    Notes:
    I am glad I could sneak away from my last day in the office to make my last practice with my team. Breast stroke workouts are difficult in that they hammer my legs. The intervals weren't as fast as I had hoped, but I felt like my stroke was decent. I liked the long descending free intervals as a change.
    Hopefully I will find a team to start practicing with soon so that I don't miss that much time in the pool.
    I'll talk to you all from the other side of the pond.
