++++++++++++++++++++
Overall very pleased I got in 5 solid swims; all will make top ten and currently quite high places, but many more meets to come in SCM season. Best swim was probably the 100 back; overall a strong time and quality splits. 100 fly was strategically out fast and hang on; I knew I did not have much left in me after the 50 so went for it. Worst swim was probably the 200 fly - I succumbed too early to survival fly but probably should have tried to keep going fast for a bit longer. 1:16 vs. 1:29 is terrible. 1:29 is terrible all by itself. YIKES 50 breast split on the 200 IM was like standing still. If in replay, i'd probably be going forward! The good thing is if I can drop 2-5 seconds, that's huge for a 200 IM without any other improvements to the other 3 legs. But if I can go faster on the breast, I can probably get faster on the free as well, maybe 1-3 seconds drop there as well. First 200 IM in many years (not as a 50 fly split).
++++++++++++++++++++++
Next weekend: off to the Ron Johnson in Phoenix, AZ!

    Agreed. Excellent splitting and the time is fast, especially in comparison to the 200.
    Based on the splits, it looks like the 3rd 50 of your 200 could have been quite a bit faster.
    Also, isn't back faster than IM?
    I'm recalling a SCM meet a few years back where I was also 2:42 in the 200. At the same meet I was 1:16 in the 100, so your 1:10 looks like a very strong swim. I assume you listed the events in the order swum??? If so, the 1:10 in the 100 bk is especially impressive. Overall very nice swimming and fun to read about.

    Thanks Karl! I think the 100 back was my best swim of the meet!

    HI KNELSON! I saw you swim in PHX! But I was too busy Doin' Nothing in my deck chair to see you during the meet! I hope to be back in the spring - maybe for the Misty Hyman at Mesa!!!
