Day Ten

February 10, 2010

The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.
Vince Lombardi

I will have the weekly tally later today



  1. At 4:30am only Cedar Springs was closed so I went to EK and got in my yards. I checked after my swim and nearly every school in Kent and Ottawa Counties are closed today…except Kentwood. Zing!

    3800 today.

  2. 1500m (1640yards) at the SE Y.

  3. Anyone have suggestions for a swim cap that doesn’t cut off the blood to your brain. Mine has been given me headaches…and it’s a L/XL. Weird I know…but just wondering!

    • I wear a “cloth” cap (nylon/spandex), because I cannot wear latex. You should be able to find them at any sporting goods store. They are a little more expensive but I like them.

      • Thanks Amy…I scheduled at trip to Gazelle on Sat with crossed fingers.

  4. 1000 this morning at the MAC.
    I think my hair does not like this challenge.

  5. 1300 at DDH YMCA. I got to share my lane with an exceptionally fast hottie. Yum!

  6. 2000 yards at the DDH YMCA with a lane hog πŸ˜›

    • Whatev

  7. 1200yds @ Kentwood pool. Thanks J.R.!

  8. 1100 today at the DDH Y. Feeling a little tired after day ten- looking forward to the next ten days! Need to get there earlier so I can log more yards.

    • 200 y swim
      200 y kick
      200 y pull
      100 y breast
      6 x 50 y 1:10 intervals
      200 y pull for warm down

      • I guess I did 1200 yards- need to start using a calculator

  9. 1500 yard at HAC. I was able to to the first 500 in 6:44, which is a PR for me. I love February….

    • I love seeing improvement! That is what keeps me doing this crazy challenge πŸ™‚

  10. 2000….and managed to cut off 3 1/2 minutes from my mile time!

  11. 900 yards for today…took it easy, so sore πŸ˜›

    • @ GRCC

  12. Another 1000 at the MAC with a 24:15 time – PR for me.

  13. Did 1000 at the DDH Y this afternoon. The rest of this week should be interesting-I do not know if I will have access to a pool but I am bringing my suit just in case. I still plan on at least running though πŸ™‚

  14. 1600 @ MAC this afternoon.
    Brought the kids with me because it was a snow day.
    Get to swim again in less than 12 hours… hooray!….?

  15. 900 at Calvin again πŸ™‚ Pretty much all with the arms too… Since my goal is a tri this summer I’m trying to work on pulling!

  16. Congrats on ALL the PRs today! Our challenge is working…

    I did 2000 (wohoo!) at DDH after work. Saw Andy there too. I have taken abou 5 seconds off of my 100 time. Sore, itchy, tired…but loving the improvements.

  17. 1750 at the downtown Y

  18. dang you challenge and making me feel guilty if i wanna skip, after riding bike for 18 miles and running 5, i just wanted to come home and watch trashy tv, but i went and swam 1000…there, ya happy now?

    • Nice!

  19. aaarrrgghhh….. completely forgot the pool schedule at DDH tonight. Got 600 in before the whistle blew. I was having a good time too! I’ll call it a rest day! Ha!

  20. 900 at the DDH today, 900 there yesterday, and only 600 on Monday before the swim meet at Forest hills. 😦

    • do you always swim at Forest Hills? It would be nice to know if others in the pool are doing the challenge.

  21. 800 at East Hills. Missed Terence as doing it all by myself was not nearly as much fun

  22. Counting 2 hours of water polo practice as swimming today. I’ll just say 1000 yards as I didn’t keep track.

  23. 1600 yards at the DDHY after work

  24. 950 today at the usual watering hole. I am always a day behind entering it in for some reason. Gotta get better at that.

  25. So am I the only one that did NOT get a swim in 😦 Will have to double up tomorrow….

  26. A quick 900 at the Mac because my schedule was tight and I spent too much time chatting in the locker room. Typical.

  27. 900 yards, keep forgetting to post the day of…

  28. 1,850 meters at SE Y

  29. 1500 yards
