Spent a lot of time vacillating on whether or not to go to the pool w/the team this AM, or to go do weights & then go do a leisurely swim on my own. Original plan was to swim at lunch with my old buddies, but the city nixed that idea by making the pool only available during ATAC practice time (7:30-10:00am). Ended up going to practice for the first 90 minutes then over to the gym - was so bloomin' tired (2nd day of LCM in ~ 4 months) I had to skip a couple of stations - my right shoulder has been achy for months, and I didn't want to make things worse. Thought I would feel worse in the water today than I did - a tribute to my "amazing" base, I suppose (hahaha!)

600 back/free
3 x 200 Pull - 30 sec rest btwn each
6 x 100 stroke/free @ 2:00 (niiice!)
6 x 100 K @ 2:15
100 easy
300 pull @ 5:00 (got :40 rest)
100 quality kick @ 2:15
3 x 100 back/free @ 1:45
100 quality kick @ 2:15
2 x 50 "fly" @ 1:00
2:00 rest
300 pull @ 5:00 (got :40 rest)
100 quality kick @ 2:15
3 x 100 back/free @ 1:45
100 quality kick @ 2:15
2 x 50 "fly" @ 1:00
200 easy
Total: 4400 LCM (for me - kids had another 45 min worth of torture awaiting them)

Then home to bake bake bake - got three pies done, two kinds of sweet potatoes & the Christmas Eve Lasagne all done, all by myself, not to mention various errands & tasks around the house & last minute gift wrapping. I'm pooped. There's no rest for the weary, I'm afraid - just because tomorrows Christmas doesn't mean I'll get a break - if mom doesn't do it, it won't get done.
