    Main Set Continued:
    10 x 100 FAST Free @ 2:15
    • OMG!!
    • !!
    • OUCH!! <-- me
    • ranged from 1:03-1:05 on #1-9
    • #10 as I was ready to leave, I told the 14 year old behind me to "try and catch me"...bad move on my part (I had intentions of going fast)
    • He was on top of me at the 75 turn and scared the crap out of me...I did beat him to the wall, but his :05 second interval sendoff behind me absolutely crushed me. I did go a 1:02, so Henry was around :57.
    • I asked him if my "try and catch me" is what spurred him on. He said "Yup!" Normally he doesn't swim like that.
