    I did it a couple weeks ago, but I have no one willing to sit for an hour and clock me. I took the splits off of my Swimovate watch.

    My dad did me a solid and timed me and took splits. I think 5500 would have been realistic if I had swam in a yards pool and had the extra 20 flip turns. Not an option in Canada. My lane rental cost more than the FINA submission fees. I rented 1 lane for 90 mintues to ensure a quality environment.

    Still waiting on FINA for their 2016 Top 10s. Should be in 35-39 8Free/2Fly in SCM.

    My gut says my swim will be #1 in 40-44 unless Sean Justice throws down

    That ought to be good for the win...unless you are in the 50-54 age group (Erwin, Shaffer, and others have been tearing that event up for decades)...congrats. I was considerably short of that but was hampered by doing mine in a glorified jacuzzi.

    Well, I found a pool 150 miles away that was colder than mine, obtained a hotel, only to find out it was closed for maintenance the following day. I ended up doing it later that afternoon in a (hot) pool less than a mile from my house. I'm insane!

    Sadly, I think they changed the rules and I am bumped up to the 50-54 (prematurely I must say).

    Justice, as far as I know, does one USMS meet per year (Ron Johnson meet at ASU) so little chance of him doing a postal (but perhaps you've inspired him--number one rule of postals: never call out anybody before entries close....ha!). As far as I know, he trains with and goes to USA meets (not sure if that's apathy towards USMS, pride, or compassion on us mortals).

    Last time I raced at ASU was Jan 95 and it was SCM AZ Sr Circuit. Swam the 800 beside Jeff Rouse when he swam with PSC.

    Six people from my Masters group did it last week. I did 2500 which is hardly competitive but is a PR for me. This time last year I couldn't even swim that far. None of our swimmers who are actually competitive even did it.

    I'm the only one from my masters group that did it. I did it Saturday. 2925 yards. I'm looking forward to seeing how I ranked (near the bottom, I know) AND getting the swim cap.

    Re: 2017 Hour Swim

    Next week there is a 2h scm swim up that I want to start in.

    I did it last year for the first time and finished with 7150m.

    it´s kind of boring but i felt like becoming one with the water. At the end,somehow the need to breathe became less and less
    All the tumble turns made me a bit dizzy too.

    I am a late starter to swimming an never raced any.

    Are the results posted anywhere yet? I couldn't find them so probably not, but they said by the 27th, which is tomorrow.

    Re: 2017 Hour Swim

    As of this past week, they were still sending me reminders to get it in. I had begun to fill out the data last month, but realized it needed a timer helper, but I only had the splits off my Swimovate watch, so I abandoned it.

    Nothing so far. It said by MAR 20. Then they changed it to MAR 27

    I did the 7200m in 2h.
    1:40 each 100m.

    I put an alarm on my Garmin Fenix every 300m.
    On pace i had 5min for each.
    Worked out fine

    Re: 2017 Hour Swim

    If I had been able to enter my splits, I might have finished 61st of 69 with 2275. Next year I'll be in a new age group but I wouldn't have fared much better. Got some work to do before then. I did notice though, that there was only 1 person, male or female, from ADMS, a guy I met at both winter meets this year, and I do recall discussing it with him there. There might have been more Adirondack swimmers but I don't know the associated clubs.
