Four weeks to race time, my entries are approved ...
and my ambitions are high:
Minimum Goal - Achieve my best "Age 50+" time
Stretch Goals - Break the Canadian National Records in at least two more events:
Re-break the 400 IM record and get under 5:00
Break at least one of the 200, 400 & 800 free, or the 200 fly
BHAG - Get as close as I can to 49 year old me in my 400 IM - how close can I come to the 4:52.09 I went in as recently as fall of 2016? Close enough to dip under the curren Masters World Record of 4:51.97?
And, while I will remember the big lessons from my recent meet in Houston ...
Rest, rest, rest
Stay loose and have fun
Enjoy the joy of being able to race, especially in what looks like a gorgeous pool at the University of Laval (picture sourced - https://peps.ulaval.ca/installations/ )
... I find myself unable to shy away from making ambitious goals.
