See Fox Swim...

First swim practice was this morning! I LOVED it...there were about 50 swimmers in 6 lanes and everyone was excited! The 4:45 wake up call wasnt nearly as bad as I expected and I made the 5:30 practice on time! Off to a great start. The first 30 minutes was dedicated to rules, lane etiquette, and clarifcation on drills and lesson plans.

By the time we hit the water I was excited and all the anxiety about practice were gone. It has been well over 10 years since I swam competitively and so I started in lane 3 just to make sure I didnt bite off more than I could chew. By the end of warm ups one of the coaches had moved me up to lane 5! It actually felt good to think that i was doing alright...however I'm expecting that they will move me back down once practices get harder and they expect me to turn on the heat!

Yesterday I ran for 35 minutes for my first day of training which was nice...even pushed a few hills to make the most of it...and tomorrow is a day off. Which should be nice! More to come!

You go girl!!!

I'm certain that the 5:30 practices are a killer for you but I believe you will stay in lane 5 and move up because you can do anything you want to do, especailly if you're motivated.

I look forward to following your progress.

Love, Dad
