Well did my 50 br. Went crappy. No faster than 2 months ago. Best part. We get on blocks. Wait for set... Instead the beeeeep goes. So we re all like wtf. Well ends up staring thing is messed up. Wait around for bat 5 minutes. Finally fix it. And have to just yell take ur marks. Then the starting machine would work as usual. Needless to say my start was horrible. Under waters were good. But sucked I did as slow as before. 37.xx

Shake it off! Tomorrow is another day!

Story: USMS SCY nationals, Atlanta, 2010. Men's 100 breast, some heat, swimmers on the blocks. Something went haywire with the computer & they called the swimmers down. Thence ensued a delay of over half an hour!!! While the swimmers understood that you need a working computer to run the meet, they were understandably pretty annoyed that such a thing should happen right before their focus event. They were on the blocks, fer gosh sakes!

Stuff happens! Shake it off! Tomorrow is another day!

Nice Job this past weekend! I did improve my 200 back and 100 free times, which was good. Our team placed 6th, not bad for only having 15 swimmers on our team. Did you happen to see the 100 breast final? My teammate swam a 56.73 and broke ILMSA record for his age group, also broke the 200 breast record with a 2:05.5 Good to see you again....Keep up the swimming and your times will only improve!

Hey thanks! I did see the 100 br. I was talking w Brian about it... guess the guy was at the Trials or something... dude was flying.
Nice work by your team. That's awesome with such limited swimmers! Maybe next year I'll join your team just so you have some more swimmers! :) I mean I assume once I drop 40 lbs and get to 210 I'll be afew seconds faster! Don't know if you saw the 100 IM but I almost drowned... I was cashed out coming into the FR portion... everyone in my heet finished about 8-0 seconds ahead of me! WOO HOO!
