Holy crap, not sure what happened on that last 50. It did NOT feel like I died that hard. I felt "labored" going out, like I had no easy speed. Overall not a bad swim. Was hoping to be 2:03 or better, which if I had paced the last 50 like the rest of the race, would have been no problem.

500 FR - 5:10.61 (58.0/1:02.8/1:02.9/1:03.5/1:03.2)

Really would have liked to have been under 5:00 already, but that might have been wishful thinking this early in the season. Never really felt like I got going in the race. It didn't help that this was the last event, and I was in the last heat, and When I dove in the water it was after 10:00 pm. Past my bedtime and still hadn't swam yet! I also had to sit through hours of 200 BK/200 BR/500 FR between events. I am making excuses, I know, but all in all, I will take this swim for what it is: a sign I am most certainly NOT in the best race shape yet.

Add in about 1900 assorted warm up and warm down between events.

Total: 4200

    Sometimes you just have swims like these. They are by no means bad, but just not what you wanted. Your 500 was pretty consistent which is a good sign of things to come. Just looking at your splits on the fly it looks like you went out too quick which is very easy to do early in the season.Good job overall though.
