I felt like dead weight today. It was like dragging a sack of wet potatoes behind me.

I will never do the 3x200s again. If I ever needed proof that I shouldn't be racing butterfly outside of an IM race, that set was it. But I'm still doing the 100 fly at nationals. I already signed up. Too late to turn back now. All I can hope for is that they don't allow us to swim the sixth event, which is the 100 fly for me.

And I found out what meet Ryk Neethling was preparing for last week. South Africa is having its nationals this week, and I guess he came back to Tucson for a day or two before heading back to the southern hemisphere.
There's a lot more to this, but I'll guide you to my thoughts on the US Masters Web site instead of leaving them here.
