Ooops - I missed a day!
So, did you enjoy our guest speaker?! I know myself and the other coaches were thoroughly impressed and inspired by Missy's advice. As someone who has reached the highest level in swimming, she highlighted some of the best parts of our sport aside from winning too. I thought she gave some great suggestions as far as ways to help us get through the difficulties of our current situation, and ways to overcome obstacles in the pool as well! The biggest takeaway for me, however, was that being a good swimmer was important, but that being a good person and teammate in life was more important to her. I know that is something swimming taught me in my experience, and it was exciting to hear that an olympian come to the same reaction and outcome. If you get a chance to start thinking about some of the homework she gave you - and you feel like sharing it - I will be happy to be your accountability partner or goal buddy! Write down your thoughts and feel free to send me an email whenever.
Today we've got the Talent show on tap and then a fun surprise at the end of dryland. You will need a LIAC Cap - preferably a white one - and goggles... so dig them out from the bottom of your bag or closet and I will see you later!
