FR Max Stinchcombe 54
27.46 30.09 0:57.55
3:36.76 4:06.88

last yr at this same meet we went 4:11.46,
then in Oct 2011 Rowdy Gaines & his Blu Frog Crew went 4:09.29
I'm very happy with my swim but that 2nd 50 really hurt
I believe my SDK counts were 10 9 8 6,
Jim's Mr Most Improved.

I entered 400 fr but opted to skip it to rest up for 50 br, 2 IM, & 50 FL


50 br
Went 32.2
My BR in IMs feels pretty good
Trying to sprint br feels really clumsy


200 IM
2:14.88
28.72 went a bit too hard
33.99 1:02.71 Kicked too hard
39.68 1:42.39 losing steam
32.49 2:14.88 Died bad, not much left
Went a bit too hard on the fl & bk, didn't have as much for the BR & FR
Wish i could have done it smarter & fresh
Tyler split 30.29 34.54 39.23 30.38
so I razzed him in the 1 & 4 IM & he blessed me in the 2.

That race hurt worse than it should have and I went slower than I could have
Wore my new size 34 speedo pro gold
Felt like the butt filled up with water
Should have gotten a 32 or 30, so had a few issues with my splitting and the suit.

2 IM & 50 fl were bk to bk
Changed suits & didn't swim down much

50 fl
Felt tired & weak
Went 27.4

4 x 50 medley
Bk Ande 48
Br David Guthrie 51
Fl Mike Varozza 44
Fr Korey Mayronne 34
28.56 my left foot slipped on the start
30.99 59.55
25.73 1:25.28
24.07 1:49.35

Opted to skip the 800 fr, my meet & SCM season are done
Felt pretty wiped out, had a nice late lunch at Chuys
Have a bunch of Videos to YouTube

I was worried going into this meet, I:
quit weights in July when my gym shut down,
had a distance diversion between Jun - Oct, &
weighed way too much a week away from the meet. but it worked out OK

I AM DONE WITH DISTANCE &
READY TO BE A BORN AGAIN SPRINTER.

    Nice swims, especially 200 IM and 50 brst (heck, anything under 40 impresses me in breaststroke). Tough luck with the slip on the start in the relay leadoff, I hate it when that happens.

    Great job getting the record in the 400 medley relay! And congrats on a great meet. You are one amazingly versatile swimmer. What did you think was your best swim of the meet?

    thanks Chris,
    I feel like I messed up my splitting on the 200 IM and that last 75 was so painful.
    slipping sucks, you gotta get a strong start, I was like OH CRAP & very surprised with the 28.5

    Hi Leslie,
    Rowdy went on a record breaking rampage and the 4 x 100 medley was the only race we had a shot at.
    I think my best races were the 100 IM & 100 BK lead off, both were big improvements from last year.

    This beats having issues with your suit splitting.
