February looks like it’s going to be a busy month for me. Depending on a few decisions I make in the next couple days I could hit upwards of 4 swim meets. As it stands right now I am a lock for the UC Irvine meet on February 8th and the FAST meet in Fullerton on the 22nd. Beyond that I may go to the Rosebowl meet on the 7th and the Mission Valley YMCA Pancake Pentathlon down in San Diego. If I do all of them it will be a lot of traveling and a lot of money for hotels and stuff. I think it’s worth it though, I like going to meets and I’m glad I have access to a lot of them living here in California.
It looks like I’m going to need to find places to stay in Pasadena, Irvine and San Diego this month. Anybody have any recommendations for me?
Otherwise in February I’m hoping to stay healthy during the month. I started tracking my swims with USMS’ Go the Distance program at the beginning of the year and in reviewing my number I realized that I really lost a lot of days to being sick. I swam about 13 miles in January and I’m hoping to increase that number substantially in February. If you haven’t signed up for Go the Distance I recommend it. It’s an easy way to track your distance month to month and it’s a free program. To learn more about how it works and what you need to do to sign up click here.
