My daughter did her first private lesson with my coach last night, working on her turns. While she swam I lifted. I ended up doing the circuit training I did last spring and by the end was really really sore. This morning was pretty miserable and in fact kept waking last night each time I would move in my sleep. Today's swim felt good in that it loosened me up and this was a great workout for doing this. We ended up doing a ton of yardage in the 70-75 minute swim.

i went 5.25 on the 500 and felt pretty good despite stiffness in my tris and lats. The young Jr racer was in my lane again today which kept me pushing throughout the whole workout. She did 800s to my 1000s and I did everything I could to finish when she finished. This was the first set of 1000s I have done in quite a while and probably the best I have done since I got back in the pool. I went 10.35, 10.41, 10.37. The last one in particular I had to push the whole way whereas the first one I got in a groove and cruised.
