Race Report: All-Out Swim

While I can almost always wish I had swum faster, I had a pretty perfect day at the Downtown Swim Club's All-Out Swim meet, hosted long course at the Varsity Pool at the University of Toronto: I got to swim two of my favorite events - the 200 fly and 400 IM - and managed not to die on either of them, The schedule worked out perfectly to pop out for a lovely lunch with my second daughter, Monica, who happened to be up from Hamilton for the weekend, I left motivated to continue my progress towards my end of the season (May) goals at the Canadian Masters Nationals And even more excited to see how I'll do on those events in Short Course Metres in a couple of weeks at the Steven Forsey Invitation

Training Table: On the right track

I had a very solid month of training in January, at least in terms of consistency of being in the water and swim volume/effort. There were some flashes of faster swimming that encouraged me and today I repeated my 3 x 300 Test Set at my LA Fitness. I was much improved from early December, and closing in on times I had done back in January of 2016, a year when I raced very well. Standard Warmup (1,750 yards) 1 x 400: IM, kick-drill by 25s 4 x 100: on 1:30, freestyle swim, descend wearing a Finis snorkel In 2018, I was 1:12, 1:11, 1:08, 1:04 2019-08-01 was 1:17, 1:13, 1:11+, 1:09 2019-12-02 was 1:13+, 1:11+, 1:09+, 1:07 2020-02-03 was 1:15, 1:11, 1:08, 1:04 8 x 50: on 0:50, w/Finis Z2 Zoomer
