Of COURSE it’s going to be LONG

Tomorrow night starts our first long course meet of the season. This will be Sophie’s first official meet as a 9-10. It will also be her first long course meet. Sarah too! She has always managed to have a broken body part during long course season. I’m sending her to school in bubble wrap tomorrow. I just put on my logistics coordinator hat and our weekend looks a little something like this:

Grace Friday night. Warm ups 345

Saturday
Session 1 Grace – Kelly
Warm ups 6 am
Session 2 Sarah – Chris
Warm ups 1200
Kelly will bring Sophie and take Sarah home
Session 3 Sophie – Chris
Warm ups 450

Sunday
Session 1 Grace – Chris
Warm ups 6 am
Session 2 Sarah – Kelly
Warm ups 1200
Chris will bring Sophie and take Sarah home
Session 3 Sophie – Kelly
Warm ups 450

We will be done around 730 PM all three nights. Thankfully Sunday is Cinco de Mayo and a margarita will be required when this is over.

Lots of new goals set – hopefully goals to be broken. It’s going to be a long and crazy ride from here on in. These crazy weekends are worth it. We signed on for this. We couldn’t wait for this. Good luck girls.

  1. Hello,

    You write an amazing swimming blog from a parents perspective. Yesterday’s ” You don’t have Internet” was one of your best. Good luck to your girls too!

  2. We have families with multiple swimmers crossing age groups one with 4 I think I just don’t know how they do it sometimes. I get wiped out from just one session with one swimmer. I always wanted my younger daughter to swim with her big sis, but she would not have it at all. In the end I am happy about that especially on meet weekends. Two weeks until our first meet, but 3 in four weekends will be tough. Good luck to everyone.
