    I had planned to do an easy recovery practice, but that 100/200/300 set was like right in my wheelhouse. Riddle me this, does the fact that I trained for 8 straight weeks when the club team couldn’t excuse the fact that I was one of only four swimmers who made this whole set? Or did it really look that bad that the 35.5 year old took most of them to the cleaners? Either way, felt great today

    SHOUT OUT: Doug and Dr. J for spectating and starting us from the blocks. Big shout out to Srdan. I had really low energy levels today, and the heat and warm water made it worse. He pushed me to push myself more than he probably realizes. Thanks man, I am sorry I didn't bring as much noise as I usually do. Also Srdan had the fastest 100 of the bunch. He made my 1:03- look like slow motion when he stopped the clock at 1:00.9. On round two I got the better of him though
