Monday, Dec 31 - One Last Swim in 2012

Went to my old high school pool in San Antonio and swam with some Masters of South Texas. It was a short workout but that was ok - I was really sluggish with all of the tamales, rotel, cookies, etc. Then, on the way home, I bought some Krispy Kremes for everyone since that is what Dad used to do. Oh well, it's the holidays - eating at family get togethers is what we do. The swim will at least help tide me over until I get back to swimming in Madison on Friday.
Finished the year at 592.92 miles. Pleased with that, particularly after missing about a month in August thru October. My goal was 500 miles. Now I'm trying to decide whether to keep that goal for 2013 or go for 600 miles. My concern is focusing on distance (which I know I did in 2012) versus quality/speed.
My friend, Peter, was at 799.42 miles as of yesterday. I know he'll swim this morning and will probably end up over 802 miles. I know Dave and Dave are over 650 miles, maybe even 700. Even if I swam on Thursdays, I couldn't keep up with them - distance or speed. But, I'm glad they let me hang around - it helps me keep going. Thanks for your friendship guys!
Happy New Year everyone
