I hadn't swum long course in awhile and I definitely felt the difference between short course and long course today. The pool wasn't too crowded so I mostly floated at the back of the lane. How I feel varies a lot from day to day so I think that it probably confuses my lane mates. Today, at the start of the 100s (there were actually 5 sets of 5 but I did 15), someone asked me if I wanted to lead. As I was floating on my back at the flags at the time, I just shook my head "no" saying I was quite content where I was.

One thing that happened during the 10 days that I was out was that the yards top ten came out. I don't care to race yards too much so I generally swim at one meet (my team's hosted meet) and swim two events. Before I got sick, I had a goal to get to a 100 top tens so was happy to see that both events squeaked in (8th in the 200 fly and 10th in the 400 IM). Those are #s 82 and 83 if I count relays (72 individuals and 11 relays).

    Warm congratulations on your SCY 2013 Top Tens! Definitely count the relays! LCM swimming is always a challenge when swimming mostly SCY or after a break, so you are doing great. As always... Sincerely wishing you the best.
