    I hear ya, Orca. NQT's are so far out of reach for me now, I don't stand a chance. The last year I qualified was in 2014. Since my hip surgery and other medical issues, I'm way off the mark.

    Hi ElaineK Last year I q timed in 5 now it's just 3 and they are faster. At 71 1/2[ my age ] aren't those other swimmers due to slow down???

    Everybody slows down at different ages I guess. In some cases (like mine this year), physical issues prevent me from training as much race pace or volume as I would like to train.

    I started the training season later than usual this year due to us returning from a long vacation and it is taking a while to get back into the "swim of things"
