2015 Milford Meltdown meet


2015 Milford Meltdown meet

Milford always puts on a great short course meters meet.  It's well attended and hosted in an above average facility.  Admittedly the free food and beverages don't hurt this review!  I showed up at the last second to deck enter.  "The last second" turned into 6 minutes after the deck registration ended.  I received permission to beg to office staff to accept my registration.  They took pity on me and allowed me in the meet.  I signed up for the 50/100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Fly, 100 IM.  It was a full lineup for my current training schedule.  After a brief warmup and some test starts, I was ready to race.  First up was my 50 Fly.  I had some decent competition.  It was a sloppy race, hitting the wall in a 26.82.  A month ago I was a 26.79, a negligble difference but still a far cry from my 2008 time of 25.05 or even my LCM time in 2012 of 24.59.  Other times were:

100 IM SCM: 1:03.44 (27.87)
50 Back SCM: 28.35
100 Free SCM: 57.85 (26.98)
50 Free SCM: 25.17

I'm still encouraged at my motivation level and I'm committed to improving.  I have about a month before the state meet.  I'm planning on some times faster than last year.
