Took the short three hour drive to Salem, NH, to swim at a mini meet this afternoon. I said hi to forumite mrubacky and watched him swim a great 500. I also ran into my buddy Jim from the Cape, as well as meeting other folks there for a really nice meet.
Here are my posted times from the meet:
- 200 IM (goal: 2:16.72) - went 2:22.04
-- well off my goal, but I haven't swam this in 20 years and I guess doubling my 100 IM and adding ~10% failed. (At least I beat the high school kid from last week ) Splits were:
29.17, 1:04.80(35.63), 1:52.74(47.94), 2:22.04(29.30)
- 50 FR (goal: 24.94) - went 24.25
- 50 BR (goal: 38.77) - went 38.13
- 50 FLY (goal: 27.86) - went 27.07
- 50 BK (goal: 28.46- - went 28.22
The swims felt good (surprised myself with the fly), and an amazing thing is that the meet was over with in less than one hour! I knew that my conditioning is not the greatest, and I have not done much speed work so the times were in the ballpark of where I would expect my training to be at this time. (Total swimming for the day ~ 1900yds)
I will be registering for the Harvard meet this week, still figuring out which events to swim. Last year I entered six, and I am thinking of eight or ten this year - depending. One Hour swim before the end of the month as I incorporate more speed work into my routine.
