Big Swim Meet Tomorrow

My public (that is, JamesF) was pressuring me about why I hadn't posted anything lately. It's been a bit of a busy week, and I haven't had a whole lot to say lately. But rest assured, there is another video on the way--this one is of Luke doing a poem recital for his kindergarten class. It's very cute, and about 15 seconds long.

In other news, I do have a big swim meet tomorrow at George Mason. Mason has the best meets. All of the swimmers are electronically tracked, and their names appear on a big scoreboard with all their times, inlcuding splits. It's a very efficiently run meet with not a lot of time spent waiting for heats and event changes. Plus, the pool is very clean and the temperature just right!

As always, I'm a little bit nervous about it, hoping to do well. I'm swimming in the 100 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 50 butterfly, and 50 backstroke. Just those four events. I hope to break my times, but its been two years since my last meet. The times I care most about would be breaking 1:03 for the 100 freestyle, and breaking 1:25 for the 100 breaststroke. I'd like to get below one minute on the freestyle. I think I am capable, and I feel really good going into tomorrow, but we will see how it goes.

Worst case, it's a really good excuse to get out and do some swimming on Saturday, regardless of how I do. I just have to remember that so I don't get too worked up about it.
