I am still trying to balance store rate speed and not cutting my pull short on the fast swims - still more work to go. I don't have a parachute so I just modified that section a bit.
With work tomorrow I will likely not be able to swim, unless I get out right at 8pm and make the last 15 minutes of masters practice to stretch out. I may not be that motivated, though.
