Today was a looooong day. Warmups were at 11:00am, with the afternoon session starting at 12:00pm. It's 8:00pm right now. The only thing that saved me was the 2 1/2 hours after the 100 Free that I spent at home staying out of the sun.
All my events in USA-S I swim as exhibition so as to not take away any placing points or awards from the kids/teams. I'm just swimming for the times.
My 1500 from last night I was the 5th fastest time (and was not chicked).
100 LCM Free: 1:00.10 (previous best 1:00.11) BEST TIME!! NEW LMSC RECORD (by .01)
Was 12th place (I was chicked by 1 female - Shari Hart, 40 yrs old from the PNA - 59.96 Good job to her!!
Going out I felt great, but coming home I was breathing every stroke, and my legs were burning on the last 25. Wanted under a minute soooo bad.
50 LCM Fly: 28.87 (previous best 29.00) BEST TIME!! NEW LMSC RECORD (by .13)
Was 5th place
I found that as long as I kept my head down I was fast...whenever I took a breath I could feel the brakes being applied. Still a fast swim.
200 LCM Fly: 2:26.62 (previous best 2:32.08) BEST TIME!! NEW LMSC RECORD (by 5.5 sec.)
Was 8th Place - chicked by 1 sixteen year old - 2:26.56 - (.06 ahead of me)
My splits tell it all. It felt great. I took it out a second slower than the previous two times, and ended up bringing the back half home strong with a 6 second drop. Yippie!!
(Not sure if the slower 1st 100 or the Cheeseburger, Chips, and Mountain Dew from the concession stand did the trick to make me swim a faster race)
I have a video that only has the 2nd 100 of the race (I'm in the RED CAP)

200 LCM Breast: 3:00.13 (2 sec. slower that last year)
didn't get the splits
don't know what place (don't care either)
chicked by as many as possible.
This last event (for me) was completed at 7:30pm or so. They had the 400 Free after the breaststrokes, and it was schueduled to end close to 10:00pm!! Very long day, and at least I was able to get home in the middle of it for a little R & R.
Tomorrow is a lot shorter day, and I will be swimming:
50 Free, 100 Fly, 200 IM, & 200 Free
