    upper left bicep is just really sore now. Probably some minor tendonitis there. There is nothing inherently wrong with my shoulder (at least I don't think...x-ray showed normal, and I have full, pain free range of motion). With no meets on the horizon, now is as good a time as ever to rest in some shape or form!

    I mean, when you put it that way, it almost sounds sexy.

    No, I didn't.

    Trip: "Let's start on the 30:00, and the set takes 25:50."
    Calvin: "Ok."
    **Approximately 25:50 later**
    Calvin finishes on the 55:41.
    Trip: "You miscounted"

    Numbers don't lie Trip. I can count to eight, ten times. :00, :35, :10, :45, :20, :55, :30, :05, :40, :15

    As soon as my shoulder feels better, I am going to swim the 10x200 and take you out behind the woodshed and beat you like a red headed step child.

    Thanks. Was a tad disappointed #6 wasn't 1:01 as well, but was pleasantly surprised that #5 ended up being the fastest!

    Recovery swim makes perfect sense after reading your prior workout.

    Ya’ll distance swimmers indeed swim like animals. I would’ve respirated pool water after the 2nd 100.

    The comment to the virtual 200 where I recognized as “interesting turns”, referred to #2 and 3. It was how you pull into the wall fully UW and then flip. I have never seen that before. Obviously works! I tried it but my legs caught too much water

    PB solo - that's gotta be very satisfying. Good work!

    It was a gal! I'm assuming mixed gender heats still make you eligible for records?

    SWEET! For some reason that 2:00 barrier is SOOOO hard to get under. I imagine that a faster, indoor pool with great temperature control will help. And, if it gives you some energy as you age, I was 2:02.9 when I was 36, then managed to get down to 2:00.4 when I was 45 years old. Other than a couple of times in the bodysuit era, I haven't made it under 2:00 ... but you're still young, so you can do it!

    If y’all end up racing in a therapy pool, at least for the upper hand you’ve acclimated to the heat (to some degree?). 50’s won’t be bad at all though, but it looks like there’s a 200 fl on list, for one

    Can’t imagine how you kept all 8 within under 0:02, and the first 6 close to 0:01. What effort level pace was that, 50, 100?
    full tilt sprint. Like I was racing a 50 FL, one at a time. No "opening 50 of 100" feel or anything like that.
