I wanted to do some easy speed hypoxic work today. I did very little hypoxic work during the long course season. Need to ramp it up again for short course underwaters, especially on my recovery days.

The parachute work is just killer. I probably should save the parachute for the end of a speed day rather than a recovery day. I've gotten in 5 swims this week + 2 drylands thus far, and I'm pretty beat. Glad I have a massage tomorrow. I'm taking tomorrow off and may just do yoga on Sunday.

Mr. Fort is running in the Lehigh Marathon on Sunday to attempt to get his BQ. Unlike his recent two marathons, his training had been pretty solid and injury free. His training partner is running the last 20 miles with him to get a solid long run in before he competes in the Chicago Marathon. He definitely has some taper bitchies.

The sun finally shone here today after many days of pouring rain!
