I was crippled by that long course workout. It was billed as a sprint workout. Ha! That was a crazy sprint conditioning workout, not nearly enough rest to be a true sprint workout. I was going to leave before the last set, but I was shamed into staying -- a rare occurrence. It's been 7 days in a row and I'm beat this am, so will take today off. Looks like it could be pouring during Lebo lap swim anyway.

    You are definitely headed into middle distance territory - let us know if/when you feel the urge for a 2IM - you would rock it.

    You sound like Patrick! It was one of my best events in my younger swim life. But it is really beyond me at this point. 100 IM is hard enough.
