No time for a swim today with Lil Fort having friends over, and mentally I needed a break! All I've done for weeks is swim, swim, swim. I need to mix it up more so that I'm feeling excited about getting to the pool and more ferocious once I'm there.
I did mostly a core workout at the gym today. I want to ease back into drylands and not ramp up until after my meet. (As it is, I'm sure I'll feel the effects of the power wheel.) After the meet, I may take a few days off -- from the pool, not exercise.
Was interviewed by Swimming World TV today via skype. It's going to air next Monday. He asked me quite a bit about SDKs -- not surprising! Right after me they talked to Allen Stark and you can watch him on Tuesday. For my interview, they warned me that I wouldn't see the interviewer on my computer screen. They didn't explain why (and didn't do this with Allen), and it was rather odd talking to just my computer screen. Hopefully, I won't look too foolish. lol Jimby said he has done the same thing before.
Here's the list of WRs set at Nationals: http://www.swimmingworldmagazine.com...urse-Nationals. Interestingly, only 3 of the records were broken by swimmers under 50. All three are Olympians (Gangloff, Chris, and Noriko Inada). The tech suit records aren't easy to crack!
