    Aaarrrggghhhhhhh. Sprained my wrist or tendons or something at the gym - not great timing when the nationals are five days away. Must have done it with either the goblet squats or mountain climbers. Can't even hold a coffee cup in my left hand!

    Will try a swim this afternoon and see how painful it is.

    Free and back weren't too bad on my injured wrist, but br and fly were excruciating. Doesn't bode well for the 200IM and 400IM next weekend :disappointed:

    Got a late start yesterday. Only 5km.
    Tried to incorporate some technique changes after watching a physics of swimming video regarding spread or cupped fingers. It comes Down in the side of spread.
    Also forced myself to concentrate on my kicking. Currently it is rather weak.
    For my 100m time down to 2:05 average for 5km.
    Saturday I was around 2:09/100m avg For 6.4km
    I am also more aware that I swim faster when others are in the pool, particularly when someone thinks they are racing me. Ha!

    1.5 mi last night. I kept my fins on for a couple of sets to work on body positioning. My legs are sinking again. This hasn't been a problem for months. I'm not sure what's going on...

    only got 3.4km yesterday. Got kicked and scratched too much. Couldn't take it anymore.
    One guy was trying to do crumb crawl with his arms but frog kick win his legs. He also refused to pause even a second at the wall to let swimmers pass. He kicked me a bunch of times.
    I sent a suggestion to the sale guy I see wash trip. Suggested they made a rule for the fast lane that nobody can be in the fast lane doing beat stroke or frog kick if anyone is doing freestyle in the fast lane. It is a safety issue.
