I've been an awful blogger.

I was all set to go to Nats.
entered the meet, got my flights, hotel, and rent car.
I made it all the way to the airport gate for a 5:45 am flight. My plane was loading and we had a family emergency, so I cancelled my flight then turned around an went home. I was bummed. I really wanted to swim and see my swim friends.

I followed the meet from home. My training partner Jim Sauer, 57 tore it up.
he swam great in his 2 & 4 IMs, 1 fly, 2bk and had a OK 2 FLY, he reminded himself if you go too hard on your 1st 2 50's in the 2 LCM fly your next 2 50's could be difficult.

I swam last Wed, just an easy taper work out on my own & didn't swim Thu - Sun.
My team was on break.

Trained this morning at Mabel Davis with Dakota, Julie, Tyler & Korey.

odds 400 pace
evens 1500 pace

5 x 150 k on 3:00

assigned: 3 x 400

    'sorry to hear you had to cancel your trip to College Park. We would have been in adjacent lanes in the 100 back and while you would have smoked me, I was looking forward to meeting you. I hope your troubles are soon behind you.
