    Welcome back! And so glad you had an awesome time in Paris. All of that work on your legs walking around does have benefits, but, more importantly, the social/emotional/intellectual benefits of absorbing Paris are well worth the time off from the pool.

    DELTA=Don't Ever Leave The Airport

    A friend of mine is a flight attendant for them. She says they can be a pain.

    I'll keep that in mind, though I'll never be seeing those numbers!

    I blame it on Delta. I've had massive travel problems my last three trips with them.

    Are re you going to be in San Antonio for Nationals?
    No Nationals for me, alas. Someone told me Greensboro has them soon and I should make it to that.

    I like your lineup for the DAM meet!
    Yes it was scary especially when he slurred his words and could not concentrate. He is much better today and almost back to his normal self.

    I thought you you would enjoy me having a go at the IM's.

All that's left is Hawaii!

    at the beginning of the workout the coach asked what i can hold for a set of 100s. Based on this she pushed me to there fast lane and the. After the warmup she moved people out of my lane. She then proceeded to push my intervals. She was very friendly and sincere with all her comments but definitely enjoyed pushing me harder and harder. I guess I was holding just over minute pace(like 1:02 ish) on the 150s.

    Hey Celestial!, sounds something horrible with that v bug.. Looks like you put in a good swim! Take it easy on yourself. I too,can't be without the water either. Glad you're feeling better! From one swimmer to another!!

    I definitely think this one crosses the line of focused into the realm of crazy and I am feeling the lack of sleep. I knew yesterday would be a tough day to get a swim in so this was my only choice. FYI. My wife thinks I was nuts. I guess in hindsight I may see her point.

    Holy cow, that's some dedication getting up at 2:45 before a flight to work out. Nice work.

    Looks like you got a decent swim in, so I hope that means you're feeling better.
    This might be dubbed the Winter of Sickness and Snow (or Sickness of Snow? Coldness and Colds?) since there's been so much of both this year.

I think I need to force myself to NOT swim for awhile to build a habit of drylands/weights.
    I think I say this all the time, but in case you didn't know: I pretty much stopped swimming my first year of lifting, and I dropped huge amounts of time when I came back. Lately I've also noticed that the effect of training on my recovery ability, especially my joints, is additive between swimming and lifting, and whenever I try to work really hard on both of them it doesn't work.
