I arrived at the pool early thinking I had a lot of time to do a long warmup. Then one of my team mates asked me to count for her 1650. So my warm up was cut a bit short and I only got to do 1 race start off the blocks.
Then I was informed that I was swimming on 2 relays, the men's 200 free and the mixed 200 medley (fly).
1st event: 50 fly - 30.28
In spite of having a warmup that was shorter than I had planned on this went surprising well. This time is my 3rd fastest ever.
2nd event: 200 free relay my split was 28.0.
By the time I hit the water we were way behind the rest of the heat so I dogged this a bit since the 100 back was the very next event.
3rd event: 100 back, 1:11.72.
Faster than I did at the Utah meet last week so I was pleased.
4th event: 200 medley relay. swam fly didn't get a split.
I was starting to feel sore and tired going into this one. It felt real sloppy.
5th event: 50 free. 29 something.
This was right after the relay. I got to rest through 3 heats of 50's. So, I was about done for when I stepped up for this one. But the 1st 25 felt pretty good. Then I totally blew the turn, misjudged the wall, got too close and landed my feet on the deck. That sucks!!
Went to the warm up pool and swam 600 easy free.
