A Great Swim

OH MY....THIS IS MY 100th POST!!!
This is a call for a celebration or at least a brag about my favorite someone

Today I took the day off of work to time at an all day meet (20 schools total). I was able to hang out with another mom from breakfast time to dinner time. The meet was pretty enjoyable and made for some good conversation along the way.

I was SOOOO happy with how Nathan swam. He swam like he ended the season last year and like where he should have been all along this year. Well...except for his 200 free. He totally hates this event and each week that coach has him swim this....the slower he goes. I am curious to see who will lose this battle. Nate-Coach. Coach-Nate????

However, when it came to his 500 free, he looked beautiful. His start was smooth and Nathan was able to set  a nice pace. I must admit that I was a bit nervous as I was convinced that he would tire himself out. But no....he kept it going....and swam a 6:39.40. It might  seem slow, however, this season, he has been swimming it over 7min. So regardless of the lack of motivation he has or the weight gain that occurred over summer.....Nathan had a great swim. And I hope that it will continue for the rest of the season.
