The question is: will this make me faster?

Back to square one with swimming. I did get a helpful tip on arm position from a person who was watching and coaching her son, so that was nice.

February is here, so it's time to get to work. No excuses now. I'm not sick, I'm not injured, I have no vacations for a while, and I need to lose some weight again. I'm back up to 187, and I want to get down to 175. Ideally, I'd be down to 170, but I haven't weight that little since junior year of HS, when I could dunk a basketball, run a 2:00 half mile, and had about 3% body fat...so my 170 now would still have some muscle weight redistributed as fat weight. We'll go for 175 for now.

I don't know how I did it, but I hurt my back last Monday. Then I did it again in a different spot on Wednesday. The first one was better by Friday, but the second one got worse over the weekend, to the point that I could barely get out of bed on Sunday. Work was very difficult Monday and Tuesday, but then last night it started to loosen up again. It felt pretty good today, so I thought I'd try to test it out on a short, easy run. I think everything is OK, so I should be good to go from here on out. Good thing too, because it's time to get to work.
