Taper News:

Was trying to do sort of a meet warm up. Meet warm ups confuse me. Sometimes I feel stale/haven't got the cobwebs out on my first event and sometimes I'm fine without too much warm up. Never sure how much to do. Glad I'm starting my meet out with 100s each day though.

I'm guardedly optimistic about the hip. It feels better, though still sore. Dr. Jimby is right that these things take a long time to heal.

Still holding at congestion only, haven't lapsed into the sinusitis/bronchitis malaise I've been so prone to in the past.

Felt pretty good in the water today. Decent DPS, fly felt good.

After no running or spinning for almost 3 weeks, I'm starting to feel like a gooey Pillsbury Dough Boy.

Haven't really set any time goals. Unlike many, I don't usually set specific goals, although I may have general goals (do PBs) or reach goals (like to bust out another good 100 IM time) in mind. Of course, I wouldn't mind seeing a .99 a couple times. I do plan to take my 100 back and 100 fly out a bit faster. If I die like the drop dead sprinter that I am, that's OK.

    No dying.

    That's what I'll say to myself when the burn hits.

    Take slow deep breaths, you only have to make a couple more days.

    I rolled myself last night and found a new muscle. No idea what it is called or why it was sore, but I thought "Hey, Fort would love to hear about me crying on the floor at the discovery of a new muscle." Quite sore.

    Glad that you are slowly recovering from that pain in the ass Jim seems to be such an expert on.

    Thanks Jules and Q. Good luck in Richmond! Tell The Little Devil good luck in the 400 IM.

    That roller is a torture device. I'm suspending further use of it now until after the meet. Trying to take deep breaths. It's not quite as bad as I remember last time. The urge to run is dampened somewhat by the hip and cold.
