Swimming = Life

So long course season is finally over…

I had state this weekend and did pretty well. I dropped in almost everything and stayed about the same in the frees (100, 200, 400). I re-got my y-nats cuts in 200 free, 100 fly, 400 IM, and 200 fly so that’s good and got the 200 IM by .01 (but I’ll probably lose that since they get faster every year). Made A finals in 5 events (100 fly, 400 IM, 200 back, 200 IM, 200 fly), got 3 10ths (went in seeded 10th twice and 9th once), 1 5th (200 fly) and 1 6th (400 IM). Made B finals in the rest (200 free, 400 free, 100 free, 100 back). Did exceptionally well in 200 fly (dropped 5 seconds for a 2:28) and 400 IM (dropped 6 seconds for a 4:16; dunno how that happened). Overall, I’m really happy about it. Do you guys have college swimmers at long course state? We do and it’s really annoying bc they win almost everything. So yeah! How’d you all do?

“I had my goggles on, so I was hiding my tears. But Bob was standing on the deck and as soon as I got out of the pool, he was like ‘This is not fair. You were hiding your tears while I was standing by the pool with other coaches, and mine just came streaming down my face.’” —Michael Phelps

some people are born with parents who love and support them and are there for every single thing. some have one parent who bends over backwards to give their kid everything. some have a parent who loves and encourages them, and are lucky enough to have someone walk into their life and be the person that they needed: the coach, the father, the friend.

Here have another flexing picture😑. The only reason I post so many arm pictures is because I have noodle legs and whenever I wear shorts I question whether or not I even lift. 😡 BUT my goal is to get dem #thunderthighs ⚡️eventually. I work my ass off every leg day and the little shits won’t grow. Oh well. It’s good to have #goals. It keeps me motivated👍.
