats.
    entered the meet, got my flights, hotel, and rent car.
    I made it all the way to the airport gate for a 5:45 am flight. My plane was loading and we had a family emergency, so I cancelled my flight then turned around an went home. I was bummed. I really wanted to swim and see my swim friends.

    I followed the meet from home. My training partner Jim Sauer, 57 tore it up.
    he swam great in his 2 & 4 IMs, 1 fly, 2bk and had a OK 2 FLY, he reminded himself if you go too hard on your 1st 2 50's in the 2 LCM fly your next 2 50's could be difficult.

    I swam last Wed, just an easy taper work out on my own & didn't swim Thu - Sun.
    My team was on break.

    Trained this morning at Mabel Davis with Dakota, Julie, Tyler & Korey.

    Warm up was 3 x 200, done 150 fr, 50 k, skipped the middle 200

    20 x 50 fr on 1:00
    odds 400 pace
    evens 1500 pace

    5 x 150 k on 3:00

    assigned: 3 x 400
    did: parts of it

    Days Till SC Zones

    Yesterday at noon practice, I attempted the hour swim, but I swam a hard on both Tue and Wed mornings, which proved to be a bad idea. We dove in at 12:05 & I swam 3000, but felt like I was on the verge of cramps & I started getting hot so I decided to end my attempt & maybe try again on Sunday, or not.

    Today I didn't set my alarm and woke up at 5:55, which is late, I need to leave my house by 5:45 to get to 6:30 practice with good traffic. But I hit the road to do whatever I could, & encountered much more traffic than normal which delayed my arrival.

  19. FAST FRIED FRIDAY Oct 26th, 2012

    Fri Oct 26th, 2012

    SCM meet is in 35 days, 5 weeks

    Yesterday I came back at noon, decided to rest more before my fast 2 & 1 free
    went 1:57 & 54
    Last night I went to see Madonna in Houston, 160 miles from my home, I was warned the concert start time says 8:00, she took the stage at 10:45 and a DJ played before that.
    It was a quite spectacle, the most elaborate stage set up I've ever seen, everything choreographed, pretty sure she lip synched or was autotuned, but it was very entertaining and she is a remarkably fit 53 year old woman.
    We found her set list online and decided to leave with a few songs left so we wouldn't get stuck in the parking garage which might have added 45 min to an hour more to our travel time. We left around 12:40 and didn't get home till 3:00 am, I slept a little then I woke up at 5:00 am to make todays 6:00 am fast friday practice. So I'm a bit fried and sleep deprived.

    also this morning I drove in on an alternate route, a new section of toll road 130 just opened near my home so I decided to try it while it's free till Nov 11th. 130 is making national news because there's stretches of it where the posted legal speed limit is 85. it's longer and wasn't faster than my usual way but its the fastest way for me to get to the airport or to by pass austin during high traffic hours when I'm headed north or stay off IH 35 when I'm headed south to san antonio. Plus it's just different and kinda fun to legally drive 85.


    Whitney coached
    SCY UT Swim Center main pool,
    Pool was set up with both bulkheads down and in the middle which means, 2 eight lane short course pools. We swam in the north end
