More swimming!

Oldest peep swam the 500 yard freestyle this past weekend. That is 20 laps of 25 yards. She was very nervous and did not think she would make it all the way to the end. Her coach assured her that she swims way more than that at every practice.

She stayed pretty steady the whole way until the last 25. She realized she still had some power left in her legs and she kicked hard!

She came in 2nd place with a time of 7:01. She is swimming this same event this coming weekend and she hopes to improve that time now that she knows her arms won't fall off.
