Some friends and people on Facebook organized a Christmas swimfest for people around the GSL area to get together and swim. I decided to go early because I wanted to get some more yards in and I knew Gords would be there.
I got there and sure enough, there he was. I got in and warmed up a bit and then after about 400, Gords asked if I wanted to do a set with him. We did 10x100 on the 2 min. I was happy that I held 1:27 pace through the first 9 consistently. The 10th I kept pace with Gords and we hit 1:18. I was cooked after this. I rested a bit then swam some more slow laps as people arrived at 0930. We did some small short sets then some IM sets. I did 50 fly 3 times which actually surprised me a bit. We then did some fast and slow kicking drills. The last thing we did were some relays. I haven't done relays in awhile and it was really fun for me. There were 3 men and about 7 women. We were all having a really good time.
After the swim, there was a water slide I could NOT resist. They turned it on for us then Josh went first and filmed himself all the way down then we all went down right after each other at a quick interval. Probably not the safest but it was fun.
We also all got some GREAT new swim caps with candy canes on them.
When all was done I had swam 2950 yards. Not bad!
