Heidi’s been wanting to find something fun to do during the Valentines day/Presidents day weekend space. She has some time off from school so we can actually go somewhere together. Me being me, I started looking for somewhere to swim…
I found the Pancake Pentathlon at the Mission Valley YMCA down in San Diego on February 15th. There are 3 versions of the pentathlon available: 50′s plus 100 IM, 100′s plus 200 IM, or 200′s plus a 400 IM. And yes, there are literally pancakes involved :) I decided to enter the 100′s, I’m not hard core enough for a 200 of everything plus a 400 IM on a Sunday morning. The meet starts at 10AM and warm up is at 9AM. If you want to learn more or sign up for this meet all the info is here.
San Diego is quite a drive from Pismo, but I haven’t been down there since about 2001 so I figured why not. We’re going to make a 4 day weekend out of it. I’m hoping to drop in and workout with my adopted team, Conejo Simi Masters, on Friday afternoon and then spend the night in LA with a friend. Saturday me and Heidi are planning to explore SD. Sunday I’ll swim in the morning and we can play the rest of the day. Monday we’ll kinda play by ear.
I’m not sure if anyone else is feeling the urge to make their way to San Diego, hopefully I’ll see some people that I know down there!
