    I was unable to swim Thursday in Cincinnati due to thunderstorms, and Friday was the day I drove back to Little Rock. While thinking about practices for the rest of the week on the LONG drive back, I decided to give the "5 on 6" set one more go before taper. I figured I would balance the fact that I feel really work down from my 10 days of heavy training by wearing my old Blue Seventy full body suit. The suit didn't delay the lactic acid build-up, but it did help me "feel" fast!

    SHOUT OUT to Rinaldo, who was finishing his practice, but decided to jump in and do some 100s with me. First it was, "well, I'll do like two to three." Then he said, "well, one more." Then, "well, one more." Then finally, "well I think I am just going to do the rest of them with you." He was holding 1:03-1:05 on them. It really helped having someone to push me on the back 50 each time!
