  1. Friday 7/6/18

    PM LCM @ UALR "Mary Grace Tucker Memorial Invitational Day #1"

    400 swim
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: k/dr
    even: dr/sw
    3x100 @ 1:30 @ 800 PACE
    100 EZ

    800 FR - 9:31.49 (1:05.89/1:10.79/1:11.39/1:12.32/1:11.80/1:12.55/1:13.90/1:12.85) - It was a little worrisome when I watched the boys on my left and right go taking off over the first 100 meters. I told myself to put some blinders on and just did my own thing, and when I flipped at the 350, I finally saw them...passing the flags going into the wall while I was going the other way! I was told I looked strong through the whole race. I was happy with an opening 400 of 4:40.39, I just wish I could have been back a little faster than 4:51.1. On the other hand, both those splits are faster than I went I have been all season in the 400, so that bodes well for Sunday's event!

    I had two 500 meter warm ups during the course of the meet and a 400 warm down at the end as well.

    Total: 3200

    SHOUT OUT: Doug Martin, who wasn’t too out of breath after his 50 FR to come time for me in the 800.

    Friday, 7/6/2018 Pool Workout
    CMS, LCM

    Was really sore from "Rene" yesterday and also was out late for fireworks so took a rest day. Still sore today. Loosened up a bit as the workout went on. Pool was hot though (somebody had turned off the aerator) so that wasn't optimal.
