Today was a long workout. I swam with the masters from 7-8, then lifted for an hour and then swam again for 30+ mins. My daughter swims from 8-10am so with masters from 7-8am I have a 3 hour window I can take advantage of.

Overall I felt good today. The taper seems like a distant memory and I am building back to higher yardage and weights. My 200s on my main set felt good today and I held 2.20s. The kick is coming along but I need to work on shallower kicking. I have a tendency to deep kick when I 2 beat kick and the 6 beat kick needs to be quick and snappy(not two words I word normally use to describe anything I do in the pool). Home for a nap.
