The Masters

Last night at 8:30 p.m. I went to Masters Swim at my YMCA.

This was my workout for my first masters swim:

1h 00m
2600.00 yards
02m 19s /100 yards

Warm-up: 650 yds.

Main Set:
8x25 on 30" free
4x25 on 35" mix
8x25 on 30" free
4x25 on 35" mix
8x25 on 30" free
4x25 on 35" mix
Do above twice

Cool Down: 300 yds

If you do the math you will see that my total yardage didn't quite make it to what it should have been, BUT I feel as though I held my own. I was in the second slowest lane, and definitely kept up with everyone in my lane.

I have a Masters degree in flute performance. I guess, technically, it means I have a mastery of performing the flute. I think I still have a ways to go before I master the instrument, if that is even possible.

So if I go to a Masters Swim does that make me a master of swimming?

One can only hope...


  1. I'd like to know the answer to that question, too! :) Way to keep up in that swim. Have a great night!

  2. Amazing swim workout-what is the kick off for the official Musselman training? You will be ready!
    Have a wonderful day.


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
