Grace swam 400 free tonight. It is the first long course meet of the season, this particular pool has short and long course options.
As I am every year, I was shocked by how long the pool was. Grace is an old pro at Long Course, she is better at it than she is short course. I’m getting so old that when I was timing grace tonight she literally went out of my line of site before hitting the wall at the other end.
My first and only thought when I saw the pool? Holy Shit. Sophie is going to freak out. I’m not convinced she will survive warm ups let alone 200 free and 50 fly tomorrow. I think I was drunk when I thought my 9 year old swimming LC was a great idea.
Sarah will be fine. She would rather die trying than admit defeat. Sophie may need therapy Monday morning. Maybe she won’t notice how long it is. Maybe her eyes are 43 too.
