    i should have included a link or at least a photo. I'm sure long socks would work and probably drap even more. The jury is still out on the possible benefits. They really should have named them AnchorSox.

    Triple digit temperatures, work boots and a long shift might have something to do with that. Don't let Diane talk you into trying them. I told her to keep the receipt handy.

    I love this set! I am recovering from shoulder surgery, but will throw this in the mix when I'm training fly again. Thanks for sharing!

    I used fins on the UWs and on the swimming bits. I'll have to use fins to swim for awhile, I fear.

    I always rest. Usually, when I do the 100 pace 50s, I do them odds = 100 pace @ 1:00 or so, evens = ez @ 2:00 or so. Today, I was resting more than that on the last 3-4. 100 pace 50s are hard, especially fly.

    Yeah it seems odd that you wouldn't have more ... There were definitely a lot of very happy adult swimmers to have the extra 5 days outside with extended hours. Too bad it has to end!

    Thanks Steve. I was very happy with the 50 free. Yeah, 3 feet can be treacherous for sure. I guess I could have tried to kick out on my side, but just didn't feel like possibly being aggravated after two good swims.

    Thanks. The record really wasn't on my radar, so I was just very happy with the time. I am thinking about that meet next year. I swam there as a kid growing up. The usual suspects could interfere: summer vacations and my relative lack of interest in long course meters.

    You're buddy Jack Groselle was at the meet.
