Happy Mother's Day to all mommy forumites, bloggers and lurkers!

I took the day off yesterday. I was fully booked with soccer, a regatta and dinner with friends. Saturday is my usual rest day anyway.

Today, I slept in, was pampered a bit and then went on a 6 mile trail run. I drove to a relatively easy trail so I wouldn't be a muddy billy goat. It was a gorgeous day for running -- bright sunshine, no humidity and 70s.

I'll get back to the pool tomorrow. I'm having a great time following SCY Nationals this weekend. Lots of very fast swimming!

I looked very quickly at the event rankings from last year to this year in 50 free, 50 back and 50 fly. (I realize they're not final yet, and more times will be added.) I noticed that there was a .3 drop in the 50 back (30.5) and 50 free (25.6) to make Top Ten. But there was a +.1 increase in the 50 fly. This does cause me to wonder, as I've mused, whether the B70 does not help as much in fly. I haven't looked at breaststroke yet, but I would wager that there is even more than a .3 drop there. Last year, my time of 34.1 from Zones would have been #7; this year that time won't make top ten.

    It's not a Renoir painting or the Kentucky Derby!

    Oh, stop! lol I just meant it's not that atmosphere. Mostly just huge vats of gatorade everywhere.
