    Long week - hard work at the pool and gym and busy week at work. Just squats today. Last lift 'til after Sectionals!

    Back Squat - 135/3, 185/3, 225/3, 265/3, 300/3, 285/5, 270/7, 255/10

    Went up 5 more pounds to get to an even 300. Was a challenge after accelerating the progression the past two weeks, but happy to be back to 300 triple.

    Another week out of pool while in middle of trying to get started on a schedule. This time was from influenza A. 4 days of fever (at 101.8į I would drop a few advil). Also had to avoid pool a month ago - I had to get 7 stitches in my leg (do have a gnarly pic).

    Shoulders on otherhand, still seem to be tolerating the pool.

    I am free of the flu, except lingering upper respiratory effects. But as of today I should be 24hrs beyond period of transmitting.

    100 fr
    100 br
    1200 kick with surf fins and snorkel
    100 fr

    Iíll start swimming harder when Iím ready to. My only concern with the approaching meet is how I handle entering water from the block. Felt a little scary from the side of pool earlier, but the streamline arms feeling stronger than then

    Actually feels good going to meet once without any expectations or stress
