I'm planning to sign up for the Big Sky State Games swim meet in a few weeks. It's the one meet of the year where quite a few adults actually swim (although technically I think they could swim at most Montana meets). But every year when I see the grown-ups doing it I get jealous and nostalgic, so this year I'm 90 percent definitely going to do it, too.
I've trained…um, twice? In the past three months? And each time it really hurt? So, you know, totally ready.
But my other purpose is that I think swimming against Mik will be fun (for both of us)—as long as he can actually beat me in most of the events, obviously. So last time I was at the gym, I timed myself for a 200 IM and did it in 3:18 (short course, wall start, after yoga class, couldn't feel my arms at the end). I just looked up Mik's time, and it's 3:23 (long course, pre-Paleo). My money is on him, but it sounds like a pretty decent match-up!
