200 Warm down

I swam back on the fly round.
I could have swam round #2 harder but I was going 2nd, I was catching greg off the 1st wall when I dolphin kicked.
Oh well next time I go 1st. Then I had to go 1st on breast, my worst stroke. But I gave it a
solid effort and I actually gained more than 5 secs on the 100. Crazy!! I guess I'll just have to try harder more often.
Swimming is such a MENTAL sport.
Going 1st just makes you try harder.
I think it's good to switch who goes 1st sometimes.
Some days feel great.
Some days I feel my age :-)
