    That is so funny. Mr Unruh's reputation proceeds him. You have to love google translate!

    Thanks Patrick. We will have fun.

    Tough workout - Nice swimming! All 150s free I assume. That's too much free for my liking, but I can think of a variant that would be a good challenge, just adjust the intervals and do 3-stroke IMs. Perhaps I'll try that some time.

    Thanks Karl. I am very proud of her and her 2back was by far her best swim of the weekend. Her back looks really strong.

    She is struggling a little with racing at the moment. She won't go out fast because she is afraid of dieing but as you can see from her splits she has lots of endurance. She paces everything, including the 100s. Her coach is also playing with her tempo on all her strokes and it's going to take a while for her to feel comfortable swimming at a higher tempo. I have to keep reminding myself that she is 11. The main thing is she is still having fun!

    As you know, it's awesome being a swim dad and I have some terrific experiences as a result of being able to share a common passion. We stayed at a hotel in lewisville this past weekend and we had some awesome moments together. Long may it continue.

    I I hope you and your daughter are still having fun swimming!

    If you stay an extra 30 minutes I will join you when I do not have to be at work at 8

    Thanks!

    Yes, that was the plan. She likes to challenge us.

    That was a nice set of 100's sir!

    Asking to go 0:03 faster than sprint 100's for 50's on 1:20 seems to be pushing it. Maybe that was the plan

    Yes, that's where they have the USA meets. Pretty close. I will check the hours just in case, but swimming is so time consuming. I'm not sure I'll be able to carve out enough time.

    Great set of 300s. That interval would be tough SCM.

    I am off to California tonight and don’t get into San Jose until 9pm pacific. I am planning on swimming with Stanford masters tomorrow and Wednesday and then swimming with pwb at Burlingam Masters on Thursday. Should be a great week of training.
    Looking forward to ... hopefully, a good Thursday morning of drafting

    Travel safely and see you in Cali.

    i have not suffered too bad because of all the rain but this last week has been pretty bad.

    Big Bang Theory is about the only TV show that I can get both kids to sit down and watch although my son went off it somewhat when he found some error in the story a couple seasons ago. Kids!!!

    Lately I have been taking Sundays off, but that may change when Barton Springs reopens this week.

    The open water hustle and bustle experience was good fun! Might not have been quite the Tough Mudder going on at Mt. Snow this weekend, but tough enough for this mudder.

    There's a good reason for "TGIF", especially if closing in on a recovery day over the weekend.
