I woke up at 5am on Superbowl Sunday to drive out to St. Charles, IL for a swim meet. This was the first meet in which I was swimming the 500 Free so I needed to get there early in order to warm up.
Since St. Charles is practically in Iowa, we decided to only swim a certain number of events in order to make it back to Chicago at a reasonable hour. I ended up swimming the 500 Free, 100 Free, 100 IM, and a team relay.
Really enjoyed the 500 Free, and improved my 100 IM time, but slowed down in the 100 Free for the second consecutive meet. Maybe the swimming gods are telling me that I’m not a sprinter.
