This past weekend my masters swim team (TYDE Endurance and Aquatics Masters - TEAM) had it's first meet here in North Carolina. Held at an exceptional facility, the Greensboro Aquatic Center, we got a taste of fast water. Masters National Championships will be held at this pool in April 2016 so this was a great chance for us to get accustomed to the facility.
TEAM had about 15 athletes attend and each athlete experienced something great. In viewing the athletes behind the blocks, in the water and then hanging out between events, I was very pleased with everyone. Pleased especially with the focus to step up go at it.
Our mindset was "all in" when we raced. All in means we were focused and ready to fight for that great performance. Many athletes achieved best times.
Every race is a highly valuable experience. In the good races, you need to look at what you did right. In the other races, you look where you can improve. There is NO BAD SWIM!
We have our next meet in January '16 and I am looking forward seeing everyone out there again as we go "all in" and compete.
I am proud of my group!
