I'm still chugging along. I wrote the distances on my FLOG after I finished but had a few blanks when I went to remember the actual work-outs. I was surprised that I could remember all the main sets. I went to Baltimore for a conference so didn't workout. I could have found a place to swim if I really wanted to (In the past, I swam with both Ancient Mariners in Bethesda and at Maryland Masters-UMBC) but decided to take it easy. The meeting was fun. I got to see lots of people and the presentation for the clinical trial that I work on was recognized for being the highest scoring clinical abstract at the entire meeting so that was exciting. I am toying with the idea of going to the SCM meet at the Woodlands in November. My husband will be going to be out of town so I could only go for one day which is fine. I am not a huge short course fan (either SCM or SCY) so I am undecided. I like the idea of having a goal and I always have fun at the meets. They have relays at the meet so I think if I can drum up some team members to go and swim relays that might be the deciding factor. This might be difficult though as my team is on a bit of a down swing as far as meet participation is concerned. I'll see.
