John is gone to Federal Way for Sr. Sectionals Championships, where I guess Missy Franklin is heating up the pool. My two teammates swam well today. Hannah went a 52.1 to place 38th in the women's 100 Free. Top 32 make finals. She was just 3 tenths off from her high school state time, so that was good. Jared swam a 200 Breast today and got a best time of 2:15. Not bad for a just turned 15 year old. Congrats to both of them. They'll be swimming an event each day all weekend.
So we had a substitute coach today. It was our Novice coach, who is also the masters coach, so it was nice to see her. As far as coaching the practice groups...it was kind of like I remember when we had a substitute teacher in school. Hectic as hell. We were divided into 3 groups: The sectional tapering kids from both groups (in 2 lanes), the leftover Black Group (in 1 lane), and the White Group (in 3 lanes).
I was in the Black Group lane. We had 6 people in there of varying ability levels, but mixed well enough, did a :02-:03 sendoff between people. I didn't push things as hard as I normally do, just to keep the chaos to a minimum.
2 x 200 "IM" (25 Str./25 Free) @ 3:30
8 x 50 Choice @ 1:15 EZ/Fast by 25s
3 x 200 @ 1:00 rest - I started the 1:00 from the 2nd person in the lane, to be fair to the group.
- 1st 200 is EZ Free (2:25ish)
- 2nd 200 Free Pull (2:20ish)
- 3rd 200 Fast Free (2:15)
10 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:30 (ranged 1:16-1:20)
2 x 300 @ 6:00

200 Free Drill (did 3 stroke breathing) w/ Sun Yang 3 breaths on first 3 strokes off turns as well. Fun to "play"
6 x 100 Fast Free @ 2:00 (went 1:02s)
Got out early for work in the morning again. I guess this is my last 4:00am morning, as they're going back to 8 hour days next week, so I'll get to sleep in and only have to start at 5:00am.
