    RESULTS


    Event 1 Men 45-49 400 Yard IM

    I Did not know the heats were mixed & seated fastest to slowest.
    I thought I had 30 min before my race then suddenly found out I had 4 minutes to get my new suit on & show up at the blocks.
    I was tying my suit & putting on my cap as others in my heat were on the blocks.

    2 Rasmussen, Anders M 49 Longhorn Aquatic 4:24.24
    26.87 58.60 (31.73)
    1:32.15 (33.55) 2:05.26 (33.11)
    2:42.48 (37.22) 3:20.97 (38.49)
    3:53.66 (32.69) 4:24.24 (30.58)

    My swim was better than last year, but I kinda wussed out on BR & FR, never really turned on my kick till the last 25 & oh geez did it hurt. Sometime I need to 6 beat kick the whole last 100.
    pretty sure if I was more warmed up or psyched I can go faster. On BR I tried a low stroke count with more gliding.

    I got 2nd, Congrats to Ross Davis, 46 Woodlands Master Who won with a 4:20.00
    26.96 57.36 (30.40)
    1:29.59 (32.23) 2:01.57 (31.98)
    2:38.54 (36.97) 3:17.10 (38.56)
    3:48.94 (31.84) 4:20.00 (31.06

    Also congrats to my training partner Jim Sauer who almost broke Mike Manns 55 - 59 NR
    4:28.69 4/10/2010 MICHAEL MANN
    Mike raced in a faster suit.

    1 Sauer, Jim 55 Longhorn Aquatic 4:29.05 20
    28.39 1:00.25 (31.86)
    1:35.43 (35.18) 2:09.67 (34.24)
    2:47.93 (38.26) 3:27.04 (39.11)
    3:58.58 (31.54) 4:29.05 (30.47)

    For some odd reason I entered both the 400 IM & 1650
    Was fairly certain I was going to scratch the 1650
    But like a dumb a$$ I checked in & decided to swim it

    So I got up to race

    1 Rasmussen, Anders M 49 Longhorn Aquatic 18:19.13 20
    29.74 1:01.63 (31.89)
    1:34.43 (32.80) 2:07.95 (33.52)
    2:41.65 (33.70) 3:15.54 (33.89)
    3:49.69 (34.15) 4:23.64 (33.95)
    4:57.70 (34.06) 5:32.30 (34.60)
    6:06.82 (34.52) 6:41.08 (34.26)
    7:14.85 (33.77) 7:48.68 (33.83)
    8:22.56 (33.88) 8:56.59 (34.03)
    9:30.35 (33.76) 10:04.03 (33.68)
    10:37.90 (33.87) 11:11.34 (33.44) 5:39.04
    11:44.84 (33.50) 12:17.96 (33.12)
    12:51.34 (33.38) 13:24.46 (33.12)
    13:57.63 (33.17) 14:30.62 (32.99)
    15:03.29 (32.67) 15:36.09 (32.80)
    16:09.05 (32.96) 16:41.97 (32.92) 5:30.63
    17:14.77 (32.80) 17:47.38 (32.61) 18:19.13 (31.75)

    I felt fairly fatigued from 4 IM & wanted to get out right away, from the pool not out fast on my race, I swam it safe & steady & picked it up some in the last 5.
    I was in lane 5, David Alley was in lane 4 & went out in 5:11 at the 500, Dick Worrell was in lane 6, I was ahead of him at first then passed me & never caught him. I thought about sprinting the last 150 or 100 or 50 but didn't.pretty sure I coulda gone much faster in either if I just picked one race.

    It was a dumb double & a hard way to begin a 3 day meet.

    Sun Jan 27, 2013 HOUR SWIM POSTAL

    I attempted the Postal on Wed at noon but did hard work outs, Wed morning, Tuesday, & Monday. Around 3k I felt terrible, so I stopped.
    I knew Larry, Dick, & Sharon were going to do it on Sunday, so I figured I'd take another shot or not.

    I swam Fast Friday hard but took it easy at Saturday practice then got a lot of sleep with a 3 hour Saturday afternoon nap and a lazy sleep late Sunday morning. Despite staying up late Saturday night watching "Banshee"

    I also shaved & just decided to swim long smooth & easy.

    When I got the pool, we picked our lanes & I warmed up a little, probably swam around 400. then we dove in for our start at 12:10.
    I split the lane 1 with Dick & swam next to Larry who was in lane 2 beside me.

    I dove in & swam long smooth steady. I could see the digital clock and had a sense of time & pace. To my surprise I didn't stop & felt OK at half way

    Days Till SC Zones

    Yesterday at noon practice, I attempted the hour swim, but I swam a hard on both Tue and Wed mornings, which proved to be a bad idea. We dove in at 12:05 & I swam 3000, but felt like I was on the verge of cramps & I started getting hot so I decided to end my attempt & maybe try again on Sunday, or not.

    Today I didn't set my alarm and woke up at 5:55, which is late, I need to leave my house by 5:45 to get to 6:30 practice with good traffic. But I hit the road to do whatever I could, & encountered much more traffic than normal which delayed my arrival.

    (in round 1, I missed the 4 x 100 fr & the 50 easy, started with the 3 x 100's )
    I built into this

    went 54 from a push on the last one in round 2
