B70 Practice, Wed., Dec 9

For a change of pace and to gage SDKs I wore my very old stretched out B70 with a teensy hole to practice today. Got it on in under a minute.
3 x (4 x 25, no fins)
#1 = easy speed hypoxic shooter
#2 = easy
#3 = fast SDK to 15 meters, then cruise
#4 = easy
On #1, I was kicking 16-17 x instead of my usual 20-21 in poly tank.
On # 3, I was 14 SDKs to the 15 meter mark from a push. I'll take 13 on my starts this weekend.
This seems to not bode well for the transition to f'in kneeskins. Or maybe I'm just more rested than usual and therefore have a better DPK and it's not all B70 related. Geek is probably correct that I'll be bitter after I take my beloved suit off for perhaps the last time. I think I've been swimming in it longer than everyone but Ande. I've swum in it every meet I've competed in since June 2008 except for a couple USA meets.
4 x 25
odds = easy speed fly
evens = easy
1 x 50 back AFAP w/fins
Went high 22. Maybe 3/4-1 of a second faster than with poly tank.
2 x (25 AFAP free + 50 EZ)
Couple of dives off the side with Fortina, the nose clip. I may use Fortina in my 100 IM this weekend.
I need to get organized and print off all my meet info and start packing. Eney recommends that I "practice" rice crispie treat ingestion. I had thought I would just cab it around, but I may rent a car. And I seriously need to update my ipod. Any recommendations?
I felt pretty decent in the water today. Perhaps slightly sluggish from the massage yesterday, though it wasn't a deep tissue. Shoulder and knee are still slightly, but not unduly, twitchy. I'm not going to worry much about "feel." I felt wretched before Rutgers last year and swam well. I've certainly rested more than usual. This is definitely the longest I've been away from the gym for a taper (at least since I've become a gym rat).
Q just alerted me to the fact that my rice krispie bars from Whole Food, in fact, have gluten. Malt, an ingredient = gluten. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_there_g..._Rice_Krispies. This is not going to be easy. I'm just going to eat them anyway, whilst cutting back on other gluten products. It would seem like a tiny amount anyway ... I'll buckle down more after the meet. They're too tasty and efficient to pass up.
