    FAST FRI May 22, 2015 LCM

    Swam: Wed & Thu

    Thanks for my many BD wishes yesterday on FB, I'm 52, I age up in 2018.

    AM practice LCM main pool
    Whitney coached
    6:00 - 7:30
    Swam with Jim Sauer, Boris, Lea, Anne,
    Beside Ditz, Gull, Alley Cat
    where was Mike V, Todd B & Tyler the Miler?

    warm up
    did around 700 - 800

    Main Set

    5 rounds of:
    something fast on 7:00, it could be a 50, 100, 200, or 400
    all 5 must be the same, we had lanes for each.
    at first I stood behind the 400 lane then decided to do 100's
    did em from a dive 50 FR 50 BK did an easy 100 after most of them
    went 1:08, 1:06, 1:05, 1:04, 1:03, 1:04
    on the faster ones I 6 beat kicked

    We thought we were going to have to move to the well or squeeze down to 5 lanes at 7:00
    but UT women are gone and UT men volunteered to warm up in the well
    so we stayed in the main pool the whole time

    50 FL fast on 7:00
    went 28

    100 FR bk fast on 7:00
    went 64

    200 fr bk fast on 7:00

    I had fun at nats but was disappointed with my times.
    A friend said you were in no mans land

  12. New Orleans

    by , December 10th, 2014 at 12:59 PM (Ande's Swimming Blog)
    Southern Masters SCM Swimming Championships,
    UNO Pool -
    Dec 6 - 7, 2014

    New Orleans was fun

    I swam slow in the meet, it was small and the sessions went by too quickly. It was a well run meet, they served lunch on Sat and the people were super nice.

    Sat, I arrived late on & didn’t warm up at all for my 50 fly, went 28.2
    comparison
    50 LCM fl 2013 27.0 in the & 27.5 this past summer

    Cruised the 1 bk in a 1:06,
    32.72 1:06.74
    2 years ago I went 1:00.4

    50 free was the very next event and I only went 26.4
    think I was 25.4 last year

    Sun:
    In my 50 bk I discovered the bk flags were set at 5 meters at the starting end and 5 yards at the turn end. When I turned over at the 25 in my 50, the wall was too close and I barely had room to flip. I felt like I lost speed & momentum.
    Still went 29.5 was 29.1 last year & 27.8 the year before that

    cruised my 200 IM
    31.88
    38.94 1:10.82
    41.58 1:52.40
    32.40 2:24.80

    I should have gone to California & raced at the SPMA SCM Meet.

    I'm frustrated & disappointed, yet inspired to be much better at SC nats.
    I need to be much stronger and do more short fast timed swims in practice.
