Commentary:

Still gradually improving health wise. Geez, does it have to take so long?! Still having some nasty sinus pain too, so heading back to the neti pot. I don't like to use my pool as a gigantic neti pot like Jimi.

I'm slightly gruntled by my training in March. I feel like I've gotten somewhat off track. I'm trying to placate myself by noting, as Speedo and Chris have, that sometimes the body needs a break. Still, I'm ready to get back to regular training. I think I'll add back some aerobic work for a few weeks, but still focus on speed and strength in both the pool and gym. It's hard to believe it's only 2 months until Nats!

WRT drylands, I saw a mention of a "snatch balance" exercise on the Cross Fit facebook site. I asked for and they sent me a video. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrYjUy1BiI4"]YouTube- CrossFit Snatch[/ame] Looks like it's worth trying, a nice variation of a couple exercises.

And great news wrt to my B70 customer service issue. After sending a third email, I got an email from the Pres of US Ops asking me to give him a call and I spoke to him last night. He apologized for the confusion/delay in my order, and mailed me both a new nero comp and a nero TX kneeskin. I am thrilled! I will get to try out the new B70 kneeskin at my meet this weekend. I asked Mini Fort about her Speedo and, as mentioned on the forums, she did say it stretched out very quickly.

The rest of the day is super super busy. I have 4 kids practices to chauffeur around too, as Mini has added travel volleyball to the schedule. I will try to stretch tonight. I simply haven't had the energy for it on other nights. I have an ART appointment tomorrow, so I guess the timing for that is good given my delinquency.

    Ha! I'm sure they have no idea. I think they just felt bad it had been so long. I was surprised to get that email this am. But back ups are good! I know, from sorry experience, that one must have a back up in the bag!

    See? You need extra everything. Do you remember 2008 LCM Zones (the "Big Chill" weekend) when my cap burst moments before my 50 free, I had no extras, and Barb ran down the pool and handed me hers just in time?

    Ah, I remember that swim too. That was a breakthrough swim and you passed Cheryl on the last length!
