sounds like you've done a decent amount of work this season,
getting sick is no fun, but a reality. Mentally I know you're chomping at the bit to get back in shape. But Nats is really close like less than 3 weeks away. Don't take up your yardage, just proceed with your taper. Go 2,000 to 2,500.
Do some build swims, some sprints, and pace work.
Concentrate on easy speed and correctly splitting your races.
Trust your taper

How about this?
I've been training 5-6 times per week (just swimming, no weights or anything else) 3-4K per workout. I'm in pretty good shape, but just got sidelined with a reallty nasty sinus infection (fever, headache, sore throat, cough, etc.)
It has put me out, today being the 8th day. I am entered in the Nationals in a couple of weeks and wondered how I can regroup and still perform well. BTW - I'm entered in the 50, 100 and 200 (free & fly).
What kind of sets can you recommend to guarantee my stamina for the 200 fly. Broken 100s, 200s, aerobic?I plan on getting a light swim in today to see how I feel. I want to swim everyday until the 16th or 17th. My 1st event will be on the 19th. May not be much to taper off of.
Anyone else with advice? Scratch the 200 fly and have a cold one instead?
