|Laying on the hot pavement after swimming doesn't sound good to me, but these kids seem to love it. Apparently, it feels great. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.|
Evan had a fantastic meet. The progress he's made in 21 months of consistent swimming (3 times per week) is simply incredible.
See for yourself!
THEN: 9/26/09-25 yard Freestyle... 31.93 seconds... 4th out of 4 (not to mention that he actually got DQ'd from 3 out of 4 events for various infractions: doing wrong stroke in event, doing butterfly arms with breaststroke kick, etc. HA!!!)
NOW: 6/18/11-25 yard Freestyle...17.46 seconds....1st Place!
It was also a day of PRs in his other strokes:
25 Butterfly-19.30 seconds (old PR-35.35)... 1st Place
25 Breast-23.09 seconds (old PR-31.66)... 1st Place
25 Back-23.00 seconds (old PR-25.25)... 2nd Place
We're so proud (even Colin is cheering in the most recent video!), and we love seeing Evan's enthusiasm grow for the sport. He told me that he got up on the blocks before his events and told himself, "Evan, you can do this."
How awesome is that? Positive self-talk in a 7-year old.
Big things coming from this little guy...
