1.5 Seconds

That's the effect, per 100, of the tech suits. Competed in our zones meet at Josh Davis Natatorium in San Antonio this weekend. I swam the 500 on Saturday and the 1000 on Sunday, fully tapered and clipped. I went 5:37.65 and 11:44.15, respectively, 1.5 seconds/100 slower than my best times in a full body tech suit. My 1000 time currently ranks 8th in my age group, but that ranking will change over the next few weeks. On the other hand, everyone else is seeing the same effect after switching to jammers. In the 500 I was within five seconds of Larry Wood. I split both races well; I actually negatively split the 1000, 5:53.06/5:51.09. Here are my 500 splits:

31.68
33.88. 1:05.56
34.33
34.60. 1:08.93. 2:14.49
34.43
34.20. 1:08.63
34.26
33.98. 1:08.24
33.70
32.59. 1:06.29. 2:14.53

5:37.65
