    PM SCY @ Hendrix College "Bob Courtway Invitational Day 2"

    600 swim eery 4th 25 scull w/ SNKL

    500 FR - 27.75/30.77 [58.52] 31.36/31.94 [1:03.30] 32.46/32.71 [1:05.17] 32.83/33.31 [1:06.14] 33.55/32.55 [1:06.10] (5:19.23)

    So I got to the meet late and expected it to be running behind schedule. Instead they were 10 minutes ahead of schedule. Then the gutter swallowed my brand new cap! I had to scramble to find one before my race. I had no time to get a proper warm up in so it was really hard to get going.

    Not very aggressive going out. Definitely felt my catch slip big on the last 50 yards. Does make me excited to get some serious SCY FL training in this fall!

    SHOUT OUT: Trip. This was his "threshold" set. I was merely the rabbit for him to chase. A couple weeks ago he said he was no faster than 2:43 and on the last couple was barely under 2:50. This week: 2:38, then 4 2:39s, another 2:38, and then 2:35. The man brought the hammer down today. Since I am sure he will read this, Trip, know that it is far more rewarding to me to see YOU (and any other training partner) have a great set, than it is for me to have a great set. Thanks for making my day.
