4700 Yards


A fairly easy practice overall. It was nice that John went easy on us so I didn't have to get out super early like an who is tapering. Yeah, the yardage was semi-high, but it was mostly all slow-type swimming, with a few race pace bursts near the end. I felt good, well except for my new worst stroke of backstroke. My arm is still a little sore from my flu shot yesterday, but it's much better.

I also see that the Club Assistant online heat/psych sheet is up for the NW Zone SCM meet:

I'm doing the 400 Free, 200 Fly, 200 IM, 200 Breast, and 800 IM on Saturday, with the 400 IM as my sole event on Sunday. Sunday will be a "play it by ear" day as to whether or not I swim or not. I am the top seed in the 400 IM overall with 2nd place being KNelson. I'd hate to just "give it to him" by dropping out, but that may happen.
Our 800 IM event should be fun between T.G. and myself. We're seeded #18/#19 in the event, so with the 8 lanes/heat, we should be seeded right near the top of our 3rd to last heat. Hopefully we don't get separated into different heats. We entered with identical times to try to prevent that (10:44.44)

    There are two guys in the 18-24 age group who are seeded with times not too far from mine, so they could be fast. One of those guys is seeded with a 4:15 in the 400 free, so I expect he'll be fast. I was surprised only 16 people entered the 400 IM!

    I see there's a quick 18-24 girl in the 200 fly a couple lanes over from you. Don't let her beat you!

    I'm going to back off on training tonight and tomorrow. Probably 3,000 yards max each day. I'm not going to shave or anything for the meet, but I'd like to at least feel halfway decent!

    I'm looking to take the 200 Fly event for the all-around. The top seed guy, I checked him out, and his freestyle times are comparable to mine (in yards)...so it looks like he entered with yards times into the SCM meet.

    The 400 IM...how bad do you want me there?

    Some of those young guns will be fun to race with for sure. The 400 Free will definitely be a jump start to the meet.

    To be honest, I think you'd be quite a ways ahead of me. I wouldn't be able to do a 4:40 yards like you did last weekend right now and you'd be faster this week.

    400 free is going to be fun. Should be a fast heat.
