A new P.R. (which, in the pool is the only time I record "personal records" during training, and at that only my T-100 pace, which is how long it takes to swim 100 yards) today in the water - 100 yards in 1:22, besting my old P.R. by 2 seconds. Completely shocking to me. Of special interest is now much stronger my left side felt after all this therapy I've been doing to strengthen my hip and back - I found it much easier today to keep my left elbow up high out of the water, which gave me a lot more power and strength during my catch. The pool was closed for maintenance last week, so this was the first time in a week I'd been swimming, and I felt really strong. Yeah baby!

(Oh, and ps - if work wasn't so busy I could finish posting my $.02 about the IMWI swim. Anyway, I'm working on it, in case any of you are sleepless with anticipation.)

Not sleepless with anticipation, but definitely looking forward to reading the next installment of the $.02 series. The swim is worrying me most these days, so it'll be great to get a thoughtful, retroactive perspective on it.
