    FAST FRI MAY 29th, 2014 LCM & SCY

    I am a bad blogger.

    I shoulda at least reported my SCY Nats results, but they were pretty dismal.
    1st event was
    400 IM, I dove in & immediately got a foot cramp, had to have my foot at 90 degrees, pointing towards the bottom. it felt better around the breastroke but I was so far behind.
    100 FL was OK but slow
    50 FR relay lead off was slow
    50 BK was 1.6 sec slower than zones, slipped on the start & missed the turn.
    100 IM was slower than zones, hit the lane line on backstroke
    100 BK was slow
    (scratched the 200 IM to leave early and vacation for a couple days with my wife)
