---5 fast
400 pull fast rest 30

Our coach is back from a six week surgery recovery period. Glad to have her back! I consider myself a self motivated person but highly doubt I would train well swimming solo all the time. Bravo to those of you that do. We have had team practices while she was out but it is not the same.

    I am also happy with the structure, as well as the mild drop in parental stress, that school provides.

    Though I don't workout with y'all, good to hear coach is back on the deck.

    The busier we are, the more smoothly our lives seem to be.

    Yes it is good to have her back. No more slacking for me.

    Side note: Hopefully info for the Columbia meet will be up soon. Hope to see you there. USC plays at home the entire month of Nov, so the meet will probably be late Oct or early Dec.
