A somewhat relaxing workout today. My heart rate stayed down, and even though I wanted to do some sprints, I stayed aerobic. I wanted to feel better than I did yesterday, and for the most part, I believe I did that. My legs feel stronger and I am more prepared to race tomorrow. Though I am only doing a 50 free and a 50 breast, it will help me set up the rest of the weekend.

I'm getting on a plane to Seattle in about 90 minutes! I'm excited to go to this pool. I've raced there twice before, and swam well both times. The first time was in 1991, when I swam in the spring nationals and qualified for the Pan American Games team with my third-place finish in the 100 breast. The second time was at Masters nationals in 2007. I swam some Masters best times there after a couple of years of being in a short course slump.

I am not bringing my laptop with me, so I will report on my swims when I return on Monday! Have a great weekend!
