I did swim at the NE Masters meet on Saturday, but I had to scratch my last event (50 breast), due to catching a flight and the meet running behind schedule.

400 free, I think 5:17
200 breast, I think 3:12

I'm having trouble accessing the results online.

I think my 400 was about 2 sec slower than last year. I was the slowest person (in a wall lane) in the heat. The guy in the next lane finished in 4:55.

The 200 breast was a bit better. I could only see maybe 1 person the whole race, and I wasn't in a wall lane

overall, it was a good meet. I'll definitely be back next year.

I really felt quite crappy when I first got in the water. sore all over, legs/arms/shoulders. and to think I actually did warm-down after my swims on Saturday...

my trip back turned into a hot (or cold I guess) mess. It was snowing when I left BU, and the T (while it was outside) went through some intense squalls. It was still snowing when I got to Logan, but they said we'd go.
we did go, left the gate on-time. but then waited forever to de-ice, took off about an hour later. got into Charlotte about the same time as my CLT-PHX leg was supposed to leave. I ran to the gate (nearly knocked over a few people, their fault for standing in the middle of the moving sidewalk), only to find out the door was closed, yet the plane was still there (quite frustrating).
while waiting in line for customer service, I called. was initially put on a 1pm nonstop CLT-PHX yesterday. but when I got up to the counter, they talked me into a CLT-DFW, DFW-PHX option. Only I hadn't thought it through...I got into DFW at midnight (then had to deal with lost baggage), and left DFW on a 6am flight. I did get a hotel, at a nasty Doubletree in Irving, and slept for about 2 hours. I have no idea who in their right mind would fly on a 6am flight on a Sunday, but it was pretty full (although up in First there were a few empties). and it was nearly as cold in Texas as it had been in Boston.
At least I got home early, had a surprise that the tree was all setup
Holly (the dog) was very happy to see me too!
And my bag was delivered last night.

    Nice meeting you Tim. That lane 10 was hardly a lane IMHO. But you rocked it.
