A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.

  1. 1150 at NRMS this morning

  2. 1000 at Visser this afternoon! Finally got a swim cap, maybe my hair will return to normal soon.

  3. 1100 at GRCC this AM. 10 more days to go!

    500 warm up
    100 kick

    4x 100’s on the 2:00

  4. 2050 @ HAC.

  5. I actually broke out of my trend and did 1000yds today. After 18 straight days I see improvement in my stroke and conditioning, but wow do I have a long way to go.

  6. 10×100 @ DDH y @2:30

  7. I did the opp. of what Dave did, I went down and only did 900 at the Visser this morning.

    I’m fighting something in my lungs. Skipped the run last Saturday and Monday night, last night I cut the run from 5 to 3 because I just can’t get a good breath.
    It’s slowing me down in the pool too but damn it, it’s not going to stop me from finishing this thing.

  8. 1000 at EGR with Rudy again – man I like that guy. =)

    Amy: I have been doing something a little weird, but it is the first year my hair is NOT straw. I’ve been wetting my hair down before the swim, and then spraying it with a mix of palm kernel oil, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E (oil). Straight oil. Then I swim. I make sure to shampoo and condition right after I get out of the pool (not wait until I get home). My hair is not in any kind of distress this year. It is not oily or greasy either. I highly recommend.

  9. P.S. I love the quote for today Rudy. =) It’s inspiring and hopeful. Thanks for finding and posting those.

  10. 1450 yards in EGR with my lovely bride.

  11. 1200 yards at DDHY. I did it in the 20 yard pool so more flip turns and pushing of walls. I sprained my wrist playing water polo last weekend so i’m doing minimal easy yards till it feels better.

  12. 3500k Stoney Creek HS

  13. 1600 yards @ EGR 5:30 am
    The lifeguards there now know me by sight.
    I feel so cool!

  14. 1500 yards last night at the DDHY

  15. We had water polo practice last night. I did a 300 yards warm up and then we basically scrimaged all night… I would say I swam 1200 at the absolute minimum.
