I slept in and opted not to go the team New Year practice. I'm a little leary of the distance; I recall my shoulder was sore for 6 weeks after one of those practices two years ago. In any event, this practice seemed quite hard. I was bushed the rest of the day -- probably because it's the first time I've used a parachute since November before taper. Parachutes are very fatiguing.
My meet plan for 2013:
Jan. 20: MD series meet in Annapolis
Feb: ?? Possibly I'll go to a SCM meet at Spire with Jimby or have an off month
Early March: Warrenton meet. It's not on the PV schedule yet, but I'm hoping they have it again.
March 16: Albatross SCM meet
April 20-21: Colonies Zones at GMU
May 10-12: Nationals in Indy
Summer: ?? I may try to attend Colonies Zones LCM in Richmond in late June. The meet is on the calendar, but it doesn't specify a pool. I don't plan on much meet wise this summer as we'll be moving. I still plan to swim all the PV meets after the move.
Oct. 26: Sprint Classic
Nov.: Reston Relay/Sprint Carnival
Dec.: NE SCM Champs
We are going away for Spring Break for 9 days at the end of March (23-31). It looks like I could be out of the pool the entire time. Not ideal for Nationals prep, but a great happiness jaunt. I may taper for my March meets and then try to reboot in April and swim through CZ.
Happy happy new year!
