Didn't drink or stay out too late last night but did a lot of walking. Legs may feel it today.
I entered the 50 fly, 100 back, 50 free, and 50 back. Also swam 2 relays with my THT teammates.
Warm up consisted of about 1000 m of swimming kicking and drills with a few short, fast 25's off the blocks thrown in.
50 Fly: went 35.12. Really died an the last 10-15 meters or so. I need to spend a little more time swimming distances longer than 25's.
100 back: Went 1:23.48. This was an awesome swim!! I had a great start with about 12 sdk's before breaking out. I felt smooth and relaxed the whole way and finished feeling like I could have just kept on going at that speed. I probably should have pushed it a bit harder. My time was about a second slower than my best for this event.
50 free: Went 31.83. about a second slower than my best for this distance.
50 back: Went 37.68. About half a second slower than my best. again a swim that felt really good and smooth but not as relaxed as the 100.
I was very pleased with my times. All were faster than I swam last year at this meet so I know I'm in better shape than I was last year at this time. I'm hoping I see even more improvement at Indy.
