wow, this is probably the shortest swim workout I've done in ages, that wasn't just a stretch-out at the gym (some of those are just 4-500).

my 25s fast were actually fast. if my Apple Watch is to believed...I did the 2nd 25 breast in :13.

I generally hate tapering. I get irritable and antsy. But this time is different--I've been sleeping more, and I don't seem to mind it. I feel like my body needed a break. After I did a few weeks of crazy distances (plus lifting, treadmill, etc), maybe it was good to pull back.

I fly to AZ early tomorrow. there's a fun swim at Saguaro that I'm planning to get to.

Wednesday is my game day. 7:30am briefing at Saguaro, and they expect everyone to be done in 5 hours. when I did Swim to the Moon I had no idea how long a 10k would take (I predicted 4+ hours), and I was shocked when I finished in about 3. planning for the worst, but hoping for the best this week.
After Wednesday, well I'm hoping its all just gravy. I could always use the excuse before (and after) the 1000, "I just swam 10 miles yesterday"
