Barf, puke, ugh, blah, yuck, etc. etc. etc.
I can come up with excuses: I had just raced, I had taken a day off earlier in the week, blah blah blah. But when it comes down to it, I am still slower than I was last month.
If you do the math, it's only 1.5 seconds per lap slower. OK, I can live with that. But still. It's frustrating that I'm getting up at 4:40 a.m. and hitting the pool regularly, yet making no progress. (I know I could go more often, but when would I bike and run?)
I'm not sure if I need to change things up, or find a new swimming plan, or what. I'm going to try to buckle down these next few weeks and see if that makes any difference.
