Happy to say that whomever it was that complained about the "older" ATAC swimmers staying in the pool longer than an hour have been shut up. Coach reminded management that ATAC pays for the pool until 7am (90 min) - not to mention of course, the annual pass that gives Jenna & I a "free" ride for however long we want to stay in the pool. Interestingly enough, the complainer turned out to be a noodler who was breaking the rules herself! They apparently pay a fee for the water aerobics class & are permitted to get in the pool 15 min early & stay 15 after at no extra charge. BUT she and another were getting in 30 min early & telling the lap swimmers in the lane next to them that they had to move, because the first two lanes were reserved for their class. Hahahaha - they were informed of reality, that the pool was NOT theirs at 6:30, and in fact, they were not supposed to get in any earlier than 6:45 unless THEY paid an extra $4!!! Talk about justice!!
Anyway, I've been workin' hard in the pool, getting in about 4500 4-5 x a week & getting ready to start my taper for Pan Am's.

Friday we did:
500 back/free warm-up
500 locomotive style Pull
5 x 100 breast/free on 1:45
3 x 100 K on 2:15
12 x 100 @ 1:40, desc 1-3 progressive w/a minute rest before #12 (went a 1:16)
200 choice (kids got out here)
5 x 300 Drill, Pull, Kick, Drill, Breast/Free cool down (4500 LCM)

Saturday I swam solo - had a great need for sunshine & had the 2 year old grandbaby meeting me at lunch to play in the waterpark. Did a paltry 4000 SCY
600 back/free warm-up
2 x 300 P
3 x 200 breast/free
12 x 50 K on 1:00
12 x 50 alt fly & free
2 x 100 IM
2 x 200 IM
2 x 100 IM
200 easy

Getting so psyched for the Pan Am meet! Totally loving weights too, so although I'm excited to start my taper - I'll miss going to the gym!! On the bright side, however, I might actually catch up on my sleep!
