"CASC Invitational Day #2"
8x50 @ :10 rest odd: kick/drill, even: drill/swim
4x25 @ :10 rest V.S.
100 BK - 1:02.46 (30.31/32.15)
I really only entered this as a throwaway event to be able to "race" before the 200 BR (which was near the end of the meet) and fatigue myself a little to try and race tired in the 200. I also never really swim backstroke, but this WAS a lifetime best by 1.5 seconds.
200 BR - 2:17.06 (30.79/34.64/35.45/36.18)
Not at all upset with this time right now. I definitely felt the fatigue in my legs from the 100 BK and from training in general. However, my stroke felt smooth for at least the first 150. I had some poor turns (including a hand slip, streamline collapse, and mistimed stroke count to turn), but definitely think I am due for a great 200 BR when I taper in December.
800 assorted warm-up/warm-down
It was also tough warming up/down for events after the meet got started because this pool is just an 8 lane venue with a side "therapy" pool. No lines, MAYBE 15 yards long, and total chaos when 30 people are trying to use it at the same time. I did get in a proper 500 EZ during the 10 minute break which came 30 minutes AFTER I swam the 100 BK! I had no proper warm-up before both events though.
