"Spring Splash Invitational Day #2"
So I couldn't swim on day 1, so I came into the meet today and really mixed up my events,doing the 200 FL and 200 BK.
200 FL - 2:46.94 (1:11.42/1:35.52) - The splits speak for themselves. Started off feeling smooth, maybe pushed my tempo a little bit on the first 75. However, after the second turn things started to unravel. First, I lost my arms. Then my legs gave out (I lifted heavy legs yesterday). Finally, at the third turn, my core gave out. I literally felt like I had just done 10,000 abs and then tried to sit up. The last 50 took FOREVER. I really only swam this because I noticed there wasn't even ten swimmers on the top 10 list last year for my age group!
200 BK - 2:45.92 (1:21.48/1:24.44) - This swim was a little better than the 200 FL. I have not swam a 200 BK LCM or SCY in probably 15 years (at least). My last time I remember having in the 200M BK was a 3:00.xx, so I cracked the 3:00 barrier AND dropped basically a second for every year I had not swam it! I had no legs after the first 50, but I really just tried to focus on my catch and my underwaters off the turns (which were pretty good until the last turn). Again, I swam this mainly because there were less than 10 people in the top ten last year. I would love to say I got onto the list in what could be my absolute worst event!
~ 2600 warm up and warm down
