Just an easy pre-meet swim today.
Heat sheets for the Sprint Classic are up.

Had a consulting appt with my PRP doc today. Because of the complicted MRI diagnosis, he wants me to see his elbow specialist to rule out surgery for the tears. This really does not thrill me, but I have an appt Nov. 1. I'm going to continue to hope that it is not surgical since I am still swimming and there is not great weakness. The tears and tendinosis can be treated by PRP, probably need 3 rounds. In retrospect, I am cross with myself that I did not get an MRI last November. I've wasted a lot of time and money on a misdiagnosis. And I likely caused more damage by returning to lifting too early, thinking it was just tennis elbow. If I'm ever injured again, I'm going to err on the side of getting an MRI right away.
On another note, I'm not sure I should restart weights after Sundays meet. With upcoming meets on Nov. 18 and Dec 7-8, it might not make any sense. I can't decide whether to do a little core work and jumping or lay off entirely.
