Always nice to get in with the team. I led the stroke work again today - might be doing so on a once a month basis. Saw some new folks at practice, and they all progressed with the drills and talks we had about the strokes. I made a copy of quicksilver's excellent [ame=""]advice and picture[/ame] and shared it with the group - very helpful visual guide for proper backstroke technique.

On the ladder I kicked the 50's, pulled FR on the 100's (avg 1:09), did IM on the 150's (50 Fly and BK, 25 BR and Fr), and did the 200 as FR. I always enjoy working with the team as it gets me moving a bit quicker than my solo swims.

Added my workout today to my flog for the GTD totals and hit my season goal of 200 miles! Last year I logged 137 miles in my first year back in the pool, and I think that entering the longer open water swims this year pushed my totals up faster than expected. Of course, training for a 10K will do that! Time to adjust my goal (I'm thinking 230 miles will be a good test), but until then ...

Off to help out at the craft fair at my son's school, then perhaps a hockey game at Williams College tonight - no charge, cheap eats, and you can stand right behind the ice for all the up close action.
