OMG swimming SUCKED today! I did catch up drills the entire time, for the most part. Sometimes I'd forget to, and then I'd remember and grumble and get back to it.

Ironically I didn't go slower, although it sure felt like it. I guess that's the point, though, isn't it? If you stroke RIGHT you GO FASTER!

Kara is making me do this in hopes I can get faster. I sure hope it works. I have spent hours literally reading up, watching Youtube videos, and practicing on dry land my stroking. There were a few times today I actually felt like I was moving through the water faster. Was I? I don't know. I guess we just keep trying.

Kick drills slow me down...big time.

But the rest of the swim went great. I did a series of sprint and endurance drills, 1200 yards in all. At 1000 yards I was thinking "Wow, this kind of sucks..." and then I realized I'd never swam 1000 yards HARD before! That made me feel GREAT!

I also did my fastest 100 clocking in at 59 seconds.

Had Roy record me today and I saw two big problems. 1) I drop my head, which has to slow me down. Apparently I am studying my belly button while I swim. 2) I have noodle arms. I need to get some strength in my frame and bring my elbows up. I'm going to send the video to a girl who is helping me (thankee) and see what she sees.

Sucky sucky run! My legs just felt heavy and tired the entire time. Plus, I have to say, The Extra Mile Podcast is PAINFULLY boring! I mean shoot me in the head boring. Who CARES about the woman who recorded 15 minutes of stuff and then looked down and it wasn't recording? And why does she have to record it onto a podcast submission and tell us about it four times? And why doesn't Adam EDIT THAT OUT? Who gives a flying fart through a rolling donut? I was listening to the episode I was actually interviewed on (while running with a friend) and I couldn't even GET to my interview because the dipsy doodle woman before mine was so boring I actually went back and listened to Wait Wait Don't Tell me a SECOND TIME!
