FRICKIN MERMAID

Guess who is doing FLIP TURNS?

Sure they don't do jack crap for me on an open water swim, but they sure do look sweet in the pool.

And I am now able to swim 1200+ yds in about 40 minutes. That's with drills, rest breaks, etc. But hey, I'm improving!!!!!

Yay! I am still working on my flip turns but I am getting closer to adding them to my workouts everyday!

LOL. I'm sure you looked great....I'd look like a beached whale :)

I've been thinking of adding swimming into my routine a couple times per week. . . but I'm not/nor have I ever been good at it.

Excited for your tri?

Ms Mae, there is no way I would be at all succesful with this swimming stuff without my masters swim class. It has been a lifesaver.

Christi, I didn't start putting them in until the last half of yesterday's workout, but I managed to throw in a good chunk of them in my 50s. And no water up my nose! I am going to start folding them in all the time now. With each one, it gets a bit more fluid!!!! We will be flip turners together!!!!

Oooh, jealous! I can't do those! I've wanted to ever since my friends Amy and Tricia were on the swim team and during our "swimming" unit in gym they kept doing them but I didn't get it... wah :( Ha ha! Nice endurance, too... wasn't it just a few weeks ago you hadn't gone 1000 yards without stopping? You rock!

Oh no. Still not close to 1000 yards without stopping!! I def have to take breaks, etc. But I can do 50s in drills now :p
