    Well, since your Dad is in Dana Point and you're doing one first with a 50M pool, you should consider the OW event on August 4th -- http://www.nadadoresroughwaterswim.org/w/.

    Thanks for the info! I did find a LCM meet close to my house in June, so I'm going to sign up to get some experience under my belt.

    Re: 2013 Summer Nationals in Mission Viejo

    i would like to swim at "home". logged a trillion zillion meters in that pool.
    ok ok, how about just 120,000lcm in 11 workouts for weeks on end.
    and on the off chance we did a workout in the diving well, seeing the world best diver while you took a breath looking at saddleback mtn in the background was pretty cool too. except for the smog that is.

    however, i had major shoulder surgery on may 3. lots and lots of scar tissue removal, bone spur removal, removed 2 stiches from my 3yo slap tear surgery and then he did the bicep tenodesis. i have progressed to the point where i can dress myself now. lol. swimming in a race is such a far fetched idea at this point.

    As much as I would love to come to MV, it's not in the cards this year. Our family vacation is that week. I much prefer LC competitions to SC but this year it's not gonna happen.

    Yes. It is the Greatest Race Of All Time, but it would be made even better if I could do a dolphin kick instead of a breaststroke kick!

    I think it would be better as backstroke, backstroke, freestyle, and freestyle.

    I'm with ekw on this one!

    That's basically the swim portion of my warmup, though I swim it free, back, free, back.

    So, did it turn out that you DON'T have TOS? Lucky for you, if that's the case! Good luck with your recovery, sunruh!

    i'm trying to recall what might be one the the worst workouts i ever did at MVN...there were so so many

    the 3x1500 fly on 22:30 certainly is way up in the front of the pack. vividly remember that workout from '83.
    looking up at the scoreboard that afternoon and those of us in lanes 6 and 7 going...what does 22:30 mean? and then Scott (McFarland - asst at the time) going ok its 3x1500 in stroke on 22:30. leaving on the next top and the scoreboard will count them off.

    today i'm looking at shower on 2:30 and i might even shave (face) for it! lol

    Re: 2013 Summer Nationals in Mission Viejo

    I'm considering both USMS LCM nationals and the IGLA SCM meet in the Seattle area. As they are less than a week away from each other, I don't really see it as practical to do both (and I don't have enough vacation time or $$$ for both).

    One winning point of IGLA is that I can do more events--no NQT's, everyone can do the same number of events. And they have an o/w option too (in Lake Washington). I'd expect it to be more fun, with a little swimming mixed in. I could swim with our local IGLA team (if they send enough swimmers), swim on my own, or perhaps swim with another team, maybe one from NYC.
    Of course Mission Viejo is somewhat driving distance, and the meet is slightly less expensive. I'd expect it to be a bit of swimming, with a little bit of fun. I'd have to qualify, which I don't, so I'm limited to only 3 events. My team will probably have a few people.


    Timing seems an issue...as others have noted the Pan Am, USMS LCM, and IGLA meets are all close together.


    NOTE: for any PNW forumites, if you're on the fence for USMS nationals, you could always do IGLA

    You are getting a lot of love for this proposal (yes, I join the chorus). Any race organizers on the boards? If Australia can have 800m fly and 1500m backstroke, USMS can have long-axis medley

    Even just a two-stroke medley. Pick any two strokes you want. Split them up any way you want. You just have to swim half the race one stroke and half the other.

    Backstroke and freestyle are the only strokes I've ever been assigned to swim on any serious medley relay, so I think it makes complete sense that these be the components of my individual medley, using sunruh's excellent reasoning above.

    seems likely related to all that shoulder trouble of which you speak. 'hope you recover fully soon.
