I woke up feeling like an old man today. Generally tired and very sore. I was slow leaving the house but got to the pool on time. As the warmup went on i felt better and better. It was by no means a spectacular workout but it was ok. I ended up sticking around and doing a second hour with the junior racers then lifted and swam again, making today a long workout day.

I am really tired as i write this. My 200s with the masters were pretty weak today but managed to hold 2.17s. The goal was 2.13s but it was just not there today. The IM and 150 set was with the junior racers and it was really fun swimming with the 12 year olds. They are quick already. I was going 1.45s on the 150s .

    Thanks. That set of 200s wiped me out and I could feel them all day yesterday and when I woke up this morning. I am glad I just kept focused and pushed myself today.

    I too am looking forward to competing long course, but don't expect much this year since I plan on training through the summer with no taper to build a good solid base.

    Your times are looking good and with some rest you should be able to get qualifiers for Worlds.
