Michael Andrew shocked us all with his swim in the 200 IM at the the Richmond Pro Swim dropping a 1:57.49. What some could not know is that heading into the meet, he’s been experimenting with the Ketogenic Diet. Eliminating carbs from your diet sounds brutal, but Michael does do issues differently. It’ll be exciting to see how the diet functions soon after the summer season is more than.
Michael swam the 200 IM in Richmond to prep for the occasion at the FINA Champions Series. In Guangzhou, China, nevertheless, it was his 3rd occasion of the session, and even though he nevertheless collected $5k in prize cash, he turned in a slow two:04. I’m hoping he can turn it about at the FINA Champions Series in Indianapolis, May well 31-June 1st, soon after finding the Guangzhou practical experience below his belt.
If Michael focuses on a rapidly 200 IM in Indy, what do you believe he can go? I would appreciate see Michael shave a couple of tenths, going 1:57.1-two, possibly even a 1:56.9. But who cares what I think… What do you believe?
