Still feeling a bit from the meet. I guess 5 events takes more of a toll than my usual 3. Given that, I did an easy-ish speed workout today. Happily, the pool was pretty empty today. I hope it is tomorrow as well, though you'd think people would be doing their pre-turkey burn.

I'm bummed, I seem to have lost my agility paddles. Checked lost and found and they aren't their either.

    Bummer on the paddles. I would have stole them if I had the opportunity, but sadly it was Speedo.

    Me, too! Only, once I told my family I wanted them for Xmas, I then got bummed I couldn't spring the $20 and have them sooner.

    I thought about that too! However, since I'm tapering and goofing off after taper, I think I have no urgent need of them. And it still seems like they are making them in only one size. I was hoping for the small ones.

    I am having the same problem with a Dolfin Uglies practice suit. I just noticed that a patch on my Nike practice suit is starting to wear thin and now I'm not sure I'll make it to Christmas without getting another suit.

    Just double/triple 'em up, with a nylon men's drag suit over the top. I wear 3 or so suits like this normally. Can't afford to swim in 1 suit all the time, and the others prefer that I remain covered as well.

    So not a fan of multiple drag suits here. Renew your USMS membership and use one of the discounts to get a new suit.

    I already renewed! The cost of the suit isn't an issue so much as my inability to make decisions is. I'd asked for the Dolfin Uglies suit so that someone else would pick the hideous color and pattern. What will happen now is that I will be paralyzed with choices, finally decide, and then get the identical suit under the tree.

    I just always order black suits. No decision!
