LCM Zones Day 3
Sunday July 24th, 2011

Arrived late, (packing up our hotel room)
No warm up at all

100 fl
Dove in dry, Cruised the 1st 50 easy speed, barely kicked like I was taking out a 2 IM
went 1:01.85
split 29.75 32.10
Got 2nd
1st Ross Davis 1:01.60 29.01 32.59

50 Br
right after the fly, warmed down from fly & up for Br
Went 34.00

Got decent rest before the

200 Br
2:49.45

38.77 43.92 43.48 43.28
stayed smooth & easy for first 3 lengths,
Tried pick up last 50
My Stroke counts for each length were: 12, 14.5, 16, & 19
Think I'm better off staying long & gliding, maybe add more power to each pull & kick

50 fr
26.03
it hurt
Korey, the new guy on TXLA, went 25.3

800 fr
Swam it because I thought I could break Larry Wood's 9:52.28 zone record
got plenty of rest & warm up, (relays & 4 800 heats before mine)
swam it steady then 6 beat kicked the last 50
Splits:

1:08.36 32.81 35.55 1:08.36

    Great swimming Ande.
    I like the "train for everything - swim anything" style.

    Nicely split 800!

    Pretty darn good 100 fly considering you didn't warm up. Do you think you would have been faster if you had? Would you have taken it out faster?

    Great swims! It's funny you mention that you paced the first 50 of the 100 fly the same as your 200 IM, because that's exactly what I do every time! I pace the first 100 of the 200 fly and the 400 IM the same too. And I suppose the same can be said for the first 25 of the 50 fly and the 100 IM - I swim them both all out.

    Thank you Karl,
    guess I did take a "train for everything - swim anything" approach to this season

    Hey Kirk
    thanks for saying "Nicely split 800!"
    I edited the post this morning and added up my 100's 200's, & 400's
    4:48.83 4:51.17 is pretty good
    I think I should have been tougher on my last 200 & thrown in a 6 beat kick at the 650 or 700 instead of at the 750
    it would have been fun for my last 100 to be faster than my first

    thanks on my 100 fly, I might have been faster if I'd warmed up, hard to say. I think it's the closest I've ever split one LCM
    I should have taken it out faster, should have at least been 28 mid to high


    hey That Guy,
    thank you
    the 1 fl is much more fun when you pace it right
    I should have gone a bit harder
    fly is a funny stroke, there's a thin line between flow and force, that 1st 50 felt pretty easy
