Woo hoo! My first step in reaching "off by 50" sprint status has successfully been completed. Over lunch today, after a 150 yd warm-up, i knocked out a 50 yd short-course freestyle swim in 26.74 seconds. The world record is 18:51 (i'd previously reported the American record that is a bit slower). This means my goal was 27.76 seconds. coming in a full second under means that even with potential timing errors, i made my goal! Awesome! Here is a link to a video of the swim if it doesn't play above. Thanks Beek for being the record keeper!
