    Missed my 400 IM heat
    I screwed up
    Misguesstimated the IM timeline
    I'm bummed & pissed

    Was in vendor village changing & like a dumb ass, I got my registration bag, thinking I had time

    i walked on deck right as heat 13 finished, Then ran whistling & yelling trying to make it, trying to get them to delay the heat a bit but was on the opposite end as my heat dove in, with lane 2 empty,

    bummer, I shoulda been earlier or jumped in,

    But at least I my time from zones held up in my age group & i'll be fresh & agitated for the 50 fly

    50 fl
    Went 24.13 got 2nd went 23.91 at zones
    lifted my head to breathe right before turn & had a long glide touch
    Bobby Patten got 1st 23.78 in a diff heat

    Josh Davis blazed 22.2
    Tyler 23.67
    Mike Varozza 23.68
    Bartee 25.5

    Swam mixed free relay with
    bess, Mary & Ed
    Lead off in 22.24, Didn't have a good turn and streamline kick off it
    Pretty close to my zones time

    Round 4: skip

    played in diving well,
    today for the first time ever,
    I made a streamline glide all the way across a 25 yard pool.
    a streamline glide is where you:
    1) push off the wall streamlined and
    2) glide as far as you can but
    you can't kick,
    you can't pull,
    you can't breathe,
    you can't break your streamline
    you can only glide and see how far you can go
    Try it
    Mike Varozza witnessed it.

    Here's a video I made Friday Apr 22nd, 2011

    Bummer, no practice today. I was really looking forward to fast Friday and was even hoping to double. BUT it snowed last night all over Central Texas and a little bit of snow and ice shuts Texas down.

    I might have been able to train with Longhorn Aquatics or UT Men this afternoon but I have an important appointment at 4:00 that I can't miss.

    We got a series of emails keeping us informed or our practice situation. starting with

    Subject: [txla-agegroup] Masters and Tom's groups canceled


    While we usually try to align with AISD's closings, they are waiting to make a decision until tomorrow morning, which is too late for our practices. We have decided to err on the side of caution and cancel Friday morning practices for Masters and Senior Longhorn and Longhorn Training group.
    There will still be a noon masters practice unless UT closes.

    Be safe.

    Congrats to my Longhorn Teammate Mike Varrozza, awesome swimmer & owner of Waterloo Swim School, I trained in his lane yesterday and he said nothing to me about this article. yesterday he led the fly set so he was the lane leader & a wonderful draft provider for me.

    PHOENIX, Arizona, January 4. MASTERS swimmer Mike Varozza of Longhorn Aquatics is featured in the latest issue of Swimming World Magazine as a Lane Leader.
