I managed 40 laps under 20 minutes! Total did 78 laps: 40 freestyle, 10 breast, 10 backstroke, 2 breast, 10 free timed at 4:45, 2 breast, 4 free timed at 1:45. I had little bit more time today, so decided to improve my flip turns. Thought about Steve‘s stress on streamline – when he demo that on the deck as if he could reach the ceiling, :). Janet Evans is remembered for her long unconventional strokes and inexhaustible cardiorespiratory reserves – today I tried to stay under the water longer after the turns. Steve used to pound on me: getting streamlined and should at least get pass the solid blue divider. I always take a breath almost right after turning – lazy, I suppose. The pool was empty. Not sure what accelerated my timing today, was the streamlining and staying in the water longer did the trick? And hopefully I can keep doing it.
Marge is a cute lady who comes to the pool every day, does 72 laps in about hour or so. So I nick named her Ms. Mile – 72 laps equals to a mile. She must be in her 80s, over sized thick glasses make her eyes enormous out of proportion. Her limps are all bones and skins. There is a Robert. At first, I thought they’re a couple. The first time I ran into Robert by the entrance, I was starlet at how tall he’s, well over 6′. Guess in the water semi naked, we all look different. Thank god we have cloth to cover.
