    Monday Dec 31st, 2012 400 KICK for Time
    Tomorrow I will be a FINA 50!

    Lately I've been preparing for the 400 Kick for Time
    I showed up yesterday for Sunday practice and the pool was set up LCM, and the 400 Kick for time is SCY, so it was a no go. Showed up today for 5:30 am to 7:00 practice & the pool was still LCM, did most of the practice, then got out 15 minutes early, put on a B70 jammer & gave the 400 another shot,
    my 1st 2 tries were 5:32 & 5:24,
    today I went 5:08.11

    went out a bit too hard but it didn't feel like it at the time
    stuck with the NO STROKE RULE which I really wanted to break but didn't
    wore a jammer
