aka "still not a sprinter!"

100 IM I watched the 13 yr old kid clock a 57 low and figured I could get to 57 high. I might have done that except that I completely crashed into the lane line on my backstroke, finishing with a bloody middle finger in 58.74 and in 3rd place, I think. One of the club's 16 year old sprinters (21.6 in 50) was 57.2 and I think someone else beat me. No idea where that time stands in my realm of untapered swims, but I don't think it's great.

The 50 fly was much better @ 25.52, but I got beat by 0.25 by the kid who I had outtouched on the 100 fly. Like the 100, though, having him there made me better.

I loved this meet and, in particular, loved how great my fly felt. Gotta run to officiate the afternoon session.

    Awesome, sounds like a blast. Except for the fly part.

    Now, you know why I don't like outdoor meets for backstroke.

    Otherwise, AWESOME swimming Patrick!
