I feel alright but am now wishing I had some more pool time logged in . I have signed up for the same events as last year and am looking forward to comparing fitness level or lack there of. Self inflicted rough schedule.

Fri night
1500 The will be just a "swim". Some of you distance swimmers may find this as disrepectful to the event and some sprinters may find it ludicrous. I call it warm up for the rest of the weekend.

100 IM, 50 Br, 100 Ba, 200 Br, 400 IM

200 IM, 100 Br, 200 Bk, 400

Only 91 entries. I love Columbia and the pool but have never had a stellar meet there. If I am still alive after the 4IM we have our annual LMSC meeting that I need to run. Tough for me to get pumped for a 4IM late in the afternoon.

    I'll also be doing the 100 IM there. I never did the IM before so I conservatively estimated a 1:35 seed. My other races will be 50 fly and 50/100/200/400 frees.

    The pools does have a reputation for being fast, but some of my worst performances were done there. Hopefully this weekend will be a change of luck to the fast side for both of us.

    Doing the 1500 seems to be a good strategy for nailing the turns just right in that pool for the following days.

    Good luck

    Thanks Steve!

    I will focus on the 3 IM's and the 200 back. I haven't had a descent 100IM or 2BK in awhile.
    The 100 IM is a blast. One of the best reasons for joining masters swimming. You'll do just fine.

    Best of luck and I'll see you there.
