Million Metre Challenge


An article has been posted on the Masters Swimming Canada page about their current promotion, the Million Metre Challenge. Its an inter club contest where members log their swimming workouts and the club with the most (aiming for a million) wins. Sudbury Laurentian Masters are currently in the lead, despite the size of our club and population base. The article can be found here

Kate's Sudbury visit


This past weekend Kate made the trek up to the great white north. We spent the majority of the time working on Christmas gifts and the trip was topped off with a visit to the big nickel.

Christmas tree


The Christmas tree is up. This year I got the Christmas tree from Home Depot (because apparently you're not supposed to go into the bush and cut your own). Anyway, its a little smaller, but looks very nice none the less.

Masters mini meet


Last Thursday (December 1st) the Sudbury Laurentian Masters Swim Club had a mini-meet and pot luck dinner in place of the usual Thursday night practice.

Since its early in the year, all the events were either 50 or 100m. I did 50m and 100m freestyle and two 20m free relays. Since it was in our normal practice time we only had the shallow end, and couldn do dives for the start. This means the times would be a bit slower, however only a second or two.

50m freestyle: 33.88
100m freestyle: 1:14.10
4x200m free relay #1: 2:49.44 (total, don't have my 50m split)
4x200m free relay #2: 2:25.40 (total, don't have my 50m split)

I don't have any pictures, but if I come across any I'll post them.
