Just curious, but is anyone else out there upset that the 800 and 1500 are on the same day at LCM nationals and that you can only swim one of the events? Not that I would swim both on the same day and think I could recover to swim well the rest of the weekend but I would like to be able to swim both events rested and tapered at National Championships. Mission Viejo's format in 2005 accomodated both races. Why can't other hosts do the same?:shakeshead:

I thought the same thing when I saw the event order. very strange to have both events back to back.

I am going to do the 1500. If I could do both I would. At zones I did the 800 free and the 1500 free later. There is plenty of recovery time at a meet like nationals.

They only put the 800 and the 1500 on different days if they have a 5-day meet. If they have a 4-day meet, the distance events are on the same day.
