    She did great and seems very grounded.

    It seems so so weird for me to not go lots of distance and not work hard all the time. It's a balance but think it will help me recover. The bionic elbow is doing great but my left shoulder is a whole different story and will likely have to get it taken care of after Budapest but I will leave that for another day. It's bearable right now!

    "Despite this she dropped 11 seconds on her 100 fly, which was pretty awesome!" Holy smokes that's incredible!! Good job on her!

    Enjoy the taper. I'd guess it goes against your grain to relax a bit, but you can do it. You're going to be amazing over there, especially with the new bionic arms.

    scy is a pain but I can flip turn with the chute; you just have to be much closer to the wall than you think inorder to make it work. Tuesday is scy while Thursday is LCM, so I only have to deal with it on Tuesday.

    I really like the power tower but it is very hard on the shoulders, and I felt yesterdays workout throughout todays workout and I am not even using super heavy weights.

    I am going to swim but will try to be as casual as possible around my daughter. Indy has some options so I will make it work. We also have several chaperones and she has friends in our senior group who she can hang out with while I swim. I will make it work!

    I was doing so well for the longest period where I wrote the workout down right after practice, but recently I have calls almost immediately after practice and remembering my workout gets tougher and tougher. I guess if there is a silver lining the fact that I am swimming and swimming pretty well is it!

    I have been doing more and more of this type of set instead of a straight 16x50 set which I did forever. If you go one more round its 15x50's so its as tough but somehow the active recovery makes it more mentally tolerable.
