    PM LCM @ UALR "Mary Grace Tucker Memorial Invitational Day #1"

    400 swim
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: k/dr
    even: dr/sw
    3x100 @ 1:30 @ 800 PACE
    100 EZ

    800 FR - 9:31.49 (1:05.89/1:10.79/1:11.39/1:12.32/1:11.80/1:12.55/1:13.90/1:12.85) - It was a little worrisome when I watched the boys on my left and right go taking off over the first 100 meters. I told myself to put some blinders on and just did my own thing, and when I flipped at the 350, I finally saw them...passing the flags going into the wall while I was going the other way! I was told I looked strong through the whole race. I was happy with an opening 400 of 4:40.39, I just wish I could have been back a little faster than 4:51.1. On the other hand, both those splits are faster than I went I have been all season in the 400, so that bodes well for Sunday's event!

    I had two 500 meter warm ups during the course of the meet and a 400 warm down at the end as well.

    Total: 3200

    SHOUT OUT: Doug Martin, who wasn’t too out of breath after his 50 FR to come time for me in the 800.

    AM LCM @ UALR "Spring Splash Day #3"

    400 swim (every 3rd 50 BK)
    8x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: k/dr
    even: dr/sw
    8x50 @ :15 rest V.S.
    25 DIVE FAST + 75 EZ

    200 FR - 2:17.90 (1:05.34/1:12.56) - Not exactly thrilled with this time, but I was out late with the wife at a Cinco De Mayo party last night and so waking up early for a swim meet was a struggle. I think I also felt some effects by this point in the weekend from not being able to warm down after any events (particularly after the 400 FR yesterday).

    AM LCM @ UALR "Spring Splash Day #2"

    400 swim
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: kick/dr
    even: dr/bld
    3x100 @ 1:30 D1-3 (1:19, 1:16, 1:13)
    150 EZ

    100 FR - 1:02.43 (no splits, although someone told me I flipped at around :31, so I may have even split it)

    **At this point I jumped out and whisked my daughter off to a friend's birthday party. I rushed back to the meet 2 hours later with 5 minutes to spare before the 400**

    400 FR - 4:52.xx (no splits at time of writing, and I can't remember the exact time)

    Total: 1650

    I felt short on both races, but my kick felt great for the last 30 meters of the 100. The 400 is 4 seconds faster than I was at this meet last year (the last time I raced the 400). All in all, not bad considering no warm down after the 100 and no warm up before the 400!
