    SHOUT OUT: Doug Martin, for counting for me (who need's lap counter poles anyways!), and Tom Genz (the aquatic director formerly known as coach formerly known as swimmer, got 8th at Olympic Trials Tom Genz).

    So yeah, I was feeling great until about the 800. I felt the shift, and the wheels start to loosen on the bus. The splits just confirm what I felt. I haven't swam that event in over 20 years, and that was certainly my first ever 1650 that I voluntarily entered. My goal time in April is 16:49. The swim gives me hope, but I have A LOT of work still to do!

    Snow day yesterday. Pool and work were both closed. I was still sore from the workout Wednesday so I just took it as a rest day. Back to the pool today - with a different training group since my usual doesn't have Friday practice.
