Not that anniversary...my work anniversary.
I just completed 8 years at my current job as a Line Mechanic @ Stemilt Growers, which is by far my longest term job I've had thus far. [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVad0LOCwQQ&feature=channel&list=UL"]Packing Organic Apples - YouTube[/nomedia](with no sound) that shows some of the main packing line in our main plant in Wenatchee.

"Main Set" - That's my title for it, because it was the only good thing done today.

5000 Yards



I'm going to skip tomorrow night's practice, so I can get to bed at a decent hour for the Saturday morning marathon drive to Sandpoint, ID for the SCM meet.

John, my coach, wants me to really negative split my 800, and work the walls. And I guess have fun, but he didn't say that...

    Good luck on the negative split. The good news is that you should be tired enough from recent workouts that you won't have early, easy speed.

    Thanks Patrick. I've been feeling good with my freestyle, and the longer distances tend to do well for me lately too. Even in the "crummy" pool that I'll be at, it should still be a good showing.

    I need to be sure to "get sick" the next time we do this particular test set day.

    100 IM kicks are annoying for sure, but holding ~1:40 is pretty darn good in my book.

    Thanks Karl. It's disappointing when I'm looking ahead of me at the kids doing this no problem at all, avg'ing 1:23ish-1:30s. I was around 5th best in the group, but had lots of folks at the same speed as me.
