I thought I might feel a little boggey with yesterday's deep tissue cupping, but felt decent.
Forgot to report on some goggles I tried this summer at my long course meets. I first tried the new Speedo liquid storm goggles at Nationals. (I had needed some new meet goggles.) http://www.speedousa.com/product/ind...32044.12361075. They fit fairly well; I had some small leakage problems at nationals. But tightening and changing the nose piece made them pretty good racing goggles. I also was sent a free pair of Arena cobra racing goggles when I ordered my tech suits. http://www.swimoutlet.com/product_p/25209.htm. I absolutely love these goggles! The best I've ever used. Lil Fort loved them too and used them for several summer league races. I have reclaimed them and hidden them away.
I'm also very excited that we are having a local SCM meet this year, and in November. I'm not sure I've ever swum in a masters meet in November ... It's at Mason too! https://www.clubassistant.com/club/m...1481&smid=4182. I'm considering knocking a couple 100s off at this meet before my taper meet in December. Probably 100 fly and either 100 breast or 100 IM.
