The 400 IMs were at moderate effort, but then later it was a struggle to swim Sets 2 and 4. Starting out Set 2, the 1:18 100 free felt like 1:10, and then later, the final 1:07/100 FR felt like swimming at 1:18! Go figure.

About six weeks ago I got a full size table tennis table for our family game room. Since then I have been playing with my wife, daughter and son almost daily. My ten year old daughter has improved dramatically to the point that she can really keep the ball coming back over the net again and again. I was so sore during the first week, but playing table tennis for 30-40 minutes is a good workout. While not swimming specific, I can run around chasing that little white ball pretty good now.

    While I don't chase a little white ball around, I frequently have to chase around my 2 -1/2 year old granddaughter - and she can give me quite a workout too! Amazing how exhausting kids can be - and how much darn energy they have!!

    That's one of the reasons for all your hard training in the pool, tennis, and weights!
