M - 60 min. 2000 pool yds<br>
W - 75 min. 2700 yds.<br>
F - 44 min. 2100 yds/1.2mile. A long swim is not a smart way to help the x-training team here, sorry. A work out with lots of short distances and lots of rests would have yielded me 75 min. Oh well I need to start putting in a long swim each week, just like running.<br><br>

Hmmm, I'm lagging behind. When I get home tonight, I'll try to punch out 30 mins of abs work. Might be difficult depending on what time I get home after my bored, er, um "BOARD" meeting tonight. If it doesn't work out, I have a 1 hour yoga class planned for tomorrow morning, at least, and maybe I'll get there early and do 30 mins abs again!<br><br>
You boys are toast......might as well give up now.<br><br>

well, I actually did do some core/ab work last week... but I didn't post it and now don't even remember what day! <img alt="huh.gif" src=""> So much for record keeping. So... last week is a wash, but I'll do better this week! Here's the place-holder for this week's stuff:<br>
Tally Ho, Ladies! Keep up the good work! <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="">

Standings are updated in the first post. With today, Saturday, and Sunday left in the competition, here are some highlights.<br><br>
The ladies will win on total minutes, but the per-capita contest could go either way.<br><br>
The ladies' crown will probably go to Sans Souci, but choovie or hally could sneak up on her if they didn't have much else to do this weekend. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> If jura had shown up earlier, she would definitely be in the race.<br><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><span style="font-size:small;"><br>
The men's crown will go to Labduck or JJJessee. It's too close to call!<br></span></span>
