"Central Section Region VIII Championships Day #3"
200 BR - 2:10.58 (29.14/32.36/34.23/34.86) - Other than mistiming a few walls, this race went really well. I dropped almost .8 from my previous lifetime best which dates to late 2009. Taking it out in a 1:01.5, that was the easiest 1:01 I ever swam in my life! The time also earned me a second swim tonight. Our Sectional has an "18 and under only" rule for the C final, so to make it back I have to place top 16 or I get auto scratched (this happened to me yesterday in the 100 BR).
100 FL - 54.35 (24.91/29.44) - I was the FL leg on the B 400 medley relay today. I felt great on the opening 50, but really shortened up badly on the last 25. I would have liked to be 53 or better, but I am ok with this swim.
200 BR (v2.0) - 2:10.48 (29.13/32.51/34.06/34.76) - Again, a couple of my walls were off (jammed two and over extended on one), but I moved up from 16th to 13th and shaved another tenth off my lifetime best, so I will take it. At this point, the fact that I could put together two excellent 200s in one day is a win.
