I think my increased yardage mixed with starting to go back to doing some time in the gym on the elliptical is starting to pay off. I’m feeling a little skinnier and about 3/4 of my muscles are sore at any given moment! Today was just a swim day because I started to run out of time and I have a bunch of stuff to get done tonight.

For tonight’s swim I did the stock warm up and then switched up to some 100′s at a fairly quick pace and 200′s at a medium pace. I was swimming solo tonight so I broke out the SwiMP3 and kind of retreated into my own little world.

I spent a lot of time contemplating what events to enter for the Rose Bowl meet coming up soon. I’m really not sure what to do with myself since as a general rule I avoid pool events ≥ 200 yards and that’s the only kind of stuff they have available. I’m thinking maybe the 500 free which I haven’t done since high school and possibly the 200 fly? Or since I have a lot of open water to prep for do all the freestyle races (500/1000/200)? I don’t know… I’m going to keep agonizing over it in my spare time :)
