    Oh my goodness I felt trashed this morning. On Saturday I had the misfortune of blowing out my Baker's cyst again - I couldn't walk or anything, so much pain. So Sunday was spent mainly in bed, lying in the lazy boy, etc. This resulted in lower back pain, so I could hardly do my flip turns this morning. Got out rather early.

    500 back/free
    5 x 100 P @ 1:30
    300 kick
    100 easy
    4 x 500; 2 pull, one breast/free, one lollygagging around

    Total: 3400

    Was planning on a twist today & doing weights after work, and only swimming tomorrow morning, but life may get in the way. Have to teach a class on diabetes to my patients & I got drafted to bring in the refreshments. Thought I would try the whole "hard boiled eggs" by baking them in the oven - epic fail! Now I'm boiling the eggs for the Deviled Eggs, and behind, as usual. At least I'm not behind on my charting!!

    Didn't realize I hadn't been on here in so long. Swam like crap this morning. Felt like I was swimming in sludge. It's amazing how much can change in a week. Last Wed, the water temp was 78, and I swam really well. Monday I swam well also. Today the air temp was back down to 38 again, water temp back up to 81, and I felt like a salmon going upstream. Got the distance in, but the quality just wasn't there.

    500 back/free
    300-200-100 Pull w/20 sec rest btwn ea
    10 x 50 non-free @ 1:00 (some of these were breast/free by 25's)
    4 x 400; last 2 pull
    6 x 150 swim/stroke or kick/swim
    200 breast/free
    Total: 4000LCM
