Testing out my swimming fitness at a time trial event at the Kiwanis pool
It turned out to be a family affair – with both my son Caleb and me having our first races with a mixture of the Master’s Swim group that I train with and a few of the kids from the West Park Aquatics Club that Caleb attends. It was great fun to do this with Caleb.
I learned to dive off the blocks for the first time and “raced” all in the same day. I swam the 200m freestyle (3:10. 67) and 800m freestyle (13:24.87). Caleb raced the 50m freestyle (38.84) and 100m ( 1:31.70) freestyle. We had fun just experimenting with racing. A good test of our current fitness levels and a place to improve from in the coming months.
