    Water temp was probably 85 today due to the hot weather and sun we have had here in Cincinnati the last few days. I felt very lethargic and was unable to get “warmed up” (I was plenty WARM (or hot) by the time I finished the first 300). The dive fast stuff wasn’t very good. I’m finally getting run down from the grind over the past 10 days.

    Somewhere in the middle of that second kick set I started swimming easy. The lifeguards over the weekend did not check and record the chemicals for the pool, and waited until this afternoon to finally call maintenance to take a look at the water. 45 minutes before we got in the water, they had dumped loads of chlorine into the pool effectively shocking it because the Cl was too low. The air quality once we all got kicking was just awful. I decided to bail after the second kick set. I was coughing so bad it was triggering my gag reflex. I doubt the club team stayed in much longer after I got out. It was terrible. What a waste of a practice!

    AM LCM w/ BASH @ M.E. Lyons YNCA “Cuda Classic Day #2”

    Groin still sore today, but still decided to wake up early and get some more racing in.

    400 FR - 4:54.03 (32.7/36.4/36.6/37.2/37.3/37.6/37.9/38.0) - Opening 100 felt great, and I started to feel like I was getting from 3rd gear into 4th gear on the second 100. However then the piano started to fall on my back. I definitely felt labored on the last 150. A combination I am sure of still being out of shape and also being exhausted from last week’s training.

    Total: ~1800

    Four more days of “training camp,” and then I’ll take a rest day on Friday when I drive home.

    AM LCM w/ BASH @ M.E. Lyons YMCA “Cuda Classic Day #1”

    Had a good warm up at this meet and was really looking forward to seeing how I raced after a week of heavy training. However, while warming up for the 100 BR, I felt my groin start to go. Bummer. Had to scratch the event. Really thought I had done a good job with strengthening and conditioning my hip adductors and abductors, but it appears I need to work harder at this.

    200 FR - 2:17.05 (31.5/34.5/35.6/35.7) - Missed my first turn and really lost my kick the last 40 meters. It’s the fastest time I have gone this season, but not by much. I was expecting a little better out of myself in this event.

    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).

    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!
