Today, Gail tried out her 100 backstrokel; these were her splits: :56, 1:03, 1:03, 1:05. Her stroke count was 40 41, 43, 41; a nice drop at the end!
For not knowing how to swim one year ago, I was so proud of her today!
But, check THIS out. I had a goal challenge I gave her last week, when she was hitting her 50 backstroke in 2:10 (2:07 was her best) and a stroke count of 44 on each length: Aim for a stroke count of under 40 and a time of less than 2:00. Today, she amazed me with a 1:53 50 yard backstroke and a stroke count of 37 and 35; less on the second length. She shattered the goal!
I am so proud of her! Here she is:
