Tuesday was the awards ceremony from the Starlight Invititational Meet. I ended up being the last one called up, and John said some nice things about me and what I've done for the team over the past year with the kids. He told them all that I'll be leaving from the team at the end of July, but will still have one more race day with them next Friday at the Champs Meet in Pasco, WA. The "final hurrah" of sorts. Everyone gave me a nice applause, and it made me feel good inside.

No swimming after the awards for me...I took a day off


Wednesday I went to the pool, did the practice, but was so beat up and tired from work and swimming to remember what I'd done, plus I didn't write it down last night, but was around 5000 LCM. It was more laid back, kind of going into taper type of swimming.



800 Free

w/ fins (I used my short fins):
8 x 150 Kick @ 2:30 (50 Fast/50 EZ/50 Fast)
I did 50 Fast SDK on back/50 EZ SDK on back/50 Free Swim EZ, and was still barely making the interval

16 x 50 Free Pull @ 1:15
Odds EZ, Evens FAST

200 EZ

8 x 100 Broken @ 50 for :15 rest - whole thing @ 2:45 - Go FAST
I did the first one Fly, and went fast, not sure of my time, but it felt good. After that I hopped to the back of the lane, and did moderately fast freestyle, but that depended on if I caught up to a backstroker, etc. Not really a whole lot of effort exerted here after #1

200 EZ

8 x 50 @ 2:00 Odds V-sit scull, Evens Front Scull

500 Free Swim EZ cooldown
on a couple of the lengths I showed the kids in my lane how I can complete a 50 meter length on 8 "dolphin dives". They didn't think it was possible, but I showed them.

4900 LC Meters

No practice on Friday, or Saturday this weekend. I'm just going to relax for the weekend, well, besides work duties. Only a few more days of practice next week, then I'll probably shave down for my final races: 200 Fly, 400 Free, and a stupid 50 Free, which may be Fly possibly.
