the meet's getting close
thought I'd begin a thread
plus it's interesting to see
who entered, which events, at what times.

since I'm not going to Nats
I get to wait and see how my zone times hold up

I took a look at these earlier, are there any qualifying times to make these Nationals, and if so, do any of you know where I might find them?

My goal is to make it to nationals next year, but I don't know what times I need to be shooting for...

Thanks much!

Above is the link for the qualifying times for next weeks national meet. You can swim 3 events in a national meet without making the qualifying times.

I loved getting a chance to look at the competition. I just hope that there aren't a bunch of sandbaggers in my age group. As is, I like the looks of my seeding.

Unfortunately it does seem like there is a fair amount of sand bagging and I'm not sure why that is. I try to put down as accurate a time as possible in order to get in an appropriate heat...

I would think that unless there is a big time "sandbagger" your time in the 200 IM will hold up...

what exactly is sandbagging? I'm assuming from the posts it has something to do with putting a slower time than you actually swim down as an entry time?

what would be the benefit of doing that anyway?

You got it ... that way you swim in an earlier heat.

May 17th, 2005, 04:05 PM
sandbagging has several meanings

to enter with a slower time

i think you can sandbag a practice
where you loaf most of the work out then
blast one swim and beat everyone who
worked the whole practice

Ande,

Richard Abrahams is amazing. I wonder how much training he does. He must have been reading your faster faster writings. :)

I noticed under the men's 100 free results a swimmer from the past,...with an infamous achievement.

Is that the Jim Montgomery who was the first man ever under 50 seconds for the LCM 100 meter free? His age would seem about right. It was the '76 Olympiad.

I don't know if SFF has helped richard, He's been swimming fast for years. It's because of who he is and how he trains. He was fast in college, I think he went 21 point something in the 1960's.

Richard has figured out how to correctly train for sprints and he puts in the work, both in the pool and with his strength training.

montgomery punched an impressive 100 at Nats
he wasn't nearly as fast at zones in april.

"Is that the Jim Montgomery who was the first man ever under 50 seconds for the LCM 100 meter free? His age would seem about right. It was the '76 Olympiad"


yes, Val, that was THE Jim Montgomery

I admit it....I'm one the guilty parties of fading out at the end of my 200 (I'm the one that went 1:58.07 on Ande's posted list). I don't think that I went out too hard in the first 100, but I made my push too early in that third 50, and (obviously) fell apart on the last 25.

Definitely could have been swam smarter, but it's a 4 second drop from last month....I'll take it :)

I'm really happy with how I swam at Nationals. Since starting Masters three years ago I've gone to all three SC Nationals and have dropped time every year in every event. I'm not sure how long I can continue to do that, but I'm certainly going to do my best to keep the downward trend going!

Here were my splits in the 200 free:
26.29 54.16 1:22.16 1:50.18

So a 54.16 then a 56.02.

That's fast and well done. I hope you feel a sense of accomplishment.

Congrats! Great swim!

Thanks! My LMSC record is a 1:49.75, so I was shooting for that and just missed it. That's o.k., I need a goal for next year, right?

My legs, in particular, were really burning that last 50 so I'm pretty happy I held on as well as I did.

Jim Montgomery was a fantastic swimmer. That's great that he's still at it. The captain of my high school squad (Bobby Hackett) was on the USA team with Jim, but "threw in the towel" after he graduated from Harvard.

One a side note,... great swimming Kirk. For only three years back that's quite impressive. You must have had a strong 200 free in your younger years. That record is all yours.

Actually, no. Yes, I swam faster than that in college, but I was never able to break 1:50 in high school. I was really a distance swimmer in those days and didn't have enough speed for a good 200 free. I'm pretty happy to swim faster at 35 than in high school and I know I can swim even faster!

BTW, Bobby Hackett was an amazing distance swimmer. I read the book Four Champions, One Gold Medal last year. Great read, especially to hear how those guys trained!

Thanks for the tip on the book. I'll have to pick up a copy. Being a distance swimmer, I'm sure you could appreciate it when a coach says something about a long set of 100's with a one minute interval. Thankfully, that was pretty much for Hackett only.

I see that Brian Goodell is back in the pool again. I'm sure that he's in it for the fun though. After all the mileage these guys put in, it's no wonder that some of them developed an aversion to chlorinated water.

Jim, Bobby, and their other coaches helped me learn to swim. I have nothing but positive things to say about them. I would not be swimming today if it weren't for their program.

In addition to breaking the 100 free record in the 60 - 64 age group by 3 seconds.....Richard also broke the 100 fly record in that age group by 5 seconds!!.....60 years old and he went 54.92 in the 100 fly!!...(and 22.3 in the 50 free....49.? in the 100 free)......I remember seeing the 100 fly race b/c I was waiting behing the blocks to swim my 100 fly......I could barely believe my own eyes when I saw it!!

Newmastersswimmer

p.s. As far as splitting goes......My splitting in Ft. Lauderdale was horrific! ...(for example I went 58.5 followed by 1:08.2 in my 200 fly)......but I am putting all that behind me now and hoping for big improvements over the next year or so??.....I am also planning to make some event changes....so maybe that will add something interesting?

David,

It sounds like a great club to belong to. Nothing beats having an excellent coaching staff. There's a video clip of Jim's "perfect race" on the www.usaswimming.org site. Type his name in under the search section.

The race analysis is very interesting too. A few comments were made about how much faster he could have been using today's starts and turning techniques. He was also wearing the drag type of suit and no goggles.

...and Mollie, that was some very even splitting. Nicely done.
