Today was the last day of the CBAT orange vs. black competition. We each did a 200 I.M. and a 25 in an all-team relay. There was also two "make-up" backstroke heats. The score went back and forth, but I am happy to report that the black team (my team) won overall by only one point! Afterward, we had a great lunch and some fun conversation. Thanks to the CBATS for inviting me to participate in your event. It was a great way to finish off my string of 39 workouts.
Get psyched for tomorrow--the final swim! I am going to attempt to do 40 50's beginning on the 1:15 and ending on the :40. There will be lots of alternatives for those who want to participate but do not want to do those intervals. Come one come all!

During the middle of my workout today I passed the 40 mile mark! Whoopie!! Even though I am a little ahead of schedule, I still plan on swimming at least a mile the last two days. If all goes as planned, I should make 43 miles by the end of the last swim on Saturday. I am happy to have accomplished my goal, but am also a little nostalgic. My body is ready for a rest, though. (:

Since today was my actual birthday, I was joined by Steve, Julie, Gayle, Elizabeth, and Nathan for a fun birthday set. We swam in the shallow end and did 40 30's on the :40. It was a really fun way to bid farewell to the 30's and say hello to the 40's. Thanks to all of you for joining me and making my birthday set memorable!

For today's workout, I joined the CBATS on campus for the first of a three day orange vs. black "swim meet". Each one of us swam a 100 fly and a 100 back for time and then the scores were tallied based upon our times. On Wednesday, we will see whether the orange or black team is ahead.
Since tomorrow is my actual birthday, today was the last swim of my 30's! Tomorrow I'll see what this 40-year-old can do. (:

Today I swam "with" two long-time high school friends, Liz and Erich, who live in California. We all got into our respective pools at the designated time and thought of each other swimming 600 miles away.
During my workout, Gayle surprised me by getting into the water and taking some great underwater photos and video--a few examples are here.
Thanks Gayle for taking the photos and thanks Liz and Erich for swimming "with" me!
