    Sunday 3/9

    "Central Section Region VIII Championships Day #4"

    200 FL - 2:03.18 (26.73/30.27/32.34/33.84) - Well as you can see, I finally hit the wall around the 125 mark. All the racing and the physical/emotional/mental stress of this past week (it's been crazy in more ways than one) finally caught up to me. I had really wanted to break the 2:00 barrier. I took it out fast enough to do it, I just died coming home.

    Total: 2000ish

    Now for a week of rest away from the pool. Then it's time to decide what's next.

    ** So I had time for a short swim this morning, and did ~ 50% of the club team's Wednesday AM workout (I had the coach send it to me, it was a stations workout). I didn't think much of it because I planned to do my main workout this afternoon. However, when I got in to start my warm-up this afternoon, the SIU men's team came and took all 5 of the lanes at the warm-up end of the pool. I don't blame them, I blame the silly diving coaches who were judging diving, who (I believe) complained that the people swimming at the competition end were splashing them and distracting them from diving and so sent them to the other end of the pool...today just turned out to be a bust training wise, but at least I got to touch the water twice.

    I was happy with the pace work this evening, but will probably use both practices tomorrow (if I make both) to recover.
