This won’t be a long post because I can barely keep my eyes open. This morning I wen to the QUAC meet at Fairmont pool in Salt Lake. It is a fun, casual swim meet, and it was my first major gathering of the recently formed SLOW (Salt Lake Open Water) masters team. It was fun to see my friends and get a swim in.
It has been a few weeks since I have made it to the pool. With the move taking up so much of my energy it has been hard to find any time for swimming. I’ve missed it a lot and couldn’t wait to dive in. However, I hesitated in going because I’m so out of shape and its been weeks since I was in the water but I decided to go for it and I’m glad I did.
I ended up swimming 2 relays which were fun. They were my first relays in a competition environment and one of them was all women which is awesome. I was surprised so many wanted me to be on their team given my lack of training. Grateful! I also did my own 50 meter free and amazingly finished in 49.5 seconds. My best time is 48 seconds! I couldn’t believe I got that good of a time considering the circumstances.
Now I am just plain exhausted and am going to take a nap.
