Falcon Invite and Finals

Last weekend was our mid-season taper meet at the University of Minnesota. Probably one of the fastest pools in the nation. Friday I swam the 500 Free to a season best of 5:19 and a season best in the 100 Free on a relay of 52.01. Saturday was a very tiring day as I had to swim about 2600 yards race, almost 1000 more then any other guy. I had the 400 IM (x2) and the 1650. In the IM I placed 10th with a time of 4:42 in finals. The mile was a nice 12th place finish in a time of 18:19. I am stoked for the end of the year, I am going so much faster at this time then at any other time last year. Should be a kick ass taper and final meet in CR at Liberal Arts.

Finals are coming up next week, only 2 finals and 1 of them is an online final in Stress Management. Sweet. Human Physiology is my hardest class and is the other final I have to take. Should be interesting as it covers pulmonary respiration, GI system and reproductive systems.

After that, next Friday the 19th we leave for Florida, for 9 days on the beach of long course ass kicking. Won't be as warm as Hawaii freshman year, but hey it still beats a wind chill of -10 at 5:30 in the morning.

Stranger....Who me?

Finally taking the time to write in this again.

Swim season has been kicking my butt, coach testing our really skill ability this year, and it is showing as we are dominating everyone. Have our first real test this weekend at the University of Minnesota.

I have been swimming distance stuff like usual (500,1000,1650) and IM (200 and 400). Time have been great, almost at lifetime bests this early in the year is only gonna bode well when I shave and taper.

I am getting anxious to be back on the bike again. Have mtn. biked a couple times, but I wish I could have done cross this fall. Looks like a pretty good turnout and results list from Iowa riders at Jinglecross. What a day on Rock 2, I saw some videos.
Props to anyone who did that day!

Hopefully Ill write in this thing more to update about times/season goals and such. We are going to Florida (Ft. Lauderdale) for our bi-annual training trip in 15 days. Woo HOOO! 10 Days of intense two a days.

Have a good off season!
