Woke up feeling like crap. I have the cold that Teen Fort has had the last few days. Couldn't do the workout I had planned; did some wee sprints instead, which was all I had the energy for. Even forgot my equipment bag. After, I headed to my thyroid for for my 6 month check up. My T4 is down again and my magnesium is very low, both of which likely account for the cramping I've had lately. I take a ton of magnesium, but I am apparently a fast metabolizer and don't absorb it well. I will have to be more diligent about getting magnesium injections.
On the upside, I checked the SCM relay rankings last night. Our small team did well. The mixed relays I swam with Teen Fort, Speedo and Bob Hansen in the 160-199 age group were 200 medley (#2), 200 free (#2) and 400 medley (#1). Teen Fort was psyched and has started plotting for the Albatross meet. Speedo has not been in the pool for a month, but swears he's getting in later this week. We shall see. One of our other 200 medley relays in the 200+ age group (that I swam with Barb, Gustavo and Tim) was also #5. Go us!
