Mixing it up this year

I really like my toys and will continue to use them. The mix will be both distance and sprints. My focus for this year is to maintain my 200 fly time.

  18. Monday after a good meet

    by , October 20th, 2014 at 08:28 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Had a USA meet this weekend to work on my IMX events. The 200 back was about normal as was the 200 IM. The 400 IM went great I had to go back to 2011 for a better time than I did this weekend. I think is is just coming off the taper from last weekend. Now back to work.

    Next meets are the Freestyle Frenzy in November where I will do the 500 free and maybe the 1650 then either Columbia or Atlanta. After talking with the Dekalb Aquatics coach this weekend, he has a problem with the same individual I do.
