It has been an incredibly hectic and exhausting few days. That is an understatement. And it was so busy before the move happened with graduation, parties, summer swim, house renovations, etc. I feel like I could sit on the beach and do nothing but read and drink margaritas for a couple weeks. But no rest for the weary yet. I did take a break from unpacking yesterday and headed down to the Mt. Lebanon outdoor pool for a loosen up swim. I met Jenn Michaels, coach of Pitt Masters there. We have kids the same age in the same grade at the same middle school! Tonight, I journeyed to the Sewickley Y to meet up with Jimby. I was too exhausted to do more than a half hearted workout. It maybe awhile before I get back in my AFAP groove. This could be the worst couple training months I can recall for many years. I'm trying not to fret about that too much. And, unfortunately, I really hurt my gimpy right elbow exactly in the spots I had PRP'd. It's very painful, but I haven't had any time to ice. Mr. Fort flew down to NC with Lil Fort today for nationals. I'm leaving on Friday. They are live streaming the meet so I can watch her on line tomorrow am. I hope she's in a decent mental frame of mind to race. This has all been hard on her. Not as much pressure though since she's 12 and racing 13-14 (bc she turns 13 by the end of the year; I wish track followed the swimming rules).
Tuesday: 2300 with a few fast 25s
Wednesday: 3000+ with a 100 @ 200 pace and 6 25s @ 100 pace
Thursday: hope to make it somewhere to swim bc I won't be working out on Friday and Saturday.
