Mimi Willard, 61, is our lone Swymnut at the 2015 USMS Short Course Yards Nationals in San Antonio. She is off to a great start, landing a 5th place in the 1000 free in a 14:42.49. That is a 3 second drop from her swim two weeks ago. New to the 1000 free, Mimi is already showing a rock-solid steadiness as she held sub 1:30s for all the middle 100s. Way to rock it Mimi!
Update 4-24-15 11:15 AM. Mimi swam the 200 Free with a new personal best of 2:39.02 breaking that 2:40 barrier and bettering her time by 2 seconds. She placed 13th our of 22 in a very competitive field. She has 100 back left later today.
Update 4-24-15 4:15 PM. Mimi completed her swimming trifecta with her 100 Backstroke at Nationals. She set another personal best and placed 12th with a time of 1:27.88. Congratulations to Mimi on a very successful Nationals (she could only swim Thursday and Friday at Nationals due to prior obligations). Absolutely terrific results demonstrating that her hard work with Ultra Short Race Pace Training definitely paid off.
