Evil is in me ...

Standard resting workout:
700 variety warm up
8 x 50 back @ 1:00
Was trying for easy speed. Had none, these are the slowest 50s backs I've done in recent memory.
3 x (25 build free + 25 easy)
3 x (25 AFAP kick w/fins + 25 easy)
3 x (25 AFAP free w/fins + 25 easy)
1 x 50 back AFAP w/fins (25ish)
The evil is in me, and I'm not talking about evilstroke. Seems like full on taper bitchies (confirmed by Mini-Fort), compounded by headache and totally wrenched neck/left trap. Going to chiro tomorrow. Felt dreadful in the water, the worst I've felt in ages. Hope that goes away; trying to ignore it.
I'm not going to the SCM meet in NY. I called the meet director today just to get a sense of the timeline and confirm receipt of my entry before I booked a flight. My entry was apparently mysteriously lost in the mail. (I didn't make a copy of it.) I don't have a fax machine and couldn't get to one today, as I'm too busy. Entry deadline has passed. So I'm crossing this meet off my list. Hopefully, I can find another one to go to later in the year. Bad luck + taper/sick bitchies is a bad combo. Perhaps it's just better to get back to training anyway!
Hope I get my mojo back soon. I think a run is needed. Trying to resist the urge to walk right out the door this very minute ... Promise to be less whiney in future posts!
