After a long rest

I am a former swimmer, trying to get back into competitive swimming. I have been out of the pool 20 years and put on some extra pounds. This blog primarily documents my journey back to competitive swimming. And I should say having fun along the way!!!

    Today I once again joined the Rice Masters team. Yesterday afternoon I started to get a scratchy throat but luckily excused myself from all my work responsibilities last night and went to bed early. I slept great and woke up feeling a lot better. Today's workout was much easier than yesterday's. Today was sprint day but I just had none.
