    PM SCY w/ Trip @ LRRC "The End"

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    this is the end, my only friend, the end
    of our elaborate plans, the end
    of everything that stands, the end
    no safety or surprise, the end
    I'll never look into your eyes again

    Have some possible options for a pool next week, but my wife may bar me from swimming. I think she was only going to let me keep going as long as the LRRC stayed open!

    This may be my last blog post for a while. Governor is ordering all gyms to close. Still waiting to see how that affects the LRRC. If this is my last post, I'll catch you all on the flip-side. Or I won't.

    Trip and I made sure to go out with a bang.

    SHOUT OUT: Everyone who raced. Had a sizeable group today (although in hindsight not the best given current situation), and everyone was throwing down. This set is rough. Would have liked to have been under 2:00 on all of them, but given how worn down I have felt the last 10-12 days, I will take a 1:56 in practice!

    Results:
    11/24/18 (SCY) - 1:59.11 (57.15/1:01.86), 1:59.98 (58.78/1:01.20), 2:00.91 (59.16/1:01.75), 2:02.96 (1:00.34/1:02.62) (Nike brief)

    I am not sure if it was the time change, but I was just totally not feeling it today in either practice. This morning's set I could barely make the sendoff and this afternoon's set was just pure hell. I had to really compartmentalize the set, and take one 100 at a time. If I looked past the next 4 lengths of the pool, I would start to fall apart. Trip was sneaky and threw down a swift 1:00 on the final one as well, trying to sneak up on my winded ass, but I think I may have just gotten him at the touch
