Training Camp. Day 11. Workout 18
Our final workout of the 2013 Bates Training Camp was a dual meet against Middlebury. Lots of good things at this meet occurred - mainly the fact that the team is getting better each meet. Better at racing for sure... but also better at putting together smart swims and of course faster times.
Case in point the women's 400 medley relay was over three seconds faster than our previous season best. The men's was over five. And another great sign was a 400 free relay that was 3 seconds faster than last year at this time.
Other good takeaways:
|Afternoon naps where ever you can get them!|
2) They swam tough, and didn't back down on any close races or final lengths. More touch outs went our way than we lost. I love that.
3) Although tired and beat up, the team remained in great spirits and truly enjoyed watching their teammates have in-season bests after such a tough week. Lots of very impressive swims and fast times.
4) Our divers continue to show what hard work, dedication, and the best diving coach around can do you for you!
5) Over 60 season best times were swam this weekend, and we know that here at Bates we save our best swimming for the final weekend of the season. This is a very good sign for things to come.
