  5. Much easier day today

    by , October 14th, 2014 at 08:35 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I do have a meet this weekend with the kids. I was going to do 3 out of the 4 events I need to do for my IMX rank. 200 Back, 200 IM and 400 IM. The next kids meet is the freestyle frenzie where I can do the 500 Free which is the last even I need.

    Trying to decide which meet to do, the Zone meet in Atlanta or the Columbia meet. Leaning toward Columbia so that I can have a peaceful fun time. I will miss some of my Atlanta friends but I also have teammates traveling with me now. If you know me well you know why I avoid Atlanta meets. Hopefully that should change next year.

  6. Great 1500 race today

    by , October 11th, 2014 at 12:11 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    This was the fastest 1500 free scm I have done since 2009. I have to say my heat was very competitive among the top 6 swimmers in the heat from 22:09 to 22:26. I can say I actually had to pull ahead of 2 swimmers just to get 3rd in the heat and I was catching up to number 2 but lost by 2 seconds.

  9. Saturday meet not bad

    by , September 13th, 2014 at 04:10 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    Today I had a kids meet. Swam the 100 breast and 100 free. The breast was about what I did last year since I don't swim much breast stroke.

    The 100 free went very well with a best time since I turned 50.

  15. Too many people in the lane today but managed well

    by , February 10th, 2014 at 08:51 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Today I had to circle swim with 2 slower individuals but I do have to admit they were ok with me passing down the middle of the lane and they looked for me at the walls and did not leave in front of me, just before my interval.

    This weekend I had to find some of my old cloths, size 12's. Why is it a few weeks back all I could find were size 12's that I couldn't fit in but now that I can, all I can find are size 14's. It's like they all hid from me in my closet!

  18. A good first day of this kids meet

    by , January 11th, 2014 at 09:19 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    I managed a great 200 breast considering I don't swim it much because of my knees. My 200 IM was 5 seconds faster than my best last year.

    Tomorrow is the 200 fly, 50 free and 400 IM to finish my IMX. I want to go 3:12.07 or better tomorrow in the 200 fly. Hopefully I can get there.
