    Thanks Ande. No, the evilstroke is not so evil anymore. I've liked it more ever since they allowed a dolphin kick on starts and turns. But I've also been tinkering with my pull and plams down recovery.

    That isn't a blog feature. But you can always ask.

    Shooter = streamline dolphin kick an entire length underwater
    Double shooter = 2 lengths underwater with a breath at the flags before flipping
    burst = AFAP to the 25 meter mark, then cruise the rest of the 25
    AFAP = as fast as possible
    RC = rotator cuff

    My swimming has been pitiful lately. I intended to swim after work but it ended up being an absolutely gorgeous day and I opted to go to the nature trails for a long walk with a friend and then I mowed the front yard and dug out weeds. The latter part needed to get done so I suppose it was justifiable.

    Either way, you'll do just fine at your Zone meet!
    i was kicking myself I did not bring my cords because that would have been great. I am swimming with Georgia masters today so I will get a real swim in.

    Nice swim! Thanks for warming the pool up for me for this weekend!

    Thanks, guys! It was blessed to be able to squeeze a swim in during the trip (not to mention myself in that suit ), and to finish much faster than I anticipated. I love Boston!

    If you go back, you could swim super short course at the Renaissance!

    no I was at the embassy suites. No black lines and hardly a pool I tried finding a masters team I could swim with but it appeared that they only swim on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

    Sounds beautiful ... and, yet, at the same time, a painful reminder that, a few years back, when I was traveling to Napa often for work (much rougher than it sounds), I never made the time to swim there.

    Enjoy the trip!

    Zoomers are the really short fins. I had to wean myself off my long fins to really strengthen by pathetic kick.

    Well tomorrow I have a 7am flight which means I have to leave at 4.45 to get to DFW and the tomorrow night I have to drive from Atlanta to Montgomery, Alabama, so tomorrow is not looking good. I am staying in a hotel with an indoor pool so maybe Wednesday I will get wet but probably not much of a workout based on the size of the pool. Thursday I will swim with the Atlanta masters so Thursday I should be set. Fingers crossed all this falls into place otherwise I will miss more than one day for the first time in 18months.

    This mornings workout was tough. We missed you. Eileen swam with Melissa in your lane, but they were doing a different workout to me.

    Donald signed up for zones.

    See you bright and early on Friday.
