Thanks for the birthday greetings.
I was happy with this swim. Again, I was pleased to make all the kick set. I was a little tired on the main set since I had just really worked my legs.
I have been trying to decide what to do about my FLOG and the goal as I like the idea of having a goal but a distance goal is not reasonable for me at this time. Three years ago, I set a goal of 480 miles (in my mind the goal was 40 miles a month as I wanted to become more consistent in my training) and I did at least 40 miles every month except 1. The last two years, I have had a goal of 1,000,000 yards. This was my same goal for this year. I was right on pace (I could skip 1-2 days before the yellow exclamation point came up) when I got sick. This morning I was about 50 miles behind so I removed the goal but have been thinking a little about what I should aim for. I think that a reasonable thing to shoot for would be 3 swims a week.
Today, I start my fourth cycle. I am actually typing this in the infusion center so it will be a few days before I can swim again-- Hopefully, I 'll be back at it next Tuesday or Wednesday.
