    Cap Tex Tri

    Amy Marsh &
    Brandon Marsh are the Amy & brandon who train with me several times a week at Longhorn Masters.
    Hayley Peirsol, Aaron's sister got 2nd
    Andrew McCartney & Tenille Hoogland were guests and trained with Longhorn Masters last week. Tenille over heated and had difficulty with the run. One person said, her body temp went to 105 degrees.
    Tyler "the Miler" blogged about the triathlon.

    Also congrats to Lynn Smith she swam on a relay that did 54 of Lake Travis' 63 miles, the goal was to go dam to dam, but the water was too low for their 52 foot escort boat to follow

    continuing to experiment with fly kick freestyle (FK fr) when I'm swimming sets where I'd use a 2 beat kick. FK fr might be faster, my fly kick is faster & more powerful than my flutter kick and my legs stay more streamlined

    What's next?
    Today at breakfast Todd asked me,
    "Which LCM records are you closest to?"

    Here's the national records:
    M45-49 Long Course Meters Records
    50 Free Paul Smith 08-10-06 24.29
    100 Free Jack Groselle 08-23-99 53.90

    200 Fly Dennis G Baker 07-19-08 2:04.07
    200 IM Dennis Baker 08-10-06 2:16.12
    400 IM Dennis Baker 08-10-06 4:50.73

    here's the FINA WRs as of 11/08

    last year in the ____ (event) I went ___ which is ____ away from the WR

    50 back 28.14 0.09
    50 fly 26.03 0.13
    50 free 24.50 0.21

    I also feel like the 2:18.25 200 back is pretty soft, Chris Stevenson is likely to knock it way down this summer.
