Swam w/ Dave and Dave. My kids had a meet in Boaz, AL last night that ended at 9:30. It is about a 75 minute drive from my house so, we got back in at 11:00. I was kind of dragging at practice. It was worth it though. My daughter finally got "called up" from the development team and dropped 3 seconds off her 50 free time in a fairly slow pool. My oldest son dropped 2 seconds off his 50 free time and then shocked everyone by dropping another second off his 200 free relay split. That one second drop turned out to be significant since they won by .6 seconds. He's got some great teammates. Starting swimming competitively at age 15 when everyone has been swimming for a long time has to be intimidating. Instead of negative talk about how much faster they could be if someone else had showed up, they all told my son he could go fast enough for the team to win the race. It was fun to watch and worth being a little drowsy this morning.

    Breeja Larson didn't start swimming until she was 17 so the sky's the limit!

    You never know! Right now it is just fun to watch them enjoy swimming. I'm just trying not mess that up. This fall is going to be tough. His coach wants him to swim w/ the year round team. The problem is that practice would conflict w/ soccer which he isn't willing to give up. He wants to swim w/ my team until next summer. I think that is good because there are some great swimmers on my team that can help him. We are also fast enough to challenge him as he is learning and our workouts would build up his aerobic base. The problem is that it becomes really easy for me to turn into "coach dad".
