10 x 100 FAST Free @ 2:15
  • OMG!!
  • !!
  • OUCH!! <-- me
  • ranged from 1:03-1:05 on #1-9
  • #10 as I was ready to leave, I told the 14 year old behind me to "try and catch me"...bad move on my part (I had intentions of going fast)
  • He was on top of me at the 75 turn and scared the crap out of me...I did beat him to the wall, but his :05 second interval sendoff behind me absolutely crushed me. I did go a 1:02, so Henry was around :57.
  • I asked him if my "try and catch me" is what spurred him on. He said "Yup!" Normally he doesn't swim like that.

    You crack me up!! OMGoodness - I make sure to draft off the kids on those kind of sets! Our goal sets are super hard - we go on about a 6 min interval - going in two waves 10 sec apart for several "heats" - and so are expected to go ridiculously fast. I make sure I am in the second wave every time. I think you are doing awesome!! More power to you!! ("old man" my a**)
