    After not getting more than 150 meters warm down after my 1500 on Friday, and being out late after the meet, I scratched the 200 FL today and then swung by the LRRC on my way to a Cinco de Mayo party to get a proper "swim out" from the meet yesterday. Will see how I feel tomorrow and decide whether to race the 200 FR and 200 BR.

  2. Friday 5/3/19

    PM LCM @ UALR "Spring Splash Invitational" Day 1

    600 swim
    4x100 @ 1:50 k/sw/dr/bld
    odd: FR
    even: FL

    4x50 @ :50 D1-3, #4 EZ
    4x25 @ :35 V.S.
    200 EZ

    50 FL - 29.45 - I entered the 50 FR and decided to do it FL just because. Felt alright for 30 meters, then it started to go south. But that is to be expected, because I have not raced LCM FL in 6 years.

    1500 FR - 18:43.87 -
    1:08.72/1:13.44/1:13.83/1:14.97
    1:14.95/1:15.12/1:15.08/1:15.81
    1:16.43/1:16.32/1:16.25/1:16.36
    1:16.69/1:16.69/1:13.21
    - Swim felt great. I was 4 FL kicks off every wall (absolutely torched the club kids on either side of me off the walls). A best time by 18 seconds.

    Total: 3600
  3. Thursday 5/2/19

    PM LCM w/ Trip @ LRRC "Recovery (for real this time)"

    1000 swim every 4th 25 head-up scull

    8x50 @ 1:00 "Progressive Freestyle" w/ SNKL

    100 EZ

    Total: 1500

    Swimming in a local USA-S meet this weekend, and with the yardage and work I put in on the front half of the week, combined with the amount of swimming I will be doing Friday through Sunday, I figured an easy day was necessary!

    SHOUT OUT: My lovely wife, who showed up on the deck as I was finishing my kick set and was able to watch time my last 50 fast kick.

    I wanted to see exactly how fast I could actually kick a 50 FR with a kickboard. My goal by the end of this summer (after I get a chance to test myself), is to be able to kick a LCM 50 FR with a board under 35 seconds. From there, I would love to see if I could get my SCY 50 FR kick time down close to (or under) 30 seconds!

    AM SCY @ Rosen Aquatic Center “YMCA Masters Nationals” Day 4

    After a savage 36 holes of putt putt golf last night that we dubbed “The Masters at Masters,” I finally managed to close out the meet with a season best.

    200 Mixed FR Relay - leadoff - 23.50

    200 I.M. - 2:05.57 (26.16/33.75/36.01/29.65) - finally a season best at least!

    Total: 2000

    Not the greatest meet performance wise, but definitely the most fun Masters meet I have ever been to. YMCA of Greater Cincinnati managed to finish second overall, so that was awesome as well.

    AM SCY @ Rosen Aquatic Center “YMCA Masters Nationals” Day 3

    500 FR - 5:06.17 - bad swim, but at this point I hbw stopped expecting much in the way of great times from this meet. Just enjoying the weekend.

    200 FR Relay - leadoff - 23.26

    200 FL - 2:06.69 - here I just made sure to win the race and stayed long and smooth so I wouldn’t be tired for the medley relay later.

    200 Medley Relay - FL - 24.67 - faster than I was yesterday by .10, so that was a great takeaway.

    Total: 3300
