Guinea Pig’s First Swim Meet

October 16th, 2008 · No Comments ·


I finally swam my first meet, not without embarrassing myself of course, last Saturday in New York City. I was happy that I broke my personal records in 50, 100, and 200 meters.

My time (all in freestyle):

50 meters: 44 seconds
100 meters: 1:38:15
200 meters: 3:56:15

The embarassing moment came when I lost count of the laps that I had swum in 200-meter freestyle; I stopped after 100 meters and fell behind immediately. But I was lucky not to have been disqualified because my feet did not touch the ground. I was also surprised that I finished the race under 4 minutes, which was my registered time.

With one swim meet under my belt, I look forward to make up a new training routine and get ready for the next meet.
