I have been bad about blogging my workouts but have kept on swimming. I have felt up and down in the water with some periods of pretty extreme fatigue. My strokes have felt better lately with more consistency on times but my free has been pretty slow (at times slower than IMs for 100s).

Last Saturday, I went to the rec center near my house and swam by myself for the first time in a long time. Our practice had been cancelled due to a a kids meet and a college meet. The rec center is always a bit chaotic on Saturday am and this was no exception. I swam by myself or with one other person but the chaos is with the swim lessons in the adjacent lanes. It is mostly very small kids so there is a lot of crying along with some flying balls and toys. On Saturday, I was surprised though because halfway through the swim, I looked down and there was a person scuba diving with a Santa hat and beard on. I had not seent he announcement but they were having underwater pictures with Santa. There is a Santa scuba diving and then the kids put on snorkels and masks for underwater pics. I was tempted to get my picture taken but the line was a bit long and I had to go to a U10 soccer game followed by an Age Group Penthalon swim meet. Ahh, maybe next year...
