+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Got up and went to the Mason practice with Teen Fort this am. 9 x 150? Ouch. My body is not remotely accustomed to that. Jeff Roddin is insane if he thinks I'll ever do 200 IM! Never! I only made it through the set by completely cruising every third one. Now I'm ready for a nap. But, no, I must write my HIT workouts and attend to holiday matters.

    You should listen to Jeff. I bet you could throw down a good 200 IM! Not saying you'd enjoy it

    More tired from that than a good old HIT workout.

    No! I swam that event almost every meet of my life as an age grouper. I tried it once in the floaty suits and it was awful. Don't wanna! :-)

    As Clay always tells me, they never give out medals in practice. In other words, don't forget you only have to do one of them in a meet and not a whole set

    That is a good saying.

    Even one seems unappealing though. And I have work to do in the 100 IM. First up, I need to learn your back to breast turn!
