I have been sleeping well that last several weeks, but not last night and this morning I was slow to wake up with some dizziness. By the time I arrived at the pool, my head had cleared and I was ready to make a good effort.

In sets 1 & 2 I wanted to do some timed 50 FR swims to compare against my recent practice results. I was pleased to get timed under 28, but I feel lost under the water from the dive during the kicking transition to fast swimming. Even though I said almost the same thing four weeks ago, I have not been on the blocks that much!

I received my new Water Gear size 7-9 long fins yesterday and tried them out in Set 3. The long fins are really great and feel awesome! Really looking forward to swimming extra fast with them in FR, BK, and Fly.
