jon smiley, tyler, marcio, kendall, kristine, erin, amy, max, larry, fred lemaistre, & ???

arrived at 8:00 am

felt good in warm up

decided to not swim the 4 x 50 medley relay, our chances to break record was iffy plus I wanted to be fresh for the 100 IM

wore a brand new Blue Seventy Nero Comp
which I love & will sorely miss if (when) it's banned for masters

went 1:00.14
splits 27.02 33.13
45 - 49 MEN'S WR was 1:00.29
went 1:00.32 last year
bk to br turn coulda been better
SDKs Fl 8 , bk 10, not many on FR
really hurt bad glad it wasn't a 200


50 Breaststroke
went 31.50
swam right next to tyler "the miler" blessing
he went 31.6 so he told me he got razzed
I'm just glad he swam a 400 fr before the 50 br

100 Backstroke skipped to rest up to lead off the 4 x 100 medley relay

4 x 100 medley relay (200 - 239 age group)

    27.0 is a very fast first 50. Looking forward to your 50 back/fly tomorrow.

    Closet breaststroker!

    Now we get to see if you'll go even faster in LB with more rest. And perhaps a superior pool?

    Nice 100 IM. Do you think WR might deserve bold? On my blog they would be in bold scrolling blinking multicolored print, but maybe it gets boring when you set so many

    I missed Tyler at the DAM meet, but Mark Glass was knocking out some fast swims in the 35-39 age group. Thankfully both are currently not in my age group, but it is great to see fast swimming.

    Good luck tomorrow.
