Count down to USA Nationals (14 days)
In 14 days will be the start of USA Swimming Nationals in Palo Alto, California on the beautiful campus of Stanford University. At nationals on this day will consist of an easy warm up in the am and a quick clip to get a different feel for the evening session. At night I will be swimming the 400 free relay with a relaxed effort but precise execution of some specifics for my 100 free race later in the week. It’s a great way to get into the meet with a 400 free relay!
In practice today we worked on some aerobic efforts to keep the heart rate up and flush out sectionals. We then did a few starts and turns to work on our lines off the block and wall and finished off with a few good finishes. Today was the perfect David Marsh taper practice with good training mentally and physically but not overly taxing efforts!
I can’t tell you how stoked I am about Nationals this year! The count down has begun to a great meet in peak performance shape!!
