Results of Utah State Swim Meet

Posted Mar 27 2010 2:38pm
Swam three events: 500 Free, 1650 Free, and 200 Free.
Here are my results
  • 500 Free: 5:42.75 - New PR by 5 seconds

  • 1650 Free: 20:39.24 - New PR by 20 seconds

  • 200 Free: 2:02.46 - two seconds away from PR


I'm definitely happy with the 1650 and 500 times although I was hoping to break my record by a bigger margin, but at least I got PR's right?

Here's video of the 500 .

I took second place overall. I swam next to the 19 year old USU male team captain who beat my by a good margin, but never did lap me. I kept telling myself, when I was his age, he was still crapping his diaper.

Here's video of the 1650 (Really just posting it for JGal's stroke analysis, I don't expect anyone to sit there for twenty minutes watching boring lap after lap!)

From the looks of this table 38 seconds is my base race pace. If I could just pick that up to just under 38 seconds each time, I could lose another 10-20 seconds. Pretty consistent except for a quick adrenaline rush pace at the start and end.

Again, took second place overall. I ALMOST got lapped by James Jonsson on this one. He did his 1650 a split second after I did my 1600. Afterwards he commented that I cut 20 seconds since last time. HOW THE HECK DID HE REMEMBER THAT! What a cool guy.

After my 1650, my triceps felt worn, but not wasted. I knew I could do a 200 in decent time, but my goal of getting under 2:00 appeared to be too much to expect. I ended up getting 2:02.46. Here's video.

Felt great about my 1650, OK about the 500, and a little let down on the 200. Now to gear up for a great open water season, and start running/biking a little. But not too much. I have the 19 mile Bear Lake Swim on July 3rd! If that goes well, I'm thinking about bumping my Channel swim to August of 2011! I also have some ideas about cold water acclimation. But that's a different post.
