My 11-old daughter had an all night thing at church last night. Since we had to pick her up at 6 am and my wife was not feeling well, I skipped swimming at the Nat. After cinnamon rolls, bacon, and eggs, my 11 year old was still going strong. So with the abundance of energy she had plus that of my 10 year old and her friend that spent the night with us, I finally said let's go swimming. My daughter kept going strong, but finally koonked out around 2:00 while we were eating pizza.
Didn't know how much of a workout I would get in, but I actually did more than I would have at the Nat. Ray and his son, Ben, were there and I joined them for two sets and then kept going. Actually swam pretty hard and kept it going for 4000 yards, then my arms gave out. Not a speed workout, but a good strong swim.
