That’s how many swimmers are registered for Long Beach this weekend! I got an e-mail from the host club tonight about the meet and here’s the rough time-line:

    Friday is currently scheduled to run from 10:00 AM to 7:15 PM

    Saturday is currently scheduled to run from 9:00 AM to 6:55 PM

    Sunday is currently scheduled to run from 9:00 AM to 7:46 PM

That’s a pretty serious spread! I think I’m going to keep pretty busy through Saturday but Sunday might not be so hot for me. Since I have such a long drive home on Sunday night I might just split after my 100 butterfly so I get home at a semi-reasonable time… we’ll see.

Psych sheets were posted today and you can find them here. Now that I’ve had a little time to digest the seed times in my age group it would appear that I have my work cut out for me. Good chance I won’t be repeating my 5 for 5 showing at San Luis Obispo… unless I manage to drop 6 seconds per 50 in all my events! In my events I’m seeded towards what I would call the bottom, but ultimately I’m just out to have fun at this meet. I think I’m going to get real serious about the upcoming SCY Nationals in Clovis. I’m much more comfortable in yards and I’ll have had a lot more time back in the pool by the meet in May. Plus I’ve been toying with the idea of increasing my time in the weight room which I think would really help me in the pool.


Tonight I got in a swim that wasn’t as long as I wanted but that was because I had Heidi with me and I took a few breaks to help her with her swimming. She’s really coming along. She did a few lengths of the pool non-stop freestyle. Breathing right is still the sticking point but it’s coming along.

My swim consisted of the following:

Warm Up
500 free

Repeat 2x
50 fly
50 breast

100 IM
100 breast
100 free
50 breast
50 fly
100 free
100 IM

200 Cool down

1400 yards total

My swim was a little disjointed but it’ll do! Hopefully I can get a more solid swim in tomorrow.
