100 EZ (free & back)

MS: 9x100 free @2:00 3x(EZ, mod, hard) COUNT STROKES on 2nd & 3rd 25
(FYI in a 25m pool with less than 2ft of water, no lane lines, no gutters, I swim 9strokes/25m for EZ/mod and 9.5-10strokes/25m for hard)
100 EZ (free & back)

KS: 6x50 kick @1:20, sprint last 12.5m

Notes: it's fascinating to look back six or so months to when I first went through Sheila Taormina's Swim Speed Workouts. I've definitely gotten faster. I'm also a lot smaller! One change is that my stroke rate has increased *very slightly* at higher-end speeds. My guess is that I don't glide (or overglide) and just keep those strokes going without much slowing down within the stroke cycle.

Still seriously trying to get rid of post-IMJ, post-injury fluff, but I'm on my way. Back on the vegan wagon ... hold on, let me put my Oreo down, it's getting crumbs in the keyboard. What? Oreos are vegan!

Sometimes, discretion is the better part of valor ... today was going to be a long aquabike (like Iron length!) but cutting it was definitely the right call. I fell asleep on the bed in my shorts and sport bra right after. Nap and then dinner was AWESOME!

This happened before the bike. Looking back, I have no idea why.

Swim cords. Pool is constantly busy.

Today, I felt like shit, and I hated life, the universe, and everything.

I did an A-Z gratitude list ... and why I was grateful for each thing ... who knew apples were so awesome?! ;)

I felt somewhat better, but also could accept that I was just feeling shitty and it was indeed a crap day for no reason. And that's okay.
