    Congrats on the relay WR! The other swims weren't too shabby either.

    Congrats on the WR, Ande!

    What did you do to get deeked in breast?

    You can always do a split request in the 800 free.

    Thank you Leslie
    I double dolphin kicked on the pullout
    I've been working on doing my DK just after my hands separate, I did it in the race then spaced out
    I just cruised the 8 fr
    no split req
    it's hard to rock on your last event on the last day unless you've had a light schedule

    I've been staying at it, keeping the age group kids "honest" in their practices. My team isn't one of the "hot shot" teams out there, but it has just the right mix of folks to keep me pushed well, as well as me pushing them. My work ethic is the big thing the head coach likes, and he's trying to see if some will rub off onto the age groupers. I know this added workload is doing well for my swimming, since I'm doing close to my normal season ending times now. I can't wait till taper time.

    So you're training with the kids, cool
    I've written about that in SFF

    how many times a week?
    how far per practice?
    what sort of sets and intervals?
    What's your goal?

    I can't wait till taper time too
