Jersey Gunk--Early December
Well swam at Colony Zones and had a decent meet since I was battling a cold or something.
Had some fair results I guess abit off my best but considered my head wasn't in the game I was fairly happy. I made improvements over last year still so some of my LCM gains have remained.

I got back in the water late last week doing a few 1200 yard drill/kick workouts.
Took until Sunday 14th to get a real workout in and I stole Fort's which she stole from Chris but I used human intervals for the kicking but I did it all and felt pretty manly considering I'd been ill.

    It's actually a good workout...and with grouchy shoulders it was a nice break!

    Rich, give yourself a lot more credit than you have. You have had some serious advances in your swimming in the year that I have known you and that is due solely to the work that you have put in.

    If those are human kick intervals, I must be a legless alien.

    Those were monofin kicks...they were challenging!

    Thank you, I don't feel AS bad now. I hope you at least cried a little after that kick set. Or puked a lot
