I took yesterday off as usual. But I did do 40 minutes of RC, elbow and scapular exercises, with an emphasis on the scapular area. Fun ... NOT!

Lateral bunny hops over bench, 20
Bike, 15 minutes
Stretching, 15-20 minutes
Didn't swim this weekend, which is fine. The pools were mostly closed anyway for a USAS meet and HS Regionals. The latter was fun to watch with almost every event won in an AAA time at finals. Sophomore star Janet Hu went a 53.7 100 back and 49.5 100 free. Sick fast.
The only disappointing part of the meet was that the free anchor of Teen Fort's medley relay loafed to save herself for the next event. I was shocked and really pissed off; I've not seen anything that flagrant at a champs meet where team points matter. Two other girls were also in the next event, one in an earlier heat, and they swam fast. Her mother apparently told her to loaf. Wtf. I was also ticked because Teen Fort took some time off rowing and gave up going to the Mid Atlantic Erg Sprints to be with her team and swim at this meet. Her good deed was rewarded in part with an outright selfish and ethically dubious act. At least the coaches were displeased and are going to take some action. Personally, I think they should pull the brat out of the event she loafed the relay for. But I doubt that will happen.
