    Isn't it great when we start to realize some gains in our training/timed swims? Well done!

    Thanks Mike. I find 200s nearly always hurt but this was one where I did not hurt and really felt good the whole way. I was really happy with all my swims.

    there was nothing official but one of the guys I spoke with from Rosebowl said something about a new pool in along Beach being built and this meet would move there in the next two years. I don't know if what he said is factually correct or whether it's the Belmont pool or not.

    I found this earlier

    Not yet but it's getting close. Thanks I was quite surprised by the 200 back and even how good I felt at the end.

    Thanks Leslie. I have enjoyed doing the backstroke a lot and I am likely to add a few more events this spring for fun. I promised my daughter I would do the 200 breast, 200 fly and 400 IM in a meet so at some point I will have to hold up my end of the bargain. 😁

All that said,I have been really happy with all my events (so far) at this meet.

    Thanks so much Patrick. I had nothing really to go by on this one but I did not expect in my wildest dreams to go that quick.

    LA Fitness seems to be in more places around the country. I see them almost everywhere.
    On the disgusting side. And extremely shallow. Mine is 3 feet in one end with about 2 feet of water. Hopefully, you're will be nicer since it's brand new.
