St. Nicks Swim Meet @ GA Tech
Short Course Meters

600 Swim
200 Kick
400 Pull (until they told me I can't use paddles in warmup)
200 Drill

4-5 dive 25's

Results (in order of my events):
800 FREE: 10:15.37 (2nd in age group)
50 FREE: 26.61 (2nd in age group)
200 FREE: 2:12.41 (2nd in age group)
100 FREE: 59.62 (1st in age group)
400 FREE: Scratched (probably should have swam for points for team & high point)

I think the meet was an overall success for me. For one, I wasn't rested at all. Two, I didn't wear a tech suit, matter of fact I wore a Speedo Endurance Square Leg that I train in. Three, I dropped two seconds in the 50, 3 in the 100, 8 in 200 Frees from a year ago in Columbia.

Next up....possibly Auburn Meet in Feb or St. Pat's in March. I will now focus on 500 Free down. After my 800 I can see that I REALLY need a training partner/team to be able to train for distance. My 50 and 100's felt great...just need to keep working on turnover, endurance speed, and those quality test sets.

- Goal was stroke work while still getting in yardage
- Held a little better than a 1:20 pace on first set and about 1:13 or so on second set
- Its become pretty evident that I'm a right side dominant breather, almost to the point of breathing every stroke. I think all the OW swimming has alot to do with it but its comfortable. Kinda weird as I was a very good bilateral breather in HS and college. Now breathing to left is very awkward. I'm sure it has alot to do with my body/hit roll, but the right side is now natural without wearing my shoulder out.

Swam with the "Swim with Pete" group up at Red Top Mountain. Only did two laps of the course and didn't feel all that great, my back is bugging me a bit. So anyway, did about 2.5 miles and it took about 45 minutes. I was 2nd fastest of the whole group (about 50). We were being led by Meghan, a former Florida Gator swimmer, she was quick!

Swam with the OW/Triathlete group from Concourse Athletic Club this morning up at Red Top Mountain on Lake Allatoona. I led the whole group by quite a large margin and completed 3 laps (1.2 Mile each) of the open water course in 1 hr 15 min. I really took it easy and worked on stretching my stroke out. The first lap of the course I bi-lateral breathed. After that I was warmed up and could really just breathe to the right side. My stroke felt really good and stretched out today for some reason. I guess a day off yesterday really did me good. My legs however are still KILLING me from weights on Thursday (hadn't done legs in about 2 months).

2009 GA Game 5K Open Water Swim:

1:02:03 - 3rd Place 35-39 Age Group

Swim was at Lake Acworth, a 90 Acre enclosed lake that is part of Lake Allatoona. Water was dark/brackish and about 82-83 degrees. Sunny.

Really didn't feel all that good the first 1/2 of the race. I also had a few people holding back and drafting off me. Once I let them by close to the 1/2 mark I tried a different line because they looked to be too far to the inside whereas my line looked good. Perhaps my speed just wasn't there, especially since I was swimming alone at that point, and I was always 20 yards behind those two. Finally did find my stroke, which was breathe right only, and got into a little rhythm that was enough to hold off one guy that was close to me with about 900 meters to go. I haven't seen the final results but my mom and wife seem to think I was about 10th or so. Will post the final results once I get them.

So that's it, the last OW swim (3rd) for me of the summer. 2 first places and 3rd, not bad for my first go with open water. I'll now just train and work on losing some more weight, cardio, core exercises and swim on my own again until probably Sept when I think I may join Stingray Masters.....I really need to work with a group and compete in workouts to improve my speed.

Saturday- June 13, 2009



So had the 4.5 Mile River Rat Race in Chattanooga this morning. It was in the TN river and I would say the water temp was about 76 maybe, very nice. Weather was perfect, partly cloudy and a little windy. 75 total participants between the 4.5 mile and 1.2 mile swim with about an even split between the distances.

So we started at a boat launch up river with us just standing at the end of the ramp and had a whistle start. I was in the front pack of about 10 or so swimmers, but in the back. The kids at the front were high school USS swimmers. I really felt horrible for the first 30 minutes. My stomach was a bit tight, breathing and stroke off and a few folks pasted me. About 1/2 into it we came around a bend and straight into a solid wind. The wind hitting the river with a swift current caused the river to feel more like an ocean for the next 20-25 minutes. It was really rough with no regular pattern to the waves. I mixed in a little backstroke and even some dolphin kicking under the waves. However this was the time to power through it and I actually caught a few people that had passed me earlier. I pushed the last 1/2 mile to the finish and passed a few folks as well. By the end I felt decent, your spirits tend to lift when you see the finish in sight.

My unofficial time was 1 hr 03 min and 10 sec I think. I'll post the official when they get posted on the net. I was first place in my age group (30-39) and I'm not sure where I was overall, maybe 10th or so? I think the winning time last year was 1:18 or so, so you can see how fast the current was this year. The overall winning time was 58:24 this year. We were actually so fast that we passed the 1.2 mile swim group before they started....the organizers did figure that the current would be THAT fast. Anyway, great event, great location, and I was asked by the organizer about helping out next year. This COULD turn into a really big event if they wanted it to.

Next up.....GA Games 5K in Lake Acworth July 12 I think.

Friday- June 12, 2009

I just got in Lake Allatoona where we have a little family cabin and swam about 30 minutes just to loosen up in preparation for tomorrow's River Rat Race in Chattanooga. I'll be up at 4:30am to ride up there with my brother. Start is about 7:30am and its a 4.5 mile swim. I'm expecting it to take 1:20-1:30.

Open Water Day:

Had to prepare a little for a phone interview tomorrow so I hit the lake late this afternoon. Did a few back and forth of the lake (about 600-800 yards is my guess each way). The first back and forth I just swam free stretching out (but not too much, I have to watch for boats as well, although its fairly quiet during the week). Then did another back and forth with just paddles.

Later we needed to pull out boat out of the water since it wouldn't start and stranded us last weekend. So with no one up there to tow us I pulled the boat with my brother in it by a rope and with my fins. It was only 12 minutes to get it over the boat ramp, but its heavy and about 500-600 yards away....you'll feel it in the hamstrings! I found the best technique was to loop the rope around my chest and do breast with freestyle kick with the fins.

So a little unconventional workout but it was nice. Will hit the pool tomorrow for about 3500 LCM just working on some technique and a few pace 100's probably in prep for the weekend.

-I was DEAD after the first set of 300's....too much sun this weekend! I just did the best I could which wasn't too fast
-I'll be tapering off the yardage and effort as the week progresses since I have the 4.5 OW swim this weekend in Chattanooga.

Saturday- June 6, 2009

Took to the lake today (Allatoona) with the family. Took the boat out and found a nice big cove. While everyone else played around the anchored boat I took off for an OW swim around the cove and back. Ended up being about a 35 minute swim. THEN the boat wouldn't start so I ended up swimming quite a bit more pulled the boat from the shore as it drifted in towards shore. We ended up getting a tow back to our dock luckily. Spend most of the day in the water with the kids, so it was a good "unoffical" workout.

Day off tomorrow, but I'll be back at the lake.
