    SHOUT OUT: Srdan had a great set as well. He only did two rounds (I think he hit that wall on RD2), but was a super speedy 52.5 on the first push 100. Looked over and realized he was making me look like I was standing still! The weather was great with a stiff breeze blowing across the pool to help cool me off. I was quite hot by the time I started RD3. Definitely glad I did a third round so I could find that wall and run head first into it!

    Went with some smooth swimming and some hypoxic work today. Definitely felt stale after yesterday's set. Planning to do "Lactic Hold" with Srdan tomorrow. Going to be a good one I can feel it!

    5000 yards in 70 minutes. I was really happy with the main set. Really felt like I crushed it. Love that feeling. It is what fuels me to get up and go to the pool another day!

    With this practice I realized I have now swam for 18 days straight. Planning on making it an even 19 tomorrow and going out with a bang, then taking Easter Sunday off. I prayed on it, and the Lord, speaking through my wife, said "no swimming on Easter Sunday, ok?" (I took that to be a rhetorical question with only one right answer)

    The pool temperature was the best yet this year, but the pump broke last Friday and now the pollen has accumulated. Visibility is about 3-4 feet at best, and a lot of pollen is just pooling in these sort of "oil slicks" all over the pool. It really doesn't look appealing (but it is harmless and I can't complain because I am lucky enough to have a pool to swim in, so for that I should be thankful).
