A little less yardage than I expected today. With it being Monday, I expected the workout to consist of something similar to 400s on a short interval. But I did the workout as written, though I decided to swim in the yards part of the pool, in case the set became more difficult than a taper workout needed to be.

Not much effort was expended today. My legs are still sore from all the standing I did in Atlanta, plus the water was pushing 83 degrees. The air was about 48 degrees, and it was the coldest it's been since last February. I'm worried that the weather this weekend will not be amicable for us, and that we'll be feeling the chill as we step up on the blocks to race.

The next few days will most likely be rough for me. There's a point in the middle of the taper when my body is so busy recovering that nothing feels good. Today it was my legs. What will feel horrible tomorrow?
