SPLASH FOR CA$H

Having been gone so long, I decided to wait until I had a good time to report.
$10 bucks paid to challenge swimmer if you make the goal time, within range
$20 buck paid to coach if you are out of the range
My stated goal time: 28.9 SCM
Coach's grace time: .5 spanning your goal time
Range: 28.7 to 29.2
My time: 28.69
So technically, I was out of the range!
Consider it a penalty for setting too modest a goal time by .01!
I am going to swim our 1-day SCM meet, and the order of events totally sucks for 4 x 50ers. The fly/free and breast/back are back to back. So i'll do that anyway, and i've been "training" to go fast 50's in that order within 2 to 4 minutes. If 2 mins, then I typically do a 25/5sec/25. If longer, then I do a blast-o 50. I have been going 31/32 on the flys, and 29/30 on the frees; 40/41 on breast and 35/36 backs, so I think I can still muster a strong 2nd 50 for each pair in the meet. I'll probably also do the 100IM, and just gut it out with anything I have left. If I can do pretty solid 1:19 and under in workouts, I would say that's anywhere from 1:09 to 1:14 in a meet.
