    That last heat of the 800's was exciting to watch! Great swim

    Shave, what is that going to take you, 5 minutes! It must be nice! Good luck at Nationals. I am bummed that I couldn't get up there this year again and when it is on the east coast yet again. Well, hopefully, next year!

    Pretty good. Not a lot of lactic acid build up, as is usually the case with the short rests; but being at a pace that is a lot quicker has different effects, we'll see how sore I am tomorrow.
    I think I just needed a mental break more than anything, though it would be interesting to see if I could get to the goal pace by swimming the goal pace first, then adding distance and cutting rests... instead of always trying to swim distances on short rests and hoping that the pace gets faster.

    That's exactly what I told her! She is just used to our very sweet border collie.

    Thanks guys. I took mucinex and alka seltzer nighttime cold before I went to bed last night and woke up feeling a lot better. My chest finally loosened up and has been clearing all day. Still not 100% but SO much better than yesterday. I am leaving my positive checkin until the morning to see how I am but I am leaning towards swimming it. I love racing and no mater the outcome I will have fun.

    Between shingles before spring nationals and a chest cold before summer nationals I have had quite the buildup to my last two meets.

    OMG that's awful so sorry. I hope she is ok and recovers quickly. I hope this does not scare her with dogs going forward. Dogs like humans are made up of good and bad.

    Good luck Stewart. Getting sick is a sure sign of a good taper!

    Are you taking guaifenasin (brand name Mucinex)? That and a lot of water should really loosen chest congestion.
