    PM LCM @ Miami (OH) University "Summer Classic" Day #1

    Up in Cincinnati to visit my folks for the next three weeks. They take the kids, and I have my own mini training camp with my coach. But before that begins, it's time to see how I do with a TINY bit of rest. Throwing on the tech suit for some races since I am at an amazing facility that I am very intimate with, having competed at the Corwin M. Nixon Aquatic Center on the campus of Miami University for nearly a quarter century!

    Did a LONG easy warm up after not swimming yesterday and driving 10 hours to get to Cincinnati. Did some fine tuning in the warm-up pool right before my swim.

    400 I.M. - 5:18.78 (30.70/36.49/44.03/43.89/44.25/45.87/37.22/36.33) - Well the first 50 of FL felt like the easiest 30.7 of my life. Felt very in control. Definitely felt the training and limited rest on the back half of the race. Had great walls, but for the most part, the speed isn't there yet (that is to be expected).

    Total: 2900

    Working out might be a bit spotty this weekend. Going to be redoing my basement floors (and fixing some spots in the drywall that have gotten wet with the ridiculous amount of rain this spring. Will try to get something quick in the garage Saturday and/or Sunday.
