The IL state meet was this past weekend. Overall I am happy with my non-tapered swims. I think the races were good, the details need work. It's a good place to be in just over three weeks out.
50 Free - AWFUL start, breakout and turn - again it's the details. Turn needs to increase.
100 Free - One off turn, better turns than the 50, Turn over needs to increase, legs were great.
200 Free - blah who really cares. The next to me totally sandbagged. I thought I was swimming way crappier than I was. It was right about my best time. I haven't swum this race tapered SCY in years.
50 fly - AWFUL turn and finish. Needed an extra stroke on both. I need to channel Phelps not Cavic and drill that wall.
100 IM - first race. First race always sucks. Arms were hurting. Not really a race I focus on or care about.
50 Back - not bad ... need to work on my finish.
50 breast - had fun not worried about times.
Was supposed to have a private pilates reformer session ... she forgot the door over at the gym is a spa. They had a last minute cancelation so I got a massage instead. It was not a great massage but it helped.
Got in the water and did 1,000 yards or so easy. Did a bunch of fly drills, some turns and finishes.
Tonight I have my last training appt. before nats and a solo swim session. Going to go right back into killer mode ... hope my body is in one piece after.
