Well, I've done it again. I must be the worst person in the world when it comes to keeping a blog up to date. This year's YMCA State Championship was a few weeks ago, from March 17 to March 19, at Ithaca College. I had been in a slump all this past swimming season (I think because I didn't train all last summer!), but I had hoped that I could get out of that slump at States. No luck, unfortunately. I managed to improve my PR for the 100 free a tiny bit. But, my times for the 100 fly and 50 free weren't even as good as at the 2016 Championships. Live and learn, I guess. This year, I have resolved to train harder than ever and, of course, no summer vacation --- at least as far as swimming goes!
