    PM SCY w/ Trip @ LRRC "Trip takes a mulligan"

    Yes, yes I know I just completed a shave/taper meet yesterday, but spare me the lectures on taking a break. There is work to be done and only 145 days until I dive in to the 1650 at YMCA Nationals. Also the back half of this week may be a wash with the holidays. Also also Trip wasn't happy with his workout yesterday (the only change being that I wasn't there...go figure?), so he took a do-over.

    SHOUT OUT: Trip. I think today was better for him than yesterday. He blamed the pool temperature, but I think he was just pining away for me and couldn't focus :P

    Felt very labored on my 100s today. Could not get going on my pace until I actually got to the faster intervals. Not entirely sure what to make of that. Anyways, only the first day of taper so can't expect to feel fantastic already!
