I’ve got 6 individual events that I am swimming this weekend at the USMS Southwestern Zone LCM Championships. I’m not looking for any monster drops, just incremental improvements.
Current Time: 29.48
Goal Time: 28.6

Goal Time: 2:47
The ones I really want to do well in are the 50 free, 50 fly, and the 100 fly. I basically just want to catch up to Tony from the SCAQ Blog in that 50 free hence the goal time suspiciously similar to his seed time. In the 50 fly I really want to break 30, I’ve been close but I haven’t quite made it just yet. The 100 fly in LCM is still very difficult for me since I focus so much on the wall in short course races. I’ve swam 1:09 a couple of times in this race and I’m just looking to drop into the 1:08′s.
The other 3 races I want to do well in, but my version of “good” is basically a guess for 2 of them because I’ve never swam the 100 and 200 free in long course meters. The 200 IM is thrown in there just because I’m a bad decision maker and I think I can do better than I did at Santa Barbara earlier this month.
Beyond swimming fast, my other goal is to have fun! I’m spending the whole weekend in Thousand Oaks and lots of my swim friends will be in attendance. Plus I should be swimming on a few relays which I always think is super awesome! I’ll be around the pool a little bit on Friday, but I won’t be racing until Saturday. If you see me wandering around say hi! Now I just need to work on shaving my head and getting packed…
