    No doubt not the outcome you were looking for. A small suggestion: See this as an opportunity. Take the opportunity to focus yourself mentally (and perhaps physically if appropriate) on something that you have wanted to do but didn't have the time to devote your attention to. If you become absorbed in an alternate passion, time will pass more effortlessly and who knows, you may find yourself not only recuperated, but refreshed. Swim intensity waxes and wanes in life, but the waning periods are an opportunity explore another passion.

    Swimming or not, feel better soon.

    Is there anyone who can help relieve you of some of the things on your plate? Is there another coach who might help out for a month or so? Or someone on your team who is interested in coaching and could give it a try temporarily?

    Definitely take some time for yourself for stress relieve - whether it's sleeping or swimming or whatever. Like they say on planes, put oxygen on yourself before helping others, otherwise you may not survive.

    Thanks Tom. I'm trying to make it happen. Maybe Sojerz and some other Philly area folks will make it out as well

    The Monument Kick is just like a tombstone kick, where you hold the kickboard at a right angle to the ceiling, pointing up. A fun 25.

    It would be great to have you swim with us up this way, sick. It'll be like the good old days!
