Left Wenatchee mega mega early...about 4:15am or so, to travel across the mountains to the Seattle area. Met up with That Guy and That Guy's friend (yes he has one), and we carpooled to the ferry docks to save a bit of money.
I was feeling okay during the meet warmup, but not 100% for sure. Not sure if it was the early morning, or the beatings that my body has been given at practices over the past month. Probably a bit of both. Oh well, you have to race anyway...
200 Free - 1:56.95

I tied with That Guy in this one. We were in separate heats too. He got a best time, I had a worst time. Who wins?
100 Free - 55.23
26.47 / 28.76
I seem to recall doing this very same time during my 5 x 100 @ 6:00 set on Thursday. I just couldn't get going!
500 Free - 5:19.52
29.17 / 32.26
32.94 / 32.87
32.86 / 32.77
32.43 / 32.15
31.71 / 30.36
I was able to negative split this one 2:40/2:39 First time I've been able to do that. I didn't have a counter person either, and attempted counting for myself. I did sneak a peek on Kirk's counter during the race at length #9 and was correct on my counting, so I began to pick it up there. That's about the point my body started feeling good. The shorter length races just weren't working for me today.
At least my freestyle race times seem to go "together" in a sense:
50 - 24.95 (100 avg. 50.0)
100 - 55.23 (100 avg. 55.2)
200 - 1:56.95 (100 avg. 58.4)
500 - 5:19.52 (100 avg. 1:03.9)
