Margalis Blog March 2016

March was an awesome month! Starting with the Orlando Arena Pro Swim Series. I got a lot of good racing in with 6 prelim swims and 4 finals swims. Scratching out of the 400 free and 400 IM to focus on my other events. Then I got to spend a week at home with my parents training out in the sun! I can’t think of too many things better than training outdoors. Also, got to hit up Clearwater Beach (#1 beach in FL but I may be biased!) a couple times with some friends for some good relaxation.

Since NCAA’s started for Men and Women, the post grads have been training separately for a few weeks now!

(Also, shout out to my awesome teammates!! Very Proud Alum! Women win NCAAs and Men place 5th!! Go DAWGS!!) But now that the college season is finally over it’s back to training long course! I’m very excited!

For Lent, I gave up candy and dessert which is a big challenge for me. My mom sent me an Easter basket filled with all the classic Easter candies which I opened up right away on Sunday morning! Then, my boyfriend brought me 2 doughnuts for breakfast and my favorite candy! I believe a happy swimmer is a fast swimmer and candy makes me happy!!

Next up is Mesa Arena Pro Swim Series April 14-16!
