    Using Excel XY scatter one could get a hypothetical estimation. Using historical accounts on the X axis vs seconds on the Y, just follow the graph for the future. Unfortunately I don’t have Excel on my computer. But 50 years would be quite a stretch anyway, especially with recent performances which would skew the forecasted graph to impossible times by 2070, let alone 2050, especially considering water’s effect on terminal velocity. Furthermore we’ve already made much of the improvements in drag for swimming allowed for competition.

    My guess, in order of percentage improved upon:
    W65-69 400IM (4:59.18)
    M65-69 4IM (4:18.81)
    M45-49 4IM (3:47.56)
    W45-49 4IM (4:19.23)
    W65-69 1FR (56.14)
    M45-49 1FR (45.05)
    W45-49 1FR (50.95),
    then finally the least improved upon percentage estimation would be the 65-69 1FR (48.68).

    If y’all end up racing in a therapy pool, at least for the upper hand you’ve acclimated to the heat (to some degree?). 50’s won’t be bad at all though, but it looks like there’s a 200 fl on list, for one

    If you fell apart, then you did it right. Doing 6x50 @ 3:00 off the blocks with my boy Srdan on Saturday, full body suited.

    full tilt sprint. Like I was racing a 50 FL, one at a time. No "opening 50 of 100" feel or anything like that.
