UMD Club Swim- Alumni Team
|Me in my natural habitat. A pool.|
Anyone on club swimming with me knew I was one not to skip events, or back down from the "harder" events. But what they didn't realize, was that the "harder" events for me meant sprinting, and I can do pace wayyyyy better than sprint. So you see a terrible terrible 1650? I see a nice warm-up swim.
Well, maybe not, cause I am sore today. So not so much warm-up swim, but at least a long pace, haha. I went a 19:37.30, and considering I can't even remember the last time I swam a 1650 in a race, I am pretty damn happy with it. That's right around 1:11's, and I think that is fantastic. I won both the mile and 500, which is so awesome!
Also, I managed to lap everyone else swimming the mile at least once. Not sorry 'bout it ::hairflip:: hahahaha
But really, I thought it was a fantastic swim. Then I swam the 500, and went a 5:48, so barely under 1:10 pace, which again, I thought was pretty good, especially after swimming the mile already. I was happy to go at a faster pace, though like always, I wish I had gone a tad faster. But I'm honestly really happy with both of those swims, so I swear I'm not complaining. I'll get back there one of these days!
Then I had the 50 fly, which I think I actually got 4th in, haha, nice!
Then Sarah, Graham, Ron $, Kelly and I headed to Looneys to grab a drink and some food. We caught up, laughed a ton, and wished more Alumni could have joined us. Next year will be ridiculous, I can tell already!
