Just Add Water

Went to Masters swimming last night for the first time in weeks (illness then sloth).

Today the appropriate muscles are complaining, so my stroke hasn't completely fallen apart, just mostly. The session was more oriented to sprints, which contributes to the complaints. Stayed in lane 4, but dropped back in line.

Frighteningly clear how bad my right-side breathing is. I'm lifting/tilting back my head such that I'm feeling some arching in my upper back.

After the session we had a social outing to Senor Frog's. Thanks to Chuck for organizing. Although attendance at the pool was a bit light, a high percentage went on to the social (17 of us in absolute numbers). Fun times!

Tropical Depression, But I Feel Fine!

Out of hurricane season, but we'll still get the remnants of a tropical depression hitting today.

On the plus side, for the first time in almost two weeks I feel healthy. Don't know what that bug was - it didn't really hit the respiratory system, but my immune system was surely put to work.
