Still feeling pretty energetic, but had trouble with cramping again today. I think I failed to drink enough water last night and this am. I also think it was due to the fact -- WARNING RANT COMING -- that I was effen glutened again last night at the swim team banquet. I'm so unspeakably sick of this problem. I hate the fact that it's almost impossible to go out to eat and have anything except salad. I hate that I can't walk in my house and just eat whatever when I'm starving. And I am sick to death of the symptoms. I don't seem to be making much forward progress. RANT OVER.
I saw Cage Fighter at the pool today. He has tendonitis in both shoulders. This is what comes from swimming distance with the FISH, I fear. I advised him to try ART (that recently helped another one of my friends with tendonitis), ramp up the RC exercises and just kick for a few weeks.
I saw one of the swimmers at the Austin Grand Prix was using this high tech foam roller to "prep" for his 100 breast final tonight. http://tweetphoto.com/13358504.
This is sort of interesting too. http://www.boston.com/news/health/ar...exercise_pros/. I do seem to know a lot of people, and masters swimmers, that have personal trainers.
I see Alice and Wonderland and a science project in my future this weekend ...
