60 minutes of stretching and RC/scapular exercises.

Gull (who is recovering rhomboid tendonitis) gave me these rhomboid stretches: http://www.ndortho.com/Pt_Advisor-WE...oid_Strain.pdf. The middle of the back can be a hard spot to stretch. I especially like the doorway stretch.

Suit(s) Report:

Tried on my Arena X-Glide. Like it very much. It's similar to the LZR Elite. Slightly different material. I wish the top half were slightly smaller. Not sure if I should keep it or not ... My LZR Elite seems to fit better on top, though it is not as compressing in the legs (probably all stretched out). Edit: I'm going to send back the Arena suit for the next size down. In my (expert haha ) view, it should have taken longer to get on even with Glide. Thanks to Teen Fort (who will only wear B70), I have also gotten my hands on a used FS3. I managed to wedge my body into it without undue trouble. So I may give that suit a whirl tomorrow and see it it is deserving of the recent bad press. Tt is certainly more compressing in the legs than the LZR Elite and has a very different feel.

Still planning on 50 breast/50 fly/50 back tomorrow.

    Good luck in the meet--that sounds like a fun 50s line-up. And thanks for the suit reports!

    After today's rip in a used FS3, I will NOT be purchasing any FS3 product.
