I wasn't feeling all that rested after Friday's recovery workout and a day off. This usually means I'm due for a recovery week, but I really want to hold off until next week.
I finally got my Swimmer magazine. I loved the reference to my training as BFS -- Beyond Four Strokes. That would be a good blog title. And it was certainly what I did today in the pool.
Sadly, Fort Son left today to return to college. Dartmouth changed its calendar and he had an extremely long break. I got used to having him home. Oh well, fewer demands for food. Lil Fort went on an 11 mile trail run today with Mr. Fort. Like him, she seems to have iron ankles. Fort Son and I decidedly don't (hence our ankle sprain histories).
So glad Downton Abbey is back tonight!
