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

    by , February 10th, 2014 at 07:51 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!

  8. A good first day of this kids meet

    by , January 11th, 2014 at 08:19 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.
