Went to Salt Lake City UT for a Masters meet at the South Davis Recreation Center. Very nice pool.
Warm up with a mix of swimming, kicking, and drilling. Did a few 50 builds then 2 fast 25's off the blocks followed by about 5 minutes of easy swimming. Total around 1000 y.
1st event: 200 backstroke - 2:39.35
This felt pretty good and I was a bit disappointed with the time which was about 3 sec slower than my best.
Splits were 37.75-40.68-41.03-39.89.
2nd event: 50 fly - :32.52
Way slow!!! felt like I was spinning the whole way.
3rd event: 100 free - 1:04.04
WTF!!! a practice time!
4th event: 50 back - 33.72
Another practice time!
I haven't been doing speed work and it shows. Another meet this coming weekend in Boise Idaho. A dual sanction meet with the kids. Should be fun. Hope my times are a little faster. Will do basically the same events except will do 100 back instead of 200.
Total yardage with warmup, races and swimdowns - 2400 yards
