I really enjoyed my swim at Bethel Park today. It's such a nice contrast to Sewy with 2/3 of the pool being really deep and digital clocks everywhere. But the best is that the lifeguards let you go off the blocks. So I worked on a lot of short speed today. Back to 100 pace work tomorrow, I think.

Drylands have become somewhat frustrating to me. My shoulders and elbows are just too fragile to do any heavy upper body work these days. My elbows don't even like the TRX core work that I like to do ... The trials and tribulations of being a geezer jock.

I wish the Sprint Classic were in 2 weeks. I'm getting a little antsy for a meet ...

Can anyone tell me how to add a custom block to the right side of my blog?
