Left San Antonio at noon on the 1st and got home at 2:30 am on the 2nd. Slept in this morning and took it easy today. But, since have men's group in the morning, I didn't want to wait until Friday to swim and I went to the pool this evening.
I've got to work off all the mexican food, ice cream, cookies, etc that I ate in Texas. And I have to get ready for the Masters' swim meet at Auburn in February.
I signed up for the meet and for some new events - the 50 Fly and 200 IM. I never swam fly or the breast stroke (because of my knee) in high school - in practice or in a meet. So, I decided to step out and do something new. The way the events are set up it's going to be tough. I start Saturday with the 1650 and Sunday with the 500. But then both days, I have to wait until the final three events to swim again. Saturday - the 100 Back, 200 Free, and 50 Fly which shouldn't be too bad. Sunday - the 100 Free, 200 Back, and 200 IM - I'll probably just try to cruise the 200 Back and then survive the 200 IM.
I also set a goal of 600 miles for 2013. As long as I stay consistent, I should be able to make it.
This evening I was just trying to get a swim in - so Friday and Saturday can be better workouts. Didn't worry too much about speed or intervals - just swimming.
