  1. Wed 5-27-15

    Short swims with lots of rest tonight. I have been extremely busy at work and have only been to the pool a couple of times in the last few weeks. I always dread that feeling of being two feet under the water and sloppy after a break. That dreaded feeling didn't let me down. Felt pretty crappy but I know it will come back soon.

    I have been swimming more than usual. However, our youngest daughter is a gymnast and her meets have kept us traveling lately.

    This weekend I have....

    Sat -> 500, 50 BK, 200 BK, 50 FR, 2IM
    Sun -> 4IM, 50 BR, 100 BK, 200 BR, 200

    All of my strokes feel really strong right now except free. I'm a bit nervous about the 500 because of this. We have 167 entries which is the largest attendance ever. Should be fun plus it is 10 min from the house.
