RESULTS


Event 1 Men 45-49 400 Yard IM

I Did not know the heats were mixed & seated fastest to slowest.
I thought I had 30 min before my race then suddenly found out I had 4 minutes to get my new suit on & show up at the blocks.
I was tying my suit & putting on my cap as others in my heat were on the blocks.

2 Rasmussen, Anders M 49 Longhorn Aquatic 4:24.24
26.87 58.60 (31.73)
1:32.15 (33.55) 2:05.26 (33.11)
2:42.48 (37.22) 3:20.97 (38.49)
3:53.66 (32.69) 4:24.24 (30.58)

My swim was better than last year, but I kinda wussed out on BR & FR, never really turned on my kick till the last 25 & oh geez did it hurt. Sometime I need to 6 beat kick the whole last 100.
pretty sure if I was more warmed up or psyched I can go faster. On BR I tried a low stroke count with more gliding.

I got 2nd, Congrats to Ross Davis, 46 Woodlands Master Who won with a 4:20.00
26.96 57.36 (30.40)
1:29.59 (32.23) 2:01.57 (31.98)
2:38.54 (36.97) 3:17.10 (38.56)
3:48.94 (31.84) 4:20.00 (31.06

Also congrats to my training partner Jim Sauer who almost broke Mike Manns 55 - 59 NR

3:58.58 (31.54) 4:29.05 (30.47)

For some odd reason I entered both the 400 IM & 1650
Was fairly certain I was going to scratch the 1650
But like a dumb a$$ I checked in & decided to swim it

So I got up to race

1 Rasmussen, Anders M 49 Longhorn Aquatic 18:19.13 20

17:14.77 (32.80) 17:47.38 (32.61) 18:19.13 (31.75)

I felt fairly fatigued from 4 IM & wanted to get out right away, from the pool not out fast on my race, I swam it safe & steady & picked it up some in the last 5.
I was in lane 5, David Alley was in lane 4 & went out in 5:11 at the 500, Dick Worrell was in lane 6, I was ahead of him at first then passed me & never caught him. I thought about sprinting the last 150 or 100 or 50 but didn't.pretty sure I coulda gone much faster in either if I just picked one race.

It was a dumb double & a hard way to begin a 3 day meet.

    How do you endure 18 minutes of sprinting?

    Despite the challenges you did a great job!

    Having to rush to get ready for your first event was your domino distraction of the day. Taking the fly out slightly more relaxed during the first 50 of the 400 IM could have led towards the stronger finish you wanted. Still it was a very solid 400 IM for you. Ross Davis is having a great meet and Jim Saur's IM splits are outstanding particularly with the fly at 1:00.25 & free of 1:01.01. If anyone can do the 400IM/1650 double, you certainly can! Even with the LT overload from the IM you swam the 1650 with respectable effort. Dick Worrell swam a terrific and very impressive 1650. Looking at the Zones meet results, there a lot of great swims.

    Way to "man up" and do the tough double! I suspect that reflecting back some time in the future you will see these as good swims.

    That a great day of swimming! I always say if you sign up for it and pay for it, you might as well swim it. No point in throwing money away.

    Ande,

    It wasn't a dumb double, it was a manly double. You've training enough endurance work over the last few years that this made sense. Great times.

    Hi __steve__

    I wasn't sprinting, if I sprinted I would have gone much faster at first and hurt much worse

    thanks StewartACarroll


    thank you fdtotten
    "domino distraction of the day"
    "Taking the fly out slightly more relaxed during the first 50 of the 400 IM could have led towards the stronger finish you wanted."
    True


    hey Karl_S
    "Way to "man up" and do the tough double!"
    I felt like I was a man down and not likely to do it again
    it's a harsh way to begin a meet

    thanks, it was a flat fee meet

    OK times, the IM was pretty good but I did go, 4:18 a few years ago in a jammer, maybe if I'd only had the 4 IM I would have been tougher, I honestly felt like I wussed out a bit on the FR and didn't start my 6 beat kick soon enough
