I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat and a head full of nasty stuff. I don't feel too bad, just not 100%. Is it bad when your coach texts you in the middle of the day "I hope you aren't tired when you come to swim tonight." The intervals weren't hard but holding my 1:14 pace got tough for me. That number is where I end up on the last 300 of my 500. Pacing is something that I have been working hard at for a long time now. I have to say that I am moving in the right direction but have a lot of work to do. The back half of every race at my last meet has improved dramatically.

    Hopefully it's just allergy and not the crud. Even though it's still bitter cold down here, the yellow pine dust has already started covering surfaces, which is a sign the the other antigenic pollens may be out there also.

    I hope you are right. My truck stays outside and I have had pollen on my hood for about a week now. It has only been the last couple of years that I have had allergy issues. I guess I am lucky. Most people are absolutely miserable with allergy problems.
