    Glad to know you're in the human species too!

    Still, it's a very fast time. Good luck tomorrow!

    Your splits were right there...other than taking it out a few tenths faster.
    Too bad about the turn. Hope you have a great meet.

    25.83 53.32 (27.49)
    25.62 53.32 (27.70)
    25.62 53.34 (27.72)
    25.31 53.37 (28.06)

    :25.3 is moving. No wonder the back half felt hard.

    The way I look at it, you are giving youself a chance at a great time by going out fast. I always liked that attitude. It's still fast. Clear your head and go for it tomorrow!

    Nice 200 back Ande. So evenly a machine.
    Did you hold back on the 1st 100?

    Ditto Ande, real nice job. Who is Mike Varozza? You swim with him?

    hey guys,
    I'm probably an IMer, my fly, bk & free are pretty even. Breastroke isn't quite as good but it doesn't suck.
    went 1:51.4 in college, was 1:56. out of high school.
    I prefer the 100 IM
