The first swim meet of the season! Hooray! Today began though, at 5:15am when I walked over to cross country bus to give them the muffins I had made. They texted me and said they were fans.
Then I crawled back into bed and ugh slept right through the time I was supposed to run. I am really far in mileage again so I needed to get in a run today. We will see-if it isn’t in the cards it’s not and I’ll try harder next week.
We had our morning “wake-up swim,” for distance swimmers at 9am. Our coach requires anyone swimming the 500/1000 or people who take longer to warmup to come in a few hours before team warm-ups and swim about 2000 yards. This isn’t so bad until away meets when the buss leaves at 6am and we have to swim from 5:00 or even earlier. I always do the same routine and have found it works for me.
I came back and made myself Red Velvet Pancakes because I have pancakes everyday and switching up my routine before a race wouldn’t be good now would it?
I’m pretty impressed by my logic there ha.
The moment you have all been waiting for:
The Swim Meet!
I wish I could somehow flower this up and say that I did really well but that is not the case. I don’t want to sound like a downer and believe me (I have come to the understanding all races are not your best.) However, this was my worst college swim meet to date. I went times slower than my freshman year and I was cognitively not involved in the meet. That is okay I suppose. I wish I had more to say about it, but I would rather not think too much about it. It’s in the past and I can only hope next week will be better.
Aram took me out to Lobster House afterwards since I was clearly upset. I had Princess Lobster with a baked potato. We got stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. I was still in a Debbie Downer Mood so didn’t really take too many photos at dinner last night.
Anywho-Stay tuned for my Halloween Party Blog. I had a blast! Here is a preview of the final costume.
