Felt a little draggy at first after the weekend off. But better as I went along. Still tired though. Going to cut the amount of fast swimming quite a bit during this recovery week. I think I might be coming down with something. Really hope not!

Re-reading my blog from last year I see that March was the month of the stretch. That seemed to work out fairly well, so I may try to do it again.

Just saw this on FB: http://www.swimmingworldmagazine.com...nZrz0.facebook. I guess KPN got to the NR before I had another shot at it. This may change what I swim at the Albatross Open.

    If you're a true competitor, you'd sign up for the 100 Fly and 100 IM at Albatross!! Go Fort Go!! Between the two of you, it would be fun to keep going at it!

    I actually was thinking of signing up for those two events anyway now. But no way can I get near the 100 fly record. I don't train for it, and even my best time with the tech suits is 1:09.

    lol.

    It will be interesting to see if she keeps competing now. I always expected her to end her sabbatical at 50.
