Two days down, one more to go. I am swimming well for me. I have only one small selfish complaint which will come later. I entered the same events as last year with the times from last year. I have my splits but left them in my truck and am too lazy to go get them.

200 Breast (25 min later)

Long glide with little effort. I'm sorry, but this is just a silly event. I am sure it is a difficult event if you swim it hard and correctly. Not me.
Mens 200 FR (40 min later)
-I actually anchored this one butdon't know what i went yet.
Here comes my complaint. Ususally the take a quick break after the Relays. I was still in the pool from the relay when the first whistle was blown for the my heat to swim. REALLY?? I was so frusrated that I just floated through it. I was looking forward to this one.
Entered w/6:36.90 Went a mid 6:38
I really have no reason to complain. I swam well and I was the one that signed upnfor this mess. I just was expecting a small break.
Couple of beers √
