  1. Saturday, Nov 3 - Feeling the Effects

    I think I was feeling the effects of the sprint work last night, along with the inconsistent work outs lately, along with not drinking enough fluids, along with the pizza buffet I took my daughters to. Anyway I was tired and sore last night. It was hard to leave the bed this morning, but I got up and went to the Huntsville natatorium. Swam with Dave M, Peter, Dave B, Teresa and the Hsv group. Started good eventhough my triceps were sore. Swam hard but when I reached 4300 yards I hit a wall.
