I was entered in the 400 IM last night & opted to skip it & just stay home

I entered the 400 FR thinking I'd do a 50 or 100 split request. Then found out the touch pads at the far end weren't hooked up. So I got up and swam the 400 Fr, did 350 easy speed, 2 beat kick then 6 beat kicked the last 50
67.54
72.79 2:20.33
73.76 3:34.09
67.81 4:41.90 2:21.57

50 BR 34.57
Went a little faster than Omaha

Was entered in the 1 fr & skipped it

50 BK 29.02
Yes! Very happy with that
I went 29.50 at Nats so that's a big improvement

Looking back I was dumb to swim the 4 free & 50 BR, because my priority was the 50 BK & 100 BK relay lead off on the 4 x 100 medley with

BK me, 49
65.49
Whitney said my splits were
31.8 33.6

BR David Guthrie 52
1:09.64 2:15.13

FL Jim Sauer, 55
1:02.37 3:17.50

FR Mike Varozza, 45
56.26 4:13.76

Honestly wasn't happy with my time & felt I could have gone faster, but it was my 4th swim of the day. I should have prioritized & skipped the 4 FR & 50 BR. The pool was warm around 85 degrees & the air on deck was in the 90s, doors we opened at each end of the pool
But we did break the 200+ men's 4 x 100 WR which was 4:27.93 so we're all pretty psyched about that.


Tomorrow I've entered the::

800 fr (in case I wanted to do a split request)
50 FR
200 IM
50 FL & we have the
4 x 100 fr relay with David, Mike, & Jim
The WR is 3:54.63

Right now I plan on skipping the 8 fr & 2IM
To rest up for the relay, but the FL is right before it

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that the WR gets broken by about 6 seconds.

    thanks, wasn't quite 6 seconds, we were happy to have Mike Varozza on our relay & it's tough when the relay is the last event of the day
