Still feeling really poorly. But I did manage to drag myself to the pool to do this very easy workout. I had hoped I could crank this week after skipping all of last week, but I think it's still going to be a few more days until I'm 100%. Between this extended illness, spring vacation and putting our house on the market April 1, I may not be in tip top shape for Nationals in early May. C'est la vie. I already have some good times logged. I just hope our house sells quickly; 24/7 cleaning will not agree with me. The market is very good right now in DC, so fingers crossed.

Nice article by Glenn Mills about reading sets: http://www.goswim.tv/entries/6228/reading-a-set.html

    That's a good article about how to approach the sets. I agree that so many people just swim through the workouts and don't make the most of their time in the pool.

    Agree! I've seen this at USS and masters practices. I don't typically have this problem training solo, fortunately. If there's not a purpose to the set, I'm not motivated to do it.

    Wow, the compound should be snatched up quickly. The DC area is known for people with deep F.U. Pockets in any kind of economy. It is a nice house with a room just for drying swimsuits!

    I really hope so! Our real estate agent seems to agree. But it is an historic house and the DC area is also known for it's love of oversize center hall colonials.

    No, sadly. To Pittsburgh, land where USMS barely exists. I will have to travel for every meet.
