Today, we had our monthly time challenge. Time challenges allow the swimmers to basically race against their personal best time in a certain event multiple times in a row. The best part about today's challenges...every swimmer that participated created new personal bests from their previous practice swims!

Today, we raced 4 x 50 Free, 4 x 50 Choice, and 4 x 100 Choice. The choice swims allow the swimmers to choose one stroke to concentrate on for that set to see how much they can improve over the course of their 4 swims. And the best part is, if you swam one stroke in your first choice set, you have to pick a different stroke for your second set! I think this is the best part because they get the opportunity to improve a stroke they wouldn't normally choose...I think some swimmers would disagree but I think I'm right =) 

Way to go Emily K., Natalie, Hannah, Nick, Avery and Ali! Coach Julie and I loved your effort and can't wait to see you beat today's times at the next time challenge!
