Wed., July 4

Rate this Entry
Swim/SCY/Solo:

1100
4 bursts and a build 25, rest easy

15-20 min RC & stretching


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Still feeling somewhat discombobulated. For once, I'm glad my best events aren't on day one of the meet. I think I'm going to need a "get the cobwebs out" swim. 50 free is my first event. I expect that to feel somewhat rough as I've not done any sprint freestyle in practice at all. Or any freestyle really.

I did check in for the 200 back. Off to start packing!

    after 7 starts I can say that the blocks are awesome. Bonus: approx 25% of Masters swimmers are terrified of them.

    Thx Mark! Hope so. Of course if one swims slow in the fastest pool in the world, that is somewhat less than awesome.

    Did it take 7 starts to get used to them? Hope not, I was hoping for maybe 2-3 tomorrow night. What setting did you use?

    You're there already? You're not swimming on Thursday are you?

    Yes, fun is essential. The last week sucked some of the excitement out of me. I'm hoping I get it back upon arrival.

    I used different settings. Didn't matter really. Tomorrow I am racing the 1500

    I didn't realize you were doing a distance free event. I guess the 200 breast didn't appeal? Go forth and kick ass!

    I'm in that too

    Important: the warmup pool has some blocks and some FINA walls. So you can practice on them while the comp pool is racing. Like I just did
