Somehow I landed back in the pool again… it only took a week, that’s good right? :/ I really need to get my act together in the stripey hole, I’ve got a marathon swim in like 6 weeks… yikes… I mean I’m confident I can do it, it’s just a matter of how well. One of my Santa Maria swim buddies that also has a membership to Kennedy in SLO say he’s going to be swimming nights more often and that fits my schedule pretty well. Maybe we can start scheduling some later swims so I can start packing on some more distance.
We had a pretty healthy group today, at least 7 swimmers that I can think of off the top of my head. Right now Mike is getting ready for Nationals at the end of the week so he’s trying to maintain his intensity and has been mixing in a fair amount of fast 25′s, broken 200′s and stuff like that. He’s looking fast, I’m excited to see how he does!

I felt pretty fast on some of the 25′s and I was strong in that broken 200. I need to get back into more short sprinty stuff on these Santa Maria swim days to balance out longer ocean swims and things like that. I think coming into the summer I should get a lot better with this. I’ve had some major personal life rearrangements recently that once I get them all in order I should have a lot of time to really get down to business with my training.
