    by , May 30th, 2009 at 03:25 PM (Ande's Swimming Blog)
    Sat May 30th, 2009
    LCM Swam a 10k today in ...

    Whitney and Chris Coached
    swim center
    6:30 am

    split lane with Larry
    swam beside Tyler, Bryan, and Ed
    jon counted and timed me
    todd counted and timed tyler and larry
    we started right at 6:30
    wore blue seventy and no cap

    went 2:19:33.52
    8373 seconds
    1:23.73 pace
    my 5000 split was 1:08:58

    10k is a long way

    I swam 1500 straight in 19:26
    took a little break
    then started doing repeat 100's on 1:20
    which was a mistake
    took a break after 2900
    the next 100 was 1:55

    started feeling hot and wished I'd wore a legskin instead of a full body
    switched from 1:20 pace to 1:25 pace at 3400
    Break at 3600
    next 100 was 1:44

    hope to enter my 100 times later it's a lot of data
    held some of my best splits
    between 6300 - 6800
    Larry had taken a break and I decided to put another lap on him

    I feel like I took too many breaks
    it was a mistake to do repeat 100's
    should have done 400's, 500's or 1000's

    I had my drinks in a cooler
    should have had them on deck ready to go
    I had several GU's, larry used power bars


    I'm tired,
    my arms are sore,
    need sleep

  3. Mon May 11 2009 NATS Results

    by , May 11th, 2009 at 08:13 PM (Ande's Swimming Blog)
    Had a great time at nats


    Central California was hot and super sunny, many people had sunburns, it was important to stay in the shade, keep covered, cool, & hydrated. I wore a hat and a long sleeve Tshirt most of the time.

    Several of my teammates had great swims like,
    Tyler's 50.18 100 fl, Mike's 50.8 100 fl, Brad's 47.2 100 fr, Todd Bartee's 100 & 200 IM, Max's 100 fr, david Guthrie's 100 & 200 breast,

    got to visit with Ahelee, Rob Butcher, Rowdy, Roque, Matt, Nancy, Vlad, Chris, Keith, Jim M, Sean McGrath, Mike Ellison& many other excellent swimmers.

    The meet was well run, I wish they would have changed the relay submission deadline to 10 am on Friday. They did a great job with individual envelopes for awards

    Nice facility. My biggest nit with the facility were the walls opposite from the starting end, they were slick tile on the front and backside. I'm sure several swimmers had issues with their feet & hands slipping on turns.


    here's real time results
