the last 10 yards...

It had to happen eventually right? After a last minute reschedule (we were supposed to do this last week on Thursday but I had a mini emergency to attend to), we were finally back in action today at the pool in Santa Maria. We did about 1000 yards worth of warm up and then got down to some lap swim showdown business!

Since it was a 125 and there were no blocks on our lanes today we started from the far end of the pool. It kind of sucks to have to dive in from the gutter for a race, but you gotta work with what you’ve got. I felt ok off the start but no where near as good as what I get off the blocks. Me and Mike held pretty even for the first 75 yards or so. On the fourth lap I started to pull away a little bit… on the last lap I built on that and finally won one of these little races! Super stoked! Here’s the video…

So the good news is I won one! Yay! The bad news is that generally speaking Mike is a much better swimmer than I am and this just lit a big fire under his ass. I have a feeling he’s going to bring it when we throw down on the 150!

    thanks guys :) I guess racing the occasional 200 fly during the last year was good for me!
