Hey all, not sure how many people still readthis or whatever, and not sure how many that do actually know me. Names Evan, I graduated I guess 2 years ago now, class of 2004. Just thought I'd do a little boasting, finished up my season here at Santa Cruz and I'm pretty happy.

Started my season at a 5:34 in my 500, finished at a 5:14. 19:40 to a 18:23 in my mile(1650yrds). 2:01 to a 1:56 in my 200. then a 1:10 to a 1:01.7 in my 100 back. Also just wanted to say to the current seniorrs and stuff to keep on swimming! I know a lot of colleges are way fast, but there are plenty out there (like Santa Cruz) that you can fit into nicely!

Hey guys, I wrote this on my LJ also, but I don't think I'm friends with a lot of the freshies from last year and such, so I'll put it here too.

I came to the realization some time ago that when Coach spoke of Ganas, there is no solid definition. The defintion always changes from person to person, what ganas is, how it helps them, etc... So I was wondering what Ganas means for all you?

For me, it is this feeling I get during practice, and my long distance events. When my arms are hurting so bad they feel like their about to fall off, when I barely have enough breath to go on to that next stroke, when I just think I can't finish the set/race, I look for Ganas. It is this feeling that I can't really describe, I got it today and it was like my hair was standing on end in the water, almost a mystical feeling. My body anticipates it almost, since the hair standing on end came before the actual Ganas. It is this explosion within me, I take all the feelings of anger, hate, sorrow, love, care, happiness, I take the knowledge that I have a full team behind me cheering me on, every moment I ever felt any of those feelings, I take what I felt then and just put it into energy. The energy just explodes into my body, its almost like a pain killer. I know my arms hurt, I know my lungs burn, I know I need to rest, but I ignore all the pain, I work harder then I ever had in my life. My body hurting is someone elses body, but me, I am the pure power that is working through the water, striving to reach the goal. I guess thats as close to Ganas as I can ever really put into words.

You're All I Need [08 Mar 2005|04:31pm]

In some new/old news, I did the best butterfly of my life last friday at a 1:13. I held it the entire time and it was a fluid, strong motion that I was proud of. Too bad I didn't make 1:12.

Morning practice is a good thing, people.
You're all welcome to come! well, those on the swim team of course...

We did bungees this morning (come and you'll understand). I was so close!
Edan made it in breaststroke (yes Edan came to morning practice).

Our first official meet is in less than a week!

Nice swim-a-thon, by the way, swimmmers (unless you cheated, shame shame).
Chungah made hers in 30 minutes, so hurrah for Chungers (that's my nick name for her).

So keep swimming!
