Day 3 recap

The third and final day of the 65th annual Husky Invitational. Atmosphere at the pool tends to die a little bit on the last day of the meet. But not in the nanook corner. With 3/3 pbs in the 200 back and Victoria as the first seed for the finals, breaking the college record in the heats. Another first seed for the 100 free finals and a 3 second pb from the one and only swimmer in the 200 fly. 
The mile brought more good news, with the 6 swimmers all swimming best times. The mile is swum after all the other heat swims are done. So it's like a separate session on its own in between heats and finals. It's good that way, no annoying sprinters in the warm up pool. I've never swum the mile before so I guess any time was a pb. Based on my entered converted time from opens in march it was almost 22 seconds faster. The other cool thing about it was that I split the 1000 faster than I had previously. When I swum it back in November I went 10.40. This time I swum it in 10.32 which means I got two B cuts from one race. Now that's efficient!
It's easy to compare these times to converted ones, but it's really apples with oranges.

This is BEFORE the warm up got brutal. 1000 swimmers in 2 25y pools makes for some close friends.
