    I've been an awful blogger.

    I was all set to go to Nats.
    entered the meet, got my flights, hotel, and rent car.
    I made it all the way to the airport gate for a 5:45 am flight. My plane was loading and we had a family emergency, so I cancelled my flight then turned around an went home. I was bummed. I really wanted to swim and see my swim friends.

    I followed the meet from home. My training partner Jim Sauer, 57 tore it up.
    he swam great in his 2 & 4 IMs, 1 fly, 2bk and had a OK 2 FLY, he reminded himself if you go too hard on your 1st 2 50's in the 2 LCM fly your next 2 50's could be difficult.

    I swam last Wed, just an easy taper work out on my own & didn't swim Thu - Sun.
    My team was on break.
