whirlwind


i have not been blogging because i have been on an absolute whirlwind the past 2 weeks with the lcc swimmers. 2nd place finish for our girls team at CIF! 4th for boys. we won 10 out of 21 total events! the coach of the winning athlete is responsible to hand out the medals to the top 6 athletes... lets just say i was up and down all day! the kids are truly inspirational. they swim with heart and a love for racing. i feel honored to have been a part of their high school season this past year. its been truly rewarding to see their success!


all of the hardware.
please read how fast our 100 free styler is... girls!


two all star 500 freestyle boys. the one of the left got a CIF record in 4:28...


coach.


part of the crew- can you believe there are more then this?

the all star boys relay team...


we had our swim banquet on wednesday night so now swim is officially over. thankful because ive felt a bit overwhelmed the past 2 months! but it feels great to have put some closure onto a a very successful season and now change gears.... are you ready...

tomorrow's ironman training itinerary. the 10 hour day:

7:00- 8:15am am swim masters

8:30am- 1:30pm (with some change because of stops) ride with teamIMCDA crew

1:45ishpm- 3pm run off of bike

3:15pm- 3:30pm eat. and eat some more.

3:30-4:30pm lift weights upperbody/core

4:45ish- 5:45pm swim again, easy.


the purpose of the 10-hour day is to mentally and physically prepare myself for being active that long of a time. it would be too much to simulate an actual ironman for recovery purposes. it seems a little crazy but i am looking forward to it. mostly because i have never done this much in a day before (come close to it) but also because i get the whole day to do what i love!

to your health,
C

Congrats on all the awards!

I totally agree with the "mega day" for mental/physical prep. Good luck!

I'm sorry, I was distracted by boy swimmer stomachs. Did you type something else?
