    Bummer that you are sick, Ande. Hope you feel better soon.

    Have you changed your weight training regimen recently?

    I usually find that sick-sore is a whole body phenomenon, including my head. Weights-sore is usually more localized.

    Ande,

    Great one hour and GREAT speed today. You must be wearing out tech suits soon and I'm sure there is a second hand market. I'm 6'2" 175lbs.

    Checking out zone records.

    How about this stout time in the 60-64 group?

    Thanks for the heads-up on the postal results...congrats on your (and Tyler's) high placing.

    I saw Mike Shaffer went 5910 in the one-hour swim. That's crazy fast.

    Hey Ande,

    I noticed your 50 and 100 back records from many years ago.
    It seems as if your current 50 back time is almost 2 seconds better...and the 100 back, around 1 second or more faster.


    Were you incorporating many underwater kicks back then?
    How would those swims compare to your latest race strategies? (in terms of the SDK)

    Thanks, val

    I am not sure you entered enough events. You know you could have entered the mile Friday on one more event on Saturday right?

    Good luck with your meets, Ande

    yes, going into zones, I hope to increase my speed.

    Breastroke is my worst stroke but it's not awful.

    did you mean rest from the pool or "rest" from aerobic training?

    So are you holding speed until Zones?

    Your BR is fast now. Clearly helps your IMs.

    it's very disappointing to make NCAA's and
    not be able to swim in the meet,
    happened to me in 1985

    Congrats on your FINA TTs!

    How do you think you hurt your knee?

    Ande, congrats on your Fina TT's! Wow, those are some very fast times. Your 50 free is just getting better and better. So is your 50 fly. What is the secret? Keep up the good work, Ande!

    How much would it suck to make NCAA cuts, and then not go because your team had too many qualify. I feel sorry for those guys.

    Good swims Ande, even that 100fr isn't too shabby

    hey

    I was happy they had C D & E finals it let more people swim LM at night

    thanks
    no I held back a lot hoping to even split and save for the 100 fr

    maybe, I wasn't happy with my time & hoped to go faster


    sc & lc ws cool

    it's good to be "ready for anything!"

    It gave people chances to swim fast and people went for it in the prelims rather than just cruising in to the finals

    some of the college kids swam hoping to post faster times
    even though the time to do NCAA cuts passed, the team submission aren't due yet. UT 21 swimmers make NCAAs. Teams can only have 18 members divers count half so
    2 divers & 17 swimmers go
    or
    3 divers & 16 swimmers
