As expected, my arms and shoulders were tired today but surprisingly there weren't sore (yet?). My times on the 400s weren't exactly fast but they weren't terrible either.

I used the monofin for the first time in a while. The last time I used it I got blisters that took weeks to heal because they were on the joints of my first two toes, so today I put some Bodyglide on those parts of my feet and didn't have any problems.

    Good tip on the body glide. My last MF session had a similar result.

    I purposely didn't go far because I didn't know if it would help, but my feet weren't tender at all so will up the yardage next time and see how it goes.
