    Still sub par, but journeyed off to the rec center. I was expecting a mosh pit with Oak Marr closed due to a pool leak, and it was very crowded. I spent most the time sharing a lane with an elderly man with a wide whip kick and penchant for swimming down the middle of the lane -- the worst kind of noodler. So I had to adjust the workout and do more kicking with a board to avoid injury. I was plagued with calf cramps the entire time; have been for the last month. And I still don't feel up to AFAP 50s. I feel like my 100s are really going to take it on the chin this season if I'm not 100% soon. Missing two weeks of training almost entirely is different than two weeks of tapering. Still hoping for a rally this week! Off to dinner with two old friends to cheer me up.
