I was very excited to have a social swim with Speedo scheduled today. Left the house with water in hand. The only problem was that I forgot my backpack. Whoops! I chatted with Pete for awhile and then drove home and found it on the garage floor. But I had nothing else planned for early afternoon, so headed back to the pool to get in a short solo workout.

Swim/SCY/Solo:

600 various
10 x 25 shooters w/fins @ :35
6 x 50 fly drills @ 1:00-1:10
25 EZ
4 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
50 EZ
4 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
75 EZ
2 x 25 AFAP backstroke from the blocks
-- went 12 high and 12 mid from a rolling start moving after the clock ticked past 59
-- 75 and 125 EZ after each
-- was a touch faster on the one that was shallower
-- 16 kicks, need to take 15 with kneeskin
50 EZ

Total: 1800

I felt pretty good in the pool today. I can tell I've rested the legs for a week. I'm glad the meet is Sunday to give me another day to recover from ART.

Here are the links to the psych sheet and heat sheets:

I got one wall lane, which reflects my usual 25% rate for end lanes. But I swam pretty fast at this pool last year with a couple races in end lanes in the shallower end. I don't really have any time expectations for the meet. Though I don't think I'll swim slow having just had a much needed easy recovery week. I may skip the 50 free as there's only 20 minutes between that and the 50 fly.

-- I do love single arm fly for kicking timing.

--This says supposedly you're supposed to wear the FS3 6-8 x before the target race.
-- I'd love to get my hands on a HS reject suit to see how it feels in the water.

    They put the wrong seed time for me in the 50 br. I emailed Charlie about it. I don't want to be in the fastest heat lane 4 for it! I'm in lane 1 for quite a few events. I will look for you on Sunday.

    If you emailed him earlier today, he may be able to change it before printing. He's very responsive and helpful. And agree, no fun to be the fastest seed surrounded by men by accident. I don't like it (surrounded by guys) period, and hence try to avoid it. You can really get jostled around, especially in fly.

    See you Sunday!

    Looks like a fun meet - enjoy it. I think it is neat when a bunch of forumites get together.

    Oh, and just a short note of thanks for being such an encouragement to so many of us out here in usms land.

    Aw, thanks Mike.

    Meets are much more fun with forumites and friends!

    Is chivalry dead? Speedo didn't let you borrow a suit and goggles?

    Thanks Quick. We'll see, it's a very early meet for me and I have to drive a bit to get there. (sprinter whine)

    Very first words out of his mouth -- "I can lend you a suit. No problem."
