Just follow Mike

my little linebacker

So I'd been out of the pool for a while... not so much for injury sake... but because it's football season.... No not that kind of football.. in Florida girls flag football is a spring sport... and my little 15 year old is starting wide receiver/linebacker on the varsity team.
Games on Mon/Wed have knocked me out of my normal masters swim routine so last night I was back at it... being spring break and all...

3500 yds... I felt the best/sleekest/fastest I ever have in the water.

One of the things I like so much about masters is that I don't really have to think... I just follow Mike. Mike is probably old enough to be my dad... rides his bike 300 miles a week... and is the quiet, unassuming  "lane leader" in the guppy lane.... and all I do for 90 minutes is follow his feet. Which I did and kept up better than I ever have.

Last night, however, my shoulders hurt so badly that I had trouble sleeping.

Still managed to crawl out of bed and do 2x spin this morning...

Press on!
