Swam in a LCM meet in Boise ID last weekend. This was my first LCM meet in almost 3 years.
50 free - 31.65. This was a good swim. I felt good until the last 15 or so but had strong stroke, good turnover and only took 4 breaths. This is the 3rd fastest 50 I've ever done!
100 back - 1:26.42. Not a very good swim. Had a decent underwater (12 SDK) but then a really poor breakout and just no arm speed. Never could get it going.
50 Fly - 34.51. Another decent swim and the 2nd fastest I've ever done. Felt good and strong all the way!
50 Back - 37.03. This was a good race also! And again, my 2nd fastest ever. Had a great underwater and breakout and really good turnover all the way. It was good that this race went so well because the other 2 swims for the day were not good at all.
100 Free - 1:13.04. Ugh! Not sure why it was this slow. I had expected to be around 1:10±. Didn't feel slow. Maybe the 50 took more out of me than I thought even though I had an hour between the 2 swims.
200 Back - 3:19.58. WTF!! I guess I thought it was time for a Sunday stroll! Based on how my training had been going and the times of some broken 200's I had done, I was expecting a time around 3:00-3:05. Since I didn't make the NQT for this event I will not enter it in Omaha and just focus my training on the 50's and 100's.
A good meet for the 50's but the longer distances need a little work. But I have 6+ weeks to fix that. I wish I could get one more LCM meet before I start to taper but nothing close enough that I can get to in a weekend. I may do a SCM meet at the end of June but that's yet to be decided.
