February 21

Decent swim this morning, I concentrated mostly on drills. I would feel good for a bit, then get out of sorts. I did flip turns almost exclusively without too much of an issue. I did 3 x 100yd swims at the end, the first 2 were right at 2:00, which I was pretty disappointed in (felt I was going faster). My 3rd I pushed it and came in at 1:42. My main issue right now is breathing and kicking. My legs are getting pretty tired after about 75-100 yds, which is no good. More pool time definitely needed.

I had a work dinner tonight at a great restaurant. I knew I was going to cheat going in.

On another note . . . I have something potentially very exciting that I am working on. More to come.
