Whooda Thunk?

Things I never thought I'd say or do in the pool:

1. Just 2000 yards, today

2. I'm just swimming too fast

3. Find myself swimming SO slowly I focused on form issues, only to find the minor changes were making me go faster (which was already a problem, see 2)

4. Talking with other swimmers because 20 seconds rest interval is just TOO long

And now for something completely different...

Whole lotta love in those pics! Is swimming too fast really a problem? I know, training for an ironman...but fast is fun sometimes. :-)

Congrats, Iron Pol.

I need to get myself back in the pool. I miss the chlorine.

Pol, all the pix are great -- but the one of B-Boy and Grandpa B with the footprints is positively poetic.

Talking between repeats is good ...

Wha?! I was sooooo close to meeting RA Royalty! I live in VA Beach now. Glad the Pol clan had a great trip.

It's taken me 3 years of masters classes to be able to say some of those things. Feels good, doesn't it?

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the positive comments and the compliments about our children. We think they're wonderful, though we have a bit of bias.

Wendy, I agree with your take on the picture of B-Boy and his grandpa. You put it exactly how I was trying to say it. I see it as a picture that will cause a lot of remiscence in they future.

Great photos- would frame the one of b-boy and g'pa! (For g'pa and b-boy!)
Congrats on being such a sharkie in the pool!
Talking during rest times? Sweet!

Like the changes you've made to your site. You are a fish, man...
..I think your boy and mine must be the same age....cute, cute babies!

Beautiful babies!

Talking during rest intervals is a good feeling. :) Until the coach yells at you. hehe
