Swimming Success – 200,000 yards complete

Swimming 1 Comment »

Back in late August, when I moved back to college, I started swimming again.  At the time, I set a goal of swimming 100,000 yards before the end of the year.  About half-way through the semester, I hit 100,000 yards and knew I had to set a new goal to push towards.  Naturally, I just doubled my previous goal.

This morning, I finally crossed the 200,000 yard stretch at my brother’s high school swim practice.  The actual total is 202,150 yards, or about 114.86 miles.  Not too shabby for a guy who hasn’t swam since first semester of his sophomore year.  The 10,000 yard workout on Wednesday morning was an eye opener… although it wasn’t until Thursday morning that I knew why.  I basically felt like I got hit by a train when I woke up (nothing 2 ibuprofen couldn’t fix).

What does the future hold?  Perhaps some more swimming and swim meets before long.

Merry Christmas!

On Thursday night, my high school held our first ever alumni swim meet. I have been looking forward to this meet since I found out about it in November.
