Big Group Swim

>> Monday, March 01, 2010

Julia got some of the gang together for a morning swim yesterday. We were to do some 100s and some kick drills. Seven people showed up, and we took over 2 lanes. Here’s all of our crap at the end of the lanes:



Here’s 5 of the others working on some of their 100s:


Kelly and Pam in my lane, Steve H, Julia, and Kathryn one lane over

Chatting between sets:


Steve T, Julia, Kathryn, Steve H, and Pam


Kick drills

The whole gang, post workout.

Julia joked afterwards that next time there will be a “Steve” lane. I told her I can’t keep up with the other Steve’s!! Some of us were watching Steve T do some of his final sets - his swimming is a thing of beauty! He creates such a wake that Hawaii has to sound their tsunami sirens! (Too soon? Sorry.)

My fastest set of 100s (my first set) averaged 1:27.0. My slowest set (my last set) averaged 1:28.3. That's consistency!! Now I just need to work on my speed. And my kicking. And my breathing. And my pulling. And my turns. And my sighting. Crap. ;)

Thanks for the workout, Julia! (And Jen!)

Man, I wish I had some great training partners to suffer through my swims with me. Unfortunately, my friends won't jump on that bandwagon yet. BUMMER!

Ha! No, definitely not too soon. Better safe than sorry, though.

Aww, thanks Kim:)
Great pics. I think my hubby is finally figuring out which Steve wears a speedo. HA!!! I am too funny.
PS Steve T led our lane, i was 2nd. No draft there bc after 25 yards he was gone! He is a beautiful swimmer!

that is consistent (on the 100s timing). Where do you guys swim? Aren't you just ready (already) for open water and summer?????

Yeah Kim, Julia's great!! ;)

And Amy, we swim at the St. Paul YWCA near the Cathedral. And I CAN'T WAIT for open water!! I've been watching the ice recede on the Mississippi as the weeks go on!!....
