    Celestial, exactly what orbit is he in? Get it, hahaha!! I think what makes me have no patience for this is that he is 29 years old. I must admit, it is hard NOT to overlay our own experience on others, and at 29, I was well on my way to being a professional woman- meaning, I was out of business school and really striving to establish myself. Drinking, partying, all that stuff was over by 21. And he's still doing it. It's like life hasn't changed for him - and he hasn't needed to change or "grow up". There doesn't seem to be any maturation and really, his one "job" has been swimming.

    It is pretty disappointing about Phelps. His apology sounds almost exactly the same as when he was 19. I was surprised the story made the front of the BBC and CBC news websites.
    Thanks for confirming 2:40ish. Today we did a set of 4 times 4 x 50 Im order 1:00 fast, and I went roughly on average 36 40 46 36 so that's a 2:38. That freestyle was incredibly painful I may not swim the 200IM.

    The Dallas Morning New sports section is supposedly really good, but all they report on are the big 3 sports. Michael got a blip on the back page. In other news, EBOLA is a huge news story. One of the elementary schools cited is one block from our home office!

    I think it's probably due to busy mind. My allergies were horrible last month -- September is always a bad one for me with all the ragweed -- but I am on the full cocktail of allergy meds.

    Flights went smoothly, but no real time for relaxation. Maybe another trip.

    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!

    I have the exact same problem on backstroke starts. I wish I had a solution for you!
    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.
