Felt like I swam more than that, but I guess when you change into taper mode and are putting out higher intensity with more rest that should feel about right. I'm a little disappointed that my fast swims were not faster, although I did play around with turnover a bit and found that I need to crank over faster for the sprint events. Anyways, more time to talk with my lanemates, so that is good.
It seems like my training has pointed me towards some gains in the 100+ events, so we'll see if that Yingfa can help to assist the 50's. My plan for the rest of the week is to drop total yardage tomorrow, a swim before work on Wednesday (most likely meet warmup, a few 25 or 50's, then warmdown), and then off on Thursday due to work.
You can check out the psych sheets and also info about tuning in via the intertubes at the official Harvard Meet website. They will display a virtual scoreboard with each heat as well as live video from the deck - pretty neat way to check in all 887 athletes in action if you are so inclined.
Oh, the New England Masters website is hinting that the LCM regional champs will be at Harvard in early June. I might try to go and swim my first ever LCM meet. I might decide to just ride my motorcycle around, too.
