Rate this Entry
I figure that swimming 2-3 days a week is sufficient enough to keep my body in shape. Actually keeping it in superb racing form, I doubt it, but we'll just have to see with this weekend's meet on Sunday. At least it's right here at home.

I also have to deal with a 12 hour workshift tonight, ending at 3:00am, then have to wake up on limited rest to prepare for and host a birthday party for my daughter...then off to work again Saturday afternoon again. I love my job sometimes!!

All this in turn with working on my house project has made me one tired James, but that's not going to stop me from giving it all I can at the meet. I did hold back a little bit on my event selection, but not much.
400 IM, 200 Fly (in the 200 Free event), 200 Fly, 50 Fly, 500 Free.

It's a low turnout this year, at least on the online entries...only about 40 or so. We'll see how many paper entries got turned in. This LMSC tends to have quite a few of mail in entries as the online thing just went "live" with us last season...but it is catching on quickly.


My swim this morning...as I drug myself across the pool deck before waking up on splashdown:

That double descend was fun...especially on the 2nd one but I made them all

4 x 175 Free Pull @ 2:15 (held them between 2:00-2:03)

I was lazy at this point and got out...plus I had to meet my dad back at home to work on the house.
