Well, I feel pretty plastered after that effort, and felt tired during it. In retrospect, after pushing my body to the max at a meet when I wasn't quite 100%, I should have limited myself to a recovery swim yesterday. Instead, I did that double -- anxious to ramp up my training again. I should give away my ivy league degree and put on my dunce cap! I feel a bit better after stretching some, but my shoulders and back are quite sore. Hopefully, I can sleep it off ...

I've been wondering how to approach both USMS Nationals and Canadian Nationals. So I looked back at my blog, very handy. The last time I rested for two big meets was Zones and Nationals in 2013, both of which were great meets for me. I laid off the weights 10 days before Zones and then for the three weeks between Zones and Nationals. So I guess I'll adopt the same approach this time around wrt weights. I also see that I rested a week for Zones, bumped it up for a week after and then tapered two weeks for nationals. So I guess I have a plan!

One thing that I also noticed looking back at my blog is that I used to do more recovery workouts than I seem to be doing these days ... so perhaps I shouldn't worry that I have to do one tomorrow. My workouts also seem to be a bit unimaginative these days -- probably from no longer writing the HIT workouts in the workout forum.
