    My main focus for this year is long course nationals at Mission Viejo. Everything else in between is just fluff. My shoulders need a rest so I will be doing more kicking. Less yardage and alot of easy swimming for a while even with the meets I will be doing.

    by , December 21st, 2012 at 08:59 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Even with my left toe hurting with fins on I managed to kill it today! Way to end a great week of training.

    I watched the triathlon group next to me some because a friend who was just returning to the water was the object of chase today. I asked their coach "Is this chase down Jerry day?" he said yes. It was funny to watch.

  15. A Little Late but better than nothing

    by , December 20th, 2012 at 07:17 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I got a late start today so I only had 55 minutes in the pool. I feel I did a good set today and got a lot out of it and got stronger as I went. I guess that is a good sign of a distance swimmer.

    I also have to say that colder water makes for getting alot more done.

  16. Back to the cold water YEAH!

    by , December 19th, 2012 at 11:44 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    The Aquatic Center caters more to us swimmers than the Y does. I feel for my kids that want to work hard but can't because the pool is too hot.

  17. Only 50 minutes

    by , December 18th, 2012 at 07:53 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I had to swim at the Y this morning which limited me to about 50 minutes. I think if I have to do this again I could push it to 60 without having traffic issues on the way to work. The Aquatic Center had electrical issues today so the Y was the only place open and it is in the opposite direction of my work.

    Due to my long warmup/down there is little time to actually swim hard and then the water was 85. Too Hot for me and apparently too cold for the old ladies who do water aerobics and don't like to get their hair wet or makeup messed up.

  18. An old Distance set today

    by , December 17th, 2012 at 08:02 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    This was a day for distance with a long warmup and a long warm down.

    During my kick set the guard had his head in the trash can throwing up. One of the other guards came over to lend a hand and was getting ready to go over to the chair. I warned her she might want to have that chair and rails sanitized before getting up there since he was obviously spreading germs of some sort.

    There has been alot of sickness in this area. One of the swim families here are sharing their flu with everyone and eachother. They all had the flu shot so I guess this years shot missed the mark again.

  19. Kids meet

    by , December 15th, 2012 at 07:05 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    Not too bad today. I didn't feel like pushing but I did some in the end. The 200 fly was ok but not great I just had to beat my swimmers and I did. The 200 IM was ok but I was not going to let at 8 year old beat me when I was so close so I pushed the breast and free. The 50 breast was great for me.

    Yes it is a kids meet and I will be swimming 200 fly with 2 of my swimmers. I told them both "Beat Coach! That is your challenge." We shall see. I don't get faster.

    I will knock out my 200 fly and 200 Im tomorrow along with the 50 breast. That will only leave the 400 IM for the next meet and I will have completed my IMX.
