WARM DOWN: 4 X 50 easy
I had a massage last night! I was not sore before I went but it was a very painful 90 minutes. I seem to get knots in my back and shoulders pretty easily and actually was sore here during nationals. My masseuse worked my right side very hard. I know I will benefit from this as I have done previously but there were several times last night where I had tears in my eyes. I hydrated a lot after the massage and expected to be up and down to the bathroom all night. This did not prove to be the case and I woke just as the alarm was due to go off feeling sore but more rested than I have been all week. Today's both my kids came to the pool with me. My son lifted while my daughter and I swam, with my daughter and I an adjacent lanes for most of the workout.

i felt good today. The 200s were on an easy interval and I was going 2:09,2:04,1:59,2:09,2:04 and 1:54. The last one Tom told the kids that if they beat me they could get out. I was not having any of that and threw down a much faster 200(the next fastest boy was 2:03). On the 100s I felt awesome and was holding 1:03s on the easier intervals and the. :57/:58s on the 1min interval. Again I felt really good. I hope this is an indicator that all my breathing challenges are well and true lily behind me. After practice we had our normal team breakfast and both my kids joined us. Fun, fun, fun!!!
I was once again tired when I woke up this morning but gradually I am catching up on my sleep from monday. I added one extra round of abs today. Next week I will add the power roller back into the mix. Today I did one exercise per round with the medicine ball.

I was bummed that the pace clock at LA Fitness was broken again. I just counted to 25 myself between 25s on the 100 pace stuff. I used fins during the 100 pace stuff today. My left shoulder is bothering me. I sleep on my left side and have very fitful sleep as of late. Still coughing and ears hurt too. Hopefully, this will all subside.

Slept on couch last night. Didn't rest well. My neck hurts. But I had a very pleasant swim today.
Weights - every muscle group worked at about 85%
It's not the fuel pump. I hooked up a 9VDC battery to the pump and it worked. I believe it may be the alternator. First, it has 240,000 miles. Second, engine actually runs when jumped from another car but as soon as the cables are disconnected, it dies.
About the car, Thursday morning, 1 hour before I left for Nationals it died while my wife was driving. I had to pick her up and push the car up a small hill in a parking lot for a tow truck. I was so worried about my legs. I can't say if it had an impact or not, but I did exert 100% force pushing it. I am thankful however, it happened while I was still home. Will be looking for a reasonable replacement car this summer.
Miss them already
