Man, it really takes me long to recover from a big meet. I'm not sure how much of this is physical versus emotional/mental, but I still feel like crap in the water. Today's performance on the Broken Mile was a little better and I had a few moments in the set, but never longer than a 25, where my stroke felt connected and good. My goal was to hold 35 - 1:11 - 1:48 and I pretty much did that. It wasn't a slog, but it also was pretty far from being smooth:

  • I had a brutally long day trip yesterday over to LA that required me to wake up at 4am. While I was pretty tired on Tuesday night, I got myself into one of those loops where I got worried that I wouldn't get enough sleep and then proceeded to not be able to fall asleep until right near midnight. Somehow I survived the day and even had some decently good client and team meetings, but I'm still pretty whacked from that.

    I can relate in the sleep front. When I have to get up early I generally keep myself awake worrying about going to sleep or worrying about oversleeping. It's weird how that works.

    Looking forward to to swimming with you on Monday and Tuesday.
