    ^ Doug just did 1x100, after Trip and I were finished. The purpose was two-fold: to show us how itís actually done, and to show us that the other 5 100s are just superfluous.

    SHOUT OUT: Who else but Trip? Finally got under 1:00 on one of his 100s! Thanks to Doug for getting our times and for showing us how to actually do a 100 freestyle!

    I was better this time around than last time, but not by much. I think a lot the problem was being sick, and lifting. It actually wasn't my upper body that let me down today (despite the heavier lift). It was my legs just giving out before the end of #4. Residual fatigue from lifting legs on Thursday.

    Also, yeah I know I lied. Said I was going to just swim aerobic for the next few days while I got over being sick. But Trip rang the bell, and I had to answer.

  2. 1/26/19 Race Day #1

    Saturday, 1/26/2019 Ozark Senior Champs Day 1

    Well, here's "try to qualify for Sectionals" meet!

    Team warmup:
    300 fr
    16x50 o-k/dr, e-b
    8x25 o/c
    2 starts

    Warmup pool was 20y, so not sure exactly what I did but it was probably around 300 up and 300 down around each race.

    100 fly - 52.39 (24.40/27.99) - Off with a bang! That's almost a second and a half PR, and completely untapered too. Got a little bit of a piano the last 25 but altogether not bad.

    200 breast ​- 2:16.22 (30.20/34.71/35.59/35.72) - Felt pretty smooth for 125, but some of my turns were sloppy and I locked up a little the last 50. I haven't trained enough breaststroke for the 200 I think. Still, 2.5 seconds faster than the last time I swam it.

    100 free - 49.29 (23.53/25.76) - This one was just sloppy. I don't think I was fully recovered from the 200 breast, and it definitely felt weird. I will have to work on some things on this over the next month or so. Didn't get the auto Sectionals cut but did get the bonus cut so since I made other two events I can still swim this.

    50 free, 100 back, and 100 breast tomorrow!
