So Didn't Make The 07 Cut
Saturday, March 15, 2008
The finalized 2007 USMS Top 10 Lists are out and although I was ranked number 10 in the preliminary 200 Butterfly list I got pushed out in the final list. No biggie. That is what you get when you only swim the event once in a SCM pool in a year. My time was a 2:28.48 and the 10th fastest time was 2:26.62 a huge difference. I still have my 2006's Top 10's to keep me motivated. If I had only swam the 1500 SCM Free I would have been ranked 6th for the year. Something to think about when I sign up for meets in the future. Although I really don't plan on doing too many meets this year. To be honest I don't like the experience of sitting around and waiting. I get nervous and end up having to pee every 15 minutes. I might just force myself to swim the one at UCLA next month. It's a short meet and so close to home.
In other news I just went to the local USMS website http://spma.net and although they've yet to post the SCM Regional Top 10's they did post the SCY Regional Top 10's for 2007 and I have three top tens. I think they all came from swimming at the UCLA last year. For the 500 SCY Free I came in fourth regionally with a time of 5:28.06. For the 100 SCY Back, wait I swam back and didn't get DQ'ed at the turn, I came in fourth regionally with a time of 1:02.66. Then in the 100 SCY Fly I came in seventh regionally with a time of 1:00.46.
Okay that is enoguht to keep me motivated a few more months.
