Over five days recently, a range of allergy symptoms accumulated within me, a nasal post drip, watery eyes, sneezing, aching back, etc., & etc.,... building to a miserable, tired and cranky peak on Monday, where after dinner I told my wife I was going to lie down for a minute then return to clean up the kitchen, but I never did until I awakened on Tuesday morning. Since then I seemed to be gradually returning to a better level of wellness. Perhaps that was my problem last week, rather than overtraining.
Today I felt OK in the water as I am transitioning towards more IM and stroke sets. In Set 2, I did 8x25 as timed underwater SDK to see where I was at in terms of speed. I suppose 15s and 14s are a solid effort, but I am hopeful that with continuing practice I can become better adapted to the hypoxic component as well as faster.
