I was glad that I opted for a recovery workout today. I felt really tired in the water after last night's practice. I find it somewhat harder to swim the next day if I swam the night before as opposed to noon the day before. As usual, the hypoxic work was much easier in the warmer water. I still got a couple calf cramps along the way. I read recently that cramping is really a result of nerve over-stimulation, not all the other long suspected causes.

I signed up for the 1/24 Buffalo meet and booked a hotel. Since it was a flat entry fee, I signed up for 5 events, planning to scratch 1-2 depending on how fast the meet runs.

I finally got around to stretching today. I should not take my flexibility for granted.

    Since I am now coaching on Saturday mornings I am unable to do my regular yoga class and need to find another way to focus on stretching because I agree it's a very important. It's so easy to overlook stretching.

    Easy to overlook stretching and shoulder/scapular exercises ... And sometimes those little things make a huge difference and keep us pain free.
