The latest installment in Cody Miller‘s vlog sheds some light on a scenario unique to professional groups training alongside a collegiate program: what does life look like for the pros when the college team rests?
Much of Miller’s latest vlog is just he and fellow pro Annie Lazor in an empty pool. That’s because Miller says the Indiana college team is tapering for a home invite that took place at the end of last week. That’s one of the interesting tidbits from the vlog – though the definition of “taper” isn’t exactly uniform across programs and could mean anything from short rest to a full rest and shave.
World record-holder Lilly King, part of the Indiana college program, makes a guest appearance as she often does on these vlogs. King notes that this will be the first time she’s suited up for a mid-season invite in her four years at IU.
The Miller-King dynamic is always one of the more fun parts of these vlogs, and they have a pretty funny playful exchange about King’s goggle choices about seven minutes into the vlog.
Later in the video, Miller chats with another pro, Margo Geer, whom Miller has nicknamed “the crowd favorite” and “MarGOAT” – nicknames that will certainly catch on with the SwimSwam comment section.
More technically-interested fans will find a handful of interesting sets Miller takes on, including an 800 breaststroke pull for time and a couple of power sets hooked up to weight pullies. He also touches on some real-life responsibilities, like raking leaves – a chore Miller appears to detest more than the 800 pull for time.
