    I'll get over it soon. I did just sign my registration form for USAS for the summer months. If you get a chance to come over to Wenatchee for one of the LCM meets you should! Lots of good competition from the kids over here. Starlight Invite in early July may be a good one!

    Good luck racing my "ghost" tomorrow! It'll be like the Olympics where they put the red line in the pool ahead of the swimmer. Just imagine that I'm right there and kick my @ss!!!

    It could be a combo of a lot of things. Work is definitely on the hit list for things that would do this. I do get into many awkward positions to see things, lift, pull, push, break nuts/bolts loose, etc. Sometimes it would be nice to have a desk job!

    But yes, it will be nice to watch soccer this weekend.

    Good luck on the rehab.
    I'm thinking about a little of everything, but haven't decided if I'll do chiropractor, massage, or just plain old R & R to wait it out. It may be something from work too. Occasionally I'll stand up into something overhead I didn't see and hit my bump cap on framework, but it's just weird that is came about on a Monday morning. Or maybe it's just Monday.

    Thanks Leslie! We just wanted to win the overall of the 200 free relay, and wanted to give our more senior swimmers a good lead. Now I need a 23.x on a flat start race again!

Too bad you don't have video of the 200 fly! I'd like to see your wall-time technique, hahaha!!!!
    Thanks Chow!! My 200 and 500 were pure but so swims, trying to stay ahead of competition. I don't like to lose no matter who, what, where or why we're racing.
    The 200 fly, I got told my turns were a little slow, probably something to work on. :-)

    Thanks Patrick!! The 200 and 500 Free were definitely the best races of the weekend, and usually those are some of the toughy ones to do right!

    The U-JAGUAR-TP is simple, but most people couldn't handle it. It's harder than P90X!!!!
