Masters Swim Club Mini Meet

Posted Mar 01 2009 12:00am

Yesterday we had our second masters club mini meet. It was more of a set of test pieces for various distances, separated into events swam on a short course complete with starts from the blocks, for the brave, and timers.

After learning from participation in our last meet, even short events can take the good out of you, so I decided to skip the 1000m and concentrate on setting some good pace times in the sprints. The catch was that I ended up with a draw that saw me in the second 50m heat, then climb out of the pool and go directly into the 100m. So as I stood on the block, I was still shaking from my previous race.

My third event was not much better as I had only enough rest time to run the second 100m heat before I had to jump into the 200. After that it was all over for me, and all I had to wait for was the pizza to arrive.

For anyone interested, here were my times50m Free 39.14
100m Free 1:29.05
200m Free 3:18.29

Of course the pros and semi pros out there may not be impressed, but I was somewhat pleased given my test set on Thursday where I did my cruise interval test piece, and determined my CI time of 1:44, so my sprint time was 15 seconds faster for 100m. If only I could hold that pace for 1500 or 2000.
