Batten down the hatches!!!
Well it’s still ugly outside here in California but, at least in my neighborhood, we didn’t get any lightning today so swimming was on the menu. The wind and rain were coming down pretty hard when I was driving to Santa Maria but the rain slowed down at the beginning of my workout… it came down like crazy at the end though! I started out with about 500 yards by myself and 3 other guys joined me as time went on.
There was no planned workout for today so we winged it. I started with my own warm up and when the other guys joined me I started to warm up again! After that we recycled a set from last week good for 1000 yards and then did some fast swims for me since I have a meet on Saturday. We did 10 50′s alternating fast and slow. My first fast 50 I swam a 30 second 50 fly in a sparkly drag suit from a push so hopefully I’ve got it in me to go a lot faster this weekend in my LEGAL techsuit.

Tonight I sat in on my first SPMA conference call as an Executive Board Member. We covered a lot of good stuff and I think those of you in the SPMA region are going to be happy with what we get done this year. If you guys ever have any feedback about what’s going on in the region feel free to let me have it! As Member at Large it’s kind of my job to listen!
