I can fly kick (in fins), but trying to put the top half of the stroke in play somehow switches my legs into breaststroke kick- I'll have another try this evening.

I think if the IM is to be a balanced race we'll need to handicap the breast and fly refusniks, catch-up drills maybe instead?

I also think (following up something Coach B said earlier) we may need to tinker with the schedule:

100m FC: 4 races (3 heats + final) @ 2min/race = 8 mins

400m FC: 4 races (3 heats + final) @ 8min/race = 32 mins

100 IM: 4 races @ 4min/race = 16 mins

150 relay 3mins

Gives a total of 59 minutes of swimming.  My estimates on time may be a wee bit out, but possibly just do the 400s on a 'best time' basis?

I've been desperately seeking a way that i can coordinate combining this and a family event i have to attend - alus it's just not feasible  (it's not as though there wasn't enough advanced warning! - but family does take priority)

im gutted to not be there - should be a cracker!

word of warning - Meldy has been totting up the slights all year - me thinks there may be some retributions in order this weekend! haha
