~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My body was not really cooperating today. I guess it is telling me I have to start tapering. I hope I have left enough time (10 days) to really rest my legs. I figured a 10 day taper should be fine after only 5 1/2 weeks of training post Nationals. I will either do 1500 EZ or take the day off tomorrow. I have a huge to do list anyway.

On an odd note, I am way ahead of my GTD goal of 350 miles. I guess it's cuz I've been swimming more frequently the last year.

    On your "burst+cruise" are you doing speed burst for 30 meters, then swimming easy for 20 meters?

    Nope, just going 15+ meters and then cruising back.

    You may already know this, but there will be a meet at GMU-Manassas Aug 3-4. They have a clever format. Saturday afternoon will be LCM and Sunday morning will be SCM. While we don't have any sanctioned meets this summer in PV, this meet is very close to our LMSC. I haven't heard if there will be any LCM meets in the MD LMSC but will put them on the PV website if/when I hear of anything.

    Thanks for the tip, Jeff! I will keep that in mind, though I am tentatively planning on not swimming that much in July. Have you been getting back in the water much?
