Just wanted to let you know that I had a great swim this morning, and I had a much faster swim time that last year!! The results from the two years are:
|35-39 Age Group||Name||Overall Women||Time|
|2005||6 (of 8) Julie H||31 (of 46)||35:39.9|
|2004||19 (of 21) Jule H||68 (of 83)||41:24.7|
So that's 5:45 faster! Woohoo!! :-) Which is about 14% faster (uh, if my math is correct). I can hardly believe it!!
I have to give you a lot of credit!! I haven't really been swimming that much, but I know that working out has helped me lose weight, build strength, and improve awareness of the muscles I need to engage to make my stroke more efficient. To me, shaving almost 6 minutes off my swim time is pretty awesome proof!
Anyway, I'm obviously pretty excited. :-) Just wanted to share the good news with you!*
