Last night my wife and I signed to refinance our home, locking in under 4%. Then, I started my day off from work by driving to the corporate office for a task force meeting (it's about 75 minutes from home). Good meeting, even got breakfast there, so that was a bonus. Then I had a late lunch with my wife before pulling taxi duty this afternoon.
I ordered a Yingfa suit before heading to the pool tonight (my first "racing" suit, after some good recommendations from Tim and James). I did not have a full hour, so I decided that Fort's set from earlier this week would be just right. I don't have fins, so I didn't use them, and the set felt good. I was surprised at how quick I was able to get through the back spin drills, pointing out that I need to work on faster rotation when I swim it.
After practice I went to Williams College to watch the hockey game with my son. He was able to get a loose puck, so he was happy about that. I will be able to swim with the local workout group tomorrow - I hope to do the first set (with the 300's) from pwb's workout thread so I can get my base and threshold times down.
I am planning on the following meets for the spring, with the idea to get times in more events:
