general notes:
* our coach is on vacation this week and one of the age group coaches is filling in for her. probably for the best. on Monday he said he didn't have a set, but created the one above for me and the other guy who did the meet, kind of as we went along.

* I can't remember ever being so worn out and sore from swimming before. heck when I did the 4k o/w a few weeks ago, by Monday I was fine. there's definitely a difference between o/w and meets. this past Monday I still felt worn out and sore. I don't know how people swim Fri-Sat-Sun meets; thankfully I didn't even consider the Sunday part of the meet (originally I had thought of the 200 free/breast, 50s of those, and the 800 free).

* I had wanted to do something on least an easy stretch-out swim, and was planning to. then of course we had a crazy pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoon, so that didn't happen.

* I was thinking back to when I last did a meet, I think about 5 years ago. at that time I was either running or cycling, in addition to swimming 5-6 times a week. I probably weighed 20-30 pounds less. I am actively trying to shed 15 pounds from where I'm at; my doctor said that 1-2 pounds a month is a better approach than a massive amount at once. And doing the smaller amounts makes it easier to keep a steady weight.

* I really want to do the Deep Eddy Mile in a few weeks, but they say you need at least a timer, and possibly another helper. I may take a chance and just show up solo and see if I can convince someone to help me, maybe do a trade. I've been wanting to try that pool anyway. My other half will be out of town so no help there. The registration fee is a bit steep...
