I took a very short knap and had a big lunch between workouts. I listened to some tunes and read a little before heading back to the pool with the same excitement I had this morning. I missed the memo about dry land so ended up swimming for 30mins on my own while everyone else did dry land. This afternoon was long and recoveryish which I guess from the sounds of the kids they felt like they needed it. I felt strong throughout and had no ill effects from this mornings swim. Back to masters swimming in the morning and will lift after practice. I may swim a little longer tomorrow morning but I will see how I feel when I wake up, I suspect I will be stiff based on today's yardage.

This was just long. The only hard part was the last 15x50s. It was funny at the end we were asked to take a 10 second heart rate and Jared Butler had 35 where as I had a 22. He was amazed and thought I must be ultra fit, and Neil looked at me and laughed and said that maybe the case but he is just old. I laughed so hard, because it's so true, no matter how hard I try I could not get my heart rate back up that high. I had a really fun day and I am really looking forward to a hard week next week culminating in the USAS COR classic meet next weekend. I have not swum on the back of a training camp since college so it will be interesting to see if I can get here old bones going after all that yardage. The competitive juices are still flowing so I suspect I will do just fine.
