    Doing swimmers cross fit(the IM) is always a challenge as far as I am concerned but I think the real problem was I tried doing hard breaststroke before I was completely warmed up. You know me, I never turn down the chance to swim fast and this was my own stupidity. I am feeling SO much better than I did on wednesday. I can still feel the pull but nothing like wednesday and it is not preventing me from doing anything like it was on wednesday.


    I get back tonight around 8pm and will be at practice tomorrow morning. You guys are awesome! Bill texted me earlier asking when I was getting back. Its great to swim with other teams for a number of reasons, but it does reinforce how lucky we are with our facility and training group. I had fun with Alexandria but I cant wait to get home!

    It was a fun event. I would have loved to have raced in the same heat as the young guys.

    The only thing I can put the struggle down too is my head position on my entry and under water streamline. I think I will try to get my coach to record me on my start and see if we can see anything. Its annoying because I am loosing all my underwater speed and coming to an almost complete stop when I break the surface. I think if I can correct this issue I will have some interesting back swims this season.

    Do you think it's allergies or busy life leadi g to a busy mind? I hope you enjoy the trip and are able to catchup on your sleep.

    I hope your flights and trip to AZ goes smoothly. If you're down in the Tucson/Oro Valley area and have time, try to avail yourself of the many resorts with spa/massage relaxation options.

    Agreed.

    I probably could have got ice at the hotel but did not think at the time and it hurt so bad I just wanted something to take the pain away. Ironically when I put the ice on the pain actually increased until it finally went numb at which point the ibuprofen I took also helped.

    Thanks.

    I stopped on the way back to the hotel and picked up ice. I could not believe that a bag of ice was $3.99!!
