    AM LCM w/ BASH @ M.E. Lyons YNCA “Cuda Classic Day #2”

    Groin still sore today, but still decided to wake up early and get some more racing in.

    400 FR - 4:54.03 (32.7/36.4/36.6/37.2/37.3/37.6/37.9/38.0) - Opening 100 felt great, and I started to feel like I was getting from 3rd gear into 4th gear on the second 100. However then the piano started to fall on my back. I definitely felt labored on the last 150. A combination I am sure of still being out of shape and also being exhausted from last week’s training.

    Total: ~1800

    Four more days of “training camp,” and then I’ll take a rest day on Friday when I drive home.

    AM LCM w/ BASH @ M.E. Lyons YMCA “Cuda Classic Day #1”

    Had a good warm up at this meet and was really looking forward to seeing how I raced after a week of heavy training. However, while warming up for the 100 BR, I felt my groin start to go. Bummer. Had to scratch the event. Really thought I had done a good job with strengthening and conditioning my hip adductors and abductors, but it appears I need to work harder at this.

    200 FR - 2:17.05 (31.5/34.5/35.6/35.7) - Missed my first turn and really lost my kick the last 40 meters. It’s the fastest time I have gone this season, but not by much. I was expecting a little better out of myself in this event.

    Total: ~ 1600

  18. Sunday 6/10/18

    AM LCM w/ Blue Ash YMCA @ Miami University of Ohio "BASH/PCY Summer Classic Day #3" (or Day #1 for me)

    Back in Cincinnati visiting my folks. Due to trip preparations and an untimely thunderstorm/power outage, I was unable to swim Friday. I was travelling all day Saturday so no swimming that day either. I was a little apprehensive about how I might swim having not touched the water since Thursday morning and coming off a 9 hour drive in the car, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    100 FR - 1:00.54 (28.85/31.69) - I was a little slow on my start, and flipped 6th at the wall, but really came charging home on the back half to finish second in the heat. Kick felt great. I need to be more aggressive going out. My lifetime best in the event is only 58.2, so I am going to aim to beat that when I shave and taper.

    100 BR - 1:19.04 (36.55/42.49) - This was my throw away event. I haven't raced breaststroke in 4 years. Felt in control for the first 50 (but not that fast). Definitely lost my catch and stroke and sank really low in the water on the last 40 meters. While my freestyle is coming along nicely, my breaststroke is going to need a lot of work in the coming months to get back to racing shape.

    Total: 3000

    I am in Cincinnati for two weeks and will be using it as a mini training camp with the club team. I am entered in another meet for next weekend.
