    Today was Trip's birthday, so lots of people came out for his birthday swim. It used to be Xx100 @ 1:30 (long course when the LCM was available) where X was Trip's age. Now that he is getting OLD, it is Xx50 @ :50 SCY. So this year it was 61x50 @ :50. Being on taper, I did not do all 61. I sort of weaved in and out of the set while doing my workout (I did my pace 50s with the rest of the group).

    Had just a sniff of some speed on the 300s, but no "easy speed" yet. Taper should set in in earnest by the beginning of next week. Some splits from the last 300: 58/1:28+/2:00/2:31 (100/150/200/250) .

    As you can see, things unraveled quickly after the first 4 100s. I had two playoff soccer games on Sunday. Hard for me to say no when the team needs me. I'll be cutting soccer out after this week, but even playing reduced minutes, I still felt gassed today. No one to blame but myself!
