Laid off the AFAP work today, trying to give my body a little break, and focused on 100 pace with some breath control. I have a massage tomorrow, so hopefully my body will be ready to go on Thursday with about 10+ more hard training days to go before I taper for NE Champs. I'm going to do the same taper I did before Indy last year, which was shorter than usual because I knocked lifting off early. Despite almost no lifting for months, my upper body seems just as stacked and tank-like as usual.
I've been having fin issues lately. I've used Water Gear fins for years. But when finally ripped and I tried to replace them, my new ones didn't fit. One size is too big and the next size down seems too tight. I've been using the tight ones and wondering if maybe that was contributing to some cramping. I ordered a pair of Sprint long blade fins and they look just perfect. Going to try them out tomorrow.
Interesting article of passive vs active rest for sprinting: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15778899. Though who goes 60% during active recovery? Not me.
