    Feeling like garbage. Can't shake this cold. By the 3rd 200, every time I pushed off under water I was having a coughing fit. Didn't even bother doing another set after the 200s. Just called it a day.

    So my daughter was sent home sick from school, which severely shortened my time to swim. I am also still sick (can't stop coughing). I rushed to the LRRC to find Trip and Jack finishing going up a pyramid of 100-200-300-400-300-200-100. I warmed up on the 400 and then went right into the fast. Whenever I write a workout and say I did it with Trip, it almost always means we did the main set and warm down together, not warm-up. I start about 30-40 minutes before Trip cause I like long dynamic warm-ups. Trip just does a 500 and starts pounding. Hey Trip, I tried your way. I don't like it. You can keep your skimpy warm-up.

    It took almost 4 weeks of hard work but my wife and kids finally managed to get me sick with whatever head/chest cold they had. Feeling under the weather and in a fog so just sort of "aerobic'd" my way through practice (will probably be the strategy for the next 3-4 days).
