    we sometimes do drills in warm up
    that set was hard
    I settled into a pace and effort that was strong but not all out
    if the fast & easy were reversed, I'd have way more time to recover and would swim the 50's faster & harder

    Hey Mike,

    Tyler said his USMS postal swim counter/timer iphone/Ipad app should be available very soon
    The user can time and also correct mistakes
    time several lanes at once
    When the swim is over the user can email the results to anyone or have the data feed directly to the online entry
    I believe it also shows a running pace
    very cool, super useful.
    Can't wait.

    Nice job Ande.

    I'm very interested in what you wrote:
    "Tyler counted and timed using his cool Iphone App
    it might be available for the 2012 Hr swim"

    Is this available to the public, if so, I'd be willijng to pay for a good postal swim app. Write now we're using MS Excel with a VB module on a laptop.

    Thanks for any info you can give me.

    Mike

    Pat, We'll see, I took it off for now.
    if I'm in an either-or-pick-one situation with my wife I'd rather go to Omaha to swim in the Olympic trial pool

    Thanks Jim,
    It helped to have breaks after 2 & 6
    Also felt like I got in a groove but was flirting with a cramp in my left calf

    Mike Varozza did a 200 fly so I decided to attempt one too
    Good thing he didn't do something more crazy like a 400 LCM Fly!

    Sounds like a plan!

    The LCM Nats order of events just sucks for me.

    Lol, I followed for the warm-up and transition sets, then she wanted me to lead for the main set.

    At least I know I'd have someone to swim with if I ever make it to Austin

    thanks, I wasn't getting much rest and had slight draft from Tyler, Friday's 100's on 2:30 were LCM
    I went back and edited my entry since it had 2 LCMs & 1 SCY
