The head coach wasn't there, but we had one of the assistants there to give the coach's workout. It's kind of like when a substitute teacher comes to school for the regular teacher...they attempt to get things done, but the students know just how to twist everything they say or do into a tangled mess.

It was wavy as hell in the pool during this.
14 x 25 Best Stroke @ :35 Fast
did all Fly, held roughly :16-17s.
4 x 400 IMs @ 6:20 done as:
I was 2:45/2:40, 2:40/2:35, 2:35/2:30 on the first 3 groups, then...
- 2 x 200 IMs w/ :10 rest after the first one
- the 2nd 200 IM of each pair is faster than the 1st 200 IM
- Each 400 is also a descended overall time
We all got pulled from the pool. (right when I was going to go fast! ) Apparently the air quality was deteriorating so quickly that the kids were having trouble breathing. The guards had one girl out at the end of the pool who already has asthma problems, and tending to her.
Not sure what it was, but possibly a chlorine problem, or something else??
Well, on top of that, while we were in the showers not more than 3-4 minutes after getting out of the pool, the fire alarm went off!! Sonuva!! Had to get dressed really quick and out. The guards said they weren't sure why the alarm went off, but someone in the high school probably pulled one of the many alarms on the wall to be funny.
At least everyone's okay.
3700 Yards completed...
Oh yeah, I signed up for the BAMFest meet on Bainbridge Island just west of Seattle this coming Saturday. Get to ride the ferry across Puget Sound. That's always a thrill for me since I don't get to go on one very often.
I'm going to be swimming my "sprint version" of a swim meet.
50, 100, 200, 500 Free, and 50 Back.
