was all psyching myself up for an IM set (especially after reading about pwolf's weekend swims), then get a distance set instead. worked out well, my legs are still sore from my run yesterday, and the easier swims allowed me to stretch

Sounds like no swimming on Thurs-Fri due to the holiday. I may make one of my rare Sat appearances, especially with beginning my vacation next week. All of a sudden that vacation I've been planning for a few months starts next Monday. I did contact a team for the first part of my trip, and may swim with them a few times. Not looking forward to a ~12 hr plane ride, but at least it will be over with.

Planning for weights tonight, as long as I get home at a decent time. Tomorrow will be swim in the morning, and hopefully a run in the evening.
