Race Week followed by R & R

My favorite time is the week following a race.  I love races/events because they are benchmarks, report cards and progress reports.  Even races that don't go as well as I hoped seem to enable me to re-focus my training.

This past weekend (April 6-7) was our State masters meet.   Now besides the fact that I was swimming in the meet, I was also the event director as our team hosted the meet.  It was a ton of work, but the payoff was great.  The event ran smoothly and it was a great fundraiser for our team.

So my last post left off at April 1st....so here's from that point on(I took all last week off from lifting, so it was just swimming):

I'm planning on a nice long swim tomorrow.  Indoors of course, since its snowing here (right as I was about to try for my first outdoor swim of the season we have this crazy spring blizzard hit!)

I've got two big events right around the corner, USMS Spring Nationals in Indianapolis and USMS 10K Nationals in Las Vegas.  This next month is going to go by pretty fast!

I'm hoping within the next week to have some cool announcements to make related to my big summer swim!  Stay tuned!
