Well...I'm exhausted. This day was tough, even though I only had to work 4.5 hours beforehand.
My legs are just shot. I have no cardio. I'm starting to sound like a sprinter... But I did suck it up and swim all my events...not the greatest, but I did swim them. I think I may have swum about 10-12 times since my last meet a month ago also...
200 Free - (2:15.47) 30/34/36/34 or so
3 seconds slower than my meet 4 weeks ago in Corvallis, though it was good enough for a 10th place ribbon (and NO there weren't only 10 people in the event...) My legs hurt so bad on the 3rd length.
100 Back - (1:14.99) 36/38
This was my first time in the 100 Back LCM as a master swimmer, so a best time! Yippie! I actually felt good, and the clouds came out just in time for the backstroke races!!
50 Free - (27.91) about a 1/2 second slow.
I'm not a sprinter. At least I was first place among all athletes over 20 years of age.
200 Fly - (2:43.57) 34/40/43/46**
**SPECIAL NOTE: I did stop at the 150 point and hang on the wall for 10 seconds to talk to the official about the weather...so my last 50 split was approx. a 36 or so. A much needed rest though. I knew I was going to do something like this ahead of time, just not sure when and how often or how much break time. But as long as you hang onto the wall, you can't be DQ'd.
I'm actually surprised that I showed up at the blocks for the race. My "coach" wouldn't allow me to skip it, said I had to be a good role model for the age group kids on the local club team.
It was also good enough for another 10th place ribbon (out of 13 athletes).
