200 easy WF
Felt better then normal in pool. Finger or two started to dig in on the last few starts. Adjusted hand position for entry (the quick set of 4 starts on 0:30).
On the fasts 25's, I felt a nice connection of sorts that felt better than usual. Of course, blasting away at top speed with fins naturally feels sweet, it just seemed better for some reason (a good day perhaps).
Also felt solid at gym. Did two handstands and the shoulders didn't whine at all. Needed just a couple brief foot touches on wall to hold stance. Worked everything except abs. 2 - 5 progressive, warm-up sets, with one heavy set last til failure.
