Because I did not swim on Saturday or Sunday, it was imperative that I swam today. I felt OK in the water, but not particularly strong. Did doing weights cause me to not feel the speed I hoped for, or was it taking two days out of the pool?

I wasn't thrilled with the 1:03 in the last 100 free, because I was trying very hard to go fast, and I thought I was going to be 1:01 or better. But again, the speed wasn't there. I didn't do any speed work today, which is not a bad thing, but I will make sure to find my speed again tomorrow!

I'm too tired to write more. I have to be back at the pool at 5:45 for more!
