    Tue Sep 11th, 2012

    Went to bed late, slept late, didn't hear or get up with my alarm,
    going to bed earlier tonight &
    plan to get up at 5:30 tomorrow
    Planned to lift yesterday but needed to go straight home
    plan to lift today

    Exchanged a few emails with Susan Ingraham about a SCM meet she's hosting Sat Dec 1 & Sun Dec 2 at Palo Alto in San Antonio
    That's the one I'm training for now, though I might slip in another meet the week before Thanksgiving.


    since I arrived late yesterday, I came back for noon practice, my 1st fall double, on the 5 x 200 frees on 2:20 Keith said let's hold 2:10's
    I thought "yeah right."
    but I went 2:10, 2:12, 2:11, 2:10, 2:08
    which was a bit of a surprise

    Our schedule is weird, we're at UT this week then back to Mabel Davis, next week
