So my drive to swim at 7:30 AM on Saturday after being out all night proved to be my downfall. I think I ran my body down so low that I picked up a bug. I was able to tough it through warm up on Monday but called it a day because I was coughing so bad. Skipped Tuesday (a move I regret because I feel about the same today and managed to swim some), and made it through two rounds of the sprint set today before I had a coughing fit so bad I started gagging (TMI, I know). I'll try to make it through all of tomorrow's practice and then use the two days off travelling with the UALR team to St. Louis to try and recover. It is just frustrating having a bad week when I am fast running out of weeks before I start to taper.
