I swam for a season with the community college I went to: "Dude, then how come you're so slow in the water?" Truly I have no idea; I digress...
For big swim meets, swimmers shave their entire bodies (except for the inside of your forearms) for speed. It always helps my mental state when I break out the "tools" and get to work.
I'm feeling more "race ready", but the fact that I'll probably miss out on World's has me bummed. There's plenty of time to switch my focus over to USA Championships and I still have a shot at some strong competitive results this season, but I was really looking forward to "The Big Dance".
What I should be doing is focusing on the races I can make and on maximizing my results there.
Heading up to Auburn Friday morning. Good luck to everyone racing the US-Cup Fontana this weekend!
