The 100 free was given a body swerve in this morning's session, thought I would save myself for the 400 free; shouldn't've bothered.
Clearly I wasn't focused on this meet as I went to change into my racing gear and discovered I'd packed it away in the car. Fortunately I found an old training suit in the bottom of my bag and hastily bought and assembled a pair of Speedo Swedish goggles and I was set.....
For a fairly spectacular personal worst only about 20 seconds slower than Eindhoven which was long course!
I often think that the mark of a great meet is by how long it takes you to walk around the pool, as you keep having to stop to catch up or chat to friends. In terms of navigating about the poolside, this weekend was simply epic.
"Too Tall" Twyman wrote about the attraction of the event and being a masters swimmer extremely eloquently in the Guardian's Swimming Blog on Friday see "holding back the tide"
