MINNESOTA – Connor Jaeger swam just his third in-season 1650-yard free with his win tonight at the Arena Grand Prix in Minnesota.
Jaeger talked with Swimming World about the specific mindset it takes for someone to swim a competitive 1650.
Jaeger also explained how tonight felt a bit different since he had rarely swum a 1650 truly in-season. His previous two in-season swims took place at a mid-season meet designed to get an NCAA A cut, so there was some rest involved.
