Srdan: 1:12, 1:13-, 1:13, 1:15, 1:17, 1:15, 1:15, 1:16, 1:14, 1:10 (he pulled the last 5)

Solid set by all. Last record I have of doing this set LCM was on 5/1/2019, and there I was: 1:09-, 1:08+, 1:09, 1:09+, 1:10-, 1:10, 1:10, 1:11-, 1:09+, 1:08+ so I was happier with this iteration of the set. I fell off towards the end, but the water temp and the heat started to get to me. Always blows my mind how much more difficult this set is LCM over SCY!

    Interesting to state your tenth 100 at 1:10 or faster is “falling off”. If you did 11 on 2:00 would it change the average much?

    Let's just say I don't think it would have been another 1:10. I started falling off after #8. I don't just mean the times. My stroke was unraveling, I was doing the same number of SDKs off each wall (5 and 4 respectively), but travelling shorter and shorter distances each time. On the last two, Trip flipped even with me at the 50, so my opening half of each 100 was getting worse and worse, so I was just throwing the kitchen sink at the second 50 on the last two 100s and praying I made it to the wall before I fell apart. I think I would have been 1:11s for 1-2 more, then 1:12s, and probably would have settled at around 1:13 in perpetuity.

    I think I (trip here) can add some color here.
    did you happen to see the 400 free relay in Beijing?
    I was coming like lezak. Calvin was toast. he might have been 1.25 if he had to do another one.
