Goal: under 23.0 in the 50y free, under 50.0 in the 100y free. Ended up 22.3 and 48.9 respectively. Goal met :banana:

I swim 6000m per week pretty consistently.

Attended state

Did not attend nats.

How many strokes do you take per 25 yards on your 50 and 100? How tall are you and does that help you in your sprints? Just curious. Thank you.

Allen good times

6000/ week is a good swim weekly.

From oct to end of April , I swam 332,200 yards in practice, did not add in swims in meets!

No doubt being 6'2" helps but its probably more my 6'8" armspan :) I take around 13 strokes on the first 25 of a 50y free, 16-17 on the way back. In the 100y its about 10-11 on the first length, then 14-16 on the other 3 lengths. I never really count, i had to go look at video to come up with this answer for you.

This is kinda going off topic though, so if you have further q's i'd be happy to answer them via pm.

Let's see, about 9 out of 10 times I got in the water for competition, I lowered my times in all events - backstroke, long distance free and 400 IM.

I swim about 12,000 per week (roughly 3000-4000 for 3 week days and 4000-5000 on Saturday.

I didn't swim in my state meet since it's a 4 hour drive away nor did I swim at Nationals. I swam at Zones and had a great meet.

Definitely!

In answer to the original question, no, I did not. The only good thing about my short course season is it's now over. I was behind my GTD yardage pace. I swam at both my state (actually Zone meet here) and Nationals, albeit poorly at both.

You forgot to answer your own questions :)

I was a little slower than I wanted in the fall/early winter, when I trained heavily. My training was pretty inconsistent in late Dec up through just recently. About 5k per day, 3 days a week. I've been in consistently the past several weeks though. Pending any final adjustments, it appears I made AA in the SCY season and that was one of my goals.

Did not go to our state meet or USMS Nationals.
