sent this Email to my coach, Whitney Hedgepeth, a few days ago, to let her know my plans for this season.

Hi Whitney,

Heres my plan for the SCY season.


March 4 - 6, 2010 Austin Grand Prix

April 9 -11 2010 The Woodlands, TX
South Central Zone Short Course Championships

May 20 - 23, 2010 Atlanta, GA
2010 USMS Short Course National Championships
Georgia Tech Aquatic Center
Order of Events

Im training for the 200 IM, 100 fl, & 50 bk.
I hope to improve my times from 2008 & 9
200 IM 1:58.39
100 Fly 51.80
50 Back 24.41 (2008 Nats)

My training plan is:

From Now to April 2nd:
train middle distance & some sprint,
maintain strength & lose weight,

April 3rd - SCY Nats
focus on speed & strength then taper.

Rest & Taper

+ 2 or 3 days for the Austin Grand Prix
+ a week for SC Zones &
+ 2 or 3 weeks for SC Nats

Id appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks for the tough workouts.

"It all sounds good and looks good. Lets see some real backstroke starts soon. I have been real impressed with most of your training lately. Keep up the good work."

    Looks like a good POA. Will you swim those National focus events at both your prior meets to check your progress or experiment with other events?

    hey Pat,
    thanks, Todd suggested I should swim some off events at the grand prix, I might follow his advice
