Ready. Set. SWIM!

Tyson is swimming for EAT this year, Extreme Aquatic Team.  He swims two nights a week for one hour and that one hour completely exhausts me.  He must swim over 500 meters.  Which for an 8 year old boy is A LOT.  The first time he practiced he could barely make it down and back once.  Now he has become quite good at it.  He is working on his freestyle form, backstroke and breast stroke.  I couldn't be more proud of him.  This is definitely not an easy sport. 

 Waiting to warm up......

 His pal Avery

The warm up consists of 100 jumping jacks, 25 push-ups and something called stream line superman (which looks kinda like a long extended crunch) then they hop into the pool for 100-200 meters of freestyle swim.  THEN they start they start their drills.  And I wonder why Tyson is so hungry all the time.  The jeans I bought him at the beginning of the school year a a little big in the waste now.  He burns some serious calories.  First meet is next week.
