The athlete has spoken.

Wow, yesterday was tough. I'm having these bouts less and less often and I'm pretty sure that's a good thing. I really am making the switch mentally it's just hard, really hard. But I'm getting there step by step.

This morning I went swimming and the athlete was in fine form. I was going to swim 400m straight again and decided to push it - hard. I wanted to see just how fast I could swim 400m so I went for it. Plus, the last 25m I pulled some extra effort and sprinted to the end. It was hard but it was worth it. I took 1:30 off Tuesday's 400m, that's a significant increase (at least for me). I pushed the 100m too, too it easy on the 50 m, then cranked out the 25 m, it was awesome.

After much mental gymnastics I have decided to post some goals for February. I'm still finalizing them but later tonight I'll post my January totals and my February goals.

I'm glad the athlete is back and ready to kick some ass.
