Yay...finished my first meet in about 22 years yesterday!
It was a SCY meet with about 50 entries. I had no times posted so I had to swim in the slower heats. To be honest, I had no idea what my times would be. My girls came to cheer me on, although it was a time-trial more than anything.
I swam in four individual events plus a 200 free relay. 50 and 100 breast and 50 and 100 back.
I won all four of my events for my age group and I won both breaststroke events overall.
In the 50 breast, I reverted to my old-school style; rather flat without much undulation, my head barely submerging on the recovery. Although, I did try to keep my knees narrower than I had in the past to try to keep my profile tighter.
I did more undulation in the 100 and tried to ride the wave. Don't know if it helped, but I didn't really gas out. I also don't feel I pushed to much. Not really in either event because there was no competition in the first heats.
I did a 34.06 in the 50 and a 1:18 in the 100. So, as I see it, I'm not far off from the SCY qualifying times. A good coaching session once in a while, breaststroke-focused workouts, more cardio work and about 25lbs to lose, and I'm sure I can drop the time and then some.
