Saturday Recover Swim:
I walked into Pitt and the competition pool was closed, again, for some kind of informal kids meet. I ignored the do not swim signs and hopped in a lane anyway. No one kicked me out. I was tired -- can't do more than 3 hard workouts in a row these days -- and did a recovery swim.

Going to stretch for a bit. I am really sore from yesterday's weights. I think I did more reps than usual.
I had an appt with an allergist yesterday. I had a lung function test which according to the doc was "over 100%." I guess this is for the normal person bc I told him I still feel like I recently have had diminished lung capacity. He said that is still certainly possible due to a combo of age, allergies and reflux. Didn't realize I had that but it's apparently very common in endurance athletes. I was telling this to Mr. Fort and he remarked that his trainer told him that the worst aging of the body takes place in the 50s decade. I had thought it was the 60s ... Whatever, I notice it even a subtle change. Oh well, hopefully the drugs will help!
