Mixing it up this year

I really like my toys and will continue to use them. The mix will be both distance and sprints. My focus for this year is to maintain my 200 fly time.

  1. When the chemicals are off

    by , July 22nd, 2015 at 07:25 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Today I came out of the pool with dry mouth. Chemicals were off yesterday and today but today was worse.

  4. long one today

    by , July 18th, 2015 at 06:05 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    After 4 hours at an outdoor kids meet coaching in the hot sun, after only 2 packs of peanut butter crackers and coffee it was time to go off to the CCAC for a swim.

    I admit I have become a distance swimmer with the first one from a dive and slower than the second which was from a push.
