With today's workout, I've logged 7 swims in 8 days, making up for the sickness absence. I was pretty pleased with the times today given that I've been working pretty hard all week and did a solid speed/power workout yesterday. I slept great all week, which helps. I'm taking the weekend off from swimming!

Jim and I have a gridge on this year in the SCY 100 fly, so I will be doing more 100 flys for time. Anyone else up for gridges? I know James always is.

I went to sign up for the Nov. 18 sprint/relay meet, but online sign up is down. I'm going to enter 100 fly/100 breast/100 free (50 split). I'm entering the last event in case we can't get any relays together.

For NE Champs, with 3 of the 100s out of the way, I'm going to focus on 50s and enter:
Sat: 100 IM, 50 free, 200 back (50 split), 50 fly
Sun: 100 free (cruisey), 50 back, 50 breast, 200 free (50 split)
I will likely scratch one event each day. I haven't swum the 100 free since April 2009, so I'd like to pop one in. I don't like it much because it's difficult to sustain my straight arm super fast turnover for a 100.

I think I'll also swim in the MD swim series meet in Annapolis on Jan. 20 and swim a couple off events. The pool is supposed to be fairly decent.
