Monday March 26, 2012

Traveled to San Antonio yesterday morning to join my dad for the Texas State Senior Games at Josh Davis Natatorium.  He took home four gold medals for the weekend, competing in the 90-94 age group, and set a state record in the 500 free.  I won my age group in the 500 free, my only event, with a workout quality time of 5:58.19.  I never saw my splits.  I was hoping to be at least 15-20 seconds faster despite the fact that I was untapered and unshaved, but that was probably not very realistic.  Last Wednesday I was just a couple of seconds off of this time after the first five repeats of the set of 8 x 100.  This morning I swam a 200 free long course in 2:33 (1:15/1:18) at the end of practice, which converts to a 2:12 in yards, so I believe that this is a better indicator of the pace I can hold for a 500 when I am fully tapered and shaved. 

I swam at Nitro this morning with Steve and David this morning, next to Jeff, Anthony, Tom, and Tricia.  Jordan coached.  The pool was set up long course as it was on Friday and Saturday.
