    Ande, that's a very nice time for being in-season and not wearing a techsuit.

    How were your SDKs off the final turn? IMO ultimately your goal in this event should be to have 1.0-1.5 sec differential (it should be closer in back compared to other strokes b/c the start is less of an advantage and it is a foot-touch on the turn).

    I know you concentrate a lot of focus on 50s but I think your 100 fly/IM/back could potentially be even better than your 50s.

    thanks Chris,

    I was pleased with that time, it broke my masters trend of swimming slower in finals.

    How were your SDKs off the final turn?
    I did 10 off the start 10 off the 1st turn, 8 off the 2nd turn & 6 off the last turn. I took it out harder & felt weak,
    definitely fading

    I completely agree

    thanks for the encouragement, I'd like to get it together with my 100's, last season they were:
    FL 51.8
    BK 53.3
    IM 53.8
