Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!

Tonight the team just did a splash around workout. About 3000 LCM total. The only thing I did that was intense was the initial 800 Free of the warmup. I always like to get out and bash through this opening freestyle, for some reason it feels good. After that I tried not to hit triple digits with my heartrate the rest of the workout. Very very easy with little to no effort. The kids couldn't figure out why I was going at the back of the lane. They'll learn one of these days.

I'm entered with my best times in the SWIMS database (which goes back to about 2000), most of which are from when I was 24 years old, but a few of them are from the past couple summers. I'm swimming 'close enough' to these times, but some may be unachievable. No worries here.

My events:

Saturday: (Day off from work)

***Will be participating in the unsanctioned unofficial coaches relay on Saturday. The team raised over $30,000 in the swim-a-thon this year, and the coaches were "forced" into swimming at the meet this summer in a relay. There are 4 female coaches and two male coaches on the team. They decided to make a men's and women's team. The men recruited another swimming dad, and also myself. John told me they'd have to "handicap" me to make it fair though. I came up with the idea to swim in jeans and a t-shirt. It'll be fun. We're also doing a 200 medley relay, so I'm going to be doing a 50 Fly in jeans and shirt. Even more fun. I think I'll go for the bellyflop entry off the start as well.

The last two events will be fun...or not fun, we'll have to see. Notice the event #'s. I'll be in the last heat of the 200 Fly, then step right up into the 1500 Free 1st heat (swum fast to slow). There's no scheduled break, but maybe I can 'take my time clearing the pool'.

    To all them youngsters, must be like the mysterious wise (Fu- Manchu) man one the team.

    Have a good competition with all events.



    Did they use that kid's 25 m seed for the 50 (13.63)?

    I want to see that 15 year old who can do a :27 100 free!

    I think the 50 and 100 free are the only events where you'll be off those seed times. A couple events I think you'll be faster, for example the 400 IM.

    That is one full boat of swimming this weekend. Good luck.

    I didn't realize they would let you use times that far back in the SWIMS database.

    Good luck with the tortuous double. Sounds impossible to me.

    Yeah, there are some speedy kids, but I don't think he'll be going that fast! We'll have to see how fast I really go. I have been feeling a lot better in the pool, and I'm not sick like I was at the last meet.

    That's how I roll... No pain, no gain, or something like that, right? I even backed off on my event selection. I could've done 5 events a day plus 2 on Friday. I'm only doing 2, 3, and 4 events per day

    In SCY meets, I had my coach edit my times since they were so far off my current masters times, but in LCM events, my times were somewhat close to when I was younger (but still old). I never knew there was any limit on how far back the times could be pulled from. But in the case of USAS kids, they tend to get faster as the get older. Us people are the opposite, except for the 50+ sprinter female group.
