So I won the lottery and all I have to do is send $250 to some people in Maryland… hey wait a minute! Ok so I didn’t win THAT kind of lottery, but I did win a spot in the Chesapeake Bay Swim going on in June! I got the email this morning and paid for my entry at lunch. I’m pretty stoked… on top of being a popular swim, it looks like a bunch of my east coast swim friends got in as well! Despite being on the opposite coast from where I am right now, I should have at least 3 friends to catch up with in person at the beach! Now that I bought a spot I have to work on some plane tickets…

Anyways, back to the actual preparation portion of all this competing… I got in a short swim at Kennedy after work. Nothing too exciting (or long), just enough to stretch out my arms and shoulders.

700 swim

400 pull
300 stroke/free by 50
200 kick
100 fast

100 swim

1800 meters total

Tomorrow’s workout in Santa Maria looks like it’s going to be sort of hard so I don’t feel bad about sandbagging tonight :)

So did anyone else get into the Bay Swim?

    East Coast Swimmin', here you come! I actually got in, too — maybe I can talk you into some crabs & beers when it's over… :)

    Sweet, I'm going to have a whole gang of swimmer friends out there! I think some adult beverages are definitely going to be in order after that swim!
