2006-05-25 Swim

I'm sure glad I videotaped myself swimming the other night, because it appears to have had absolutely ZERO effect on my form :-). I videotaped again tonight, and spent the entire swim focusing on the four biggest errors spotted the other night. The result? I looked even worse :-).

For added benefit, I managed to get muscle cramps for only the 3rd time in my life. I was making an effort to point my toes more, but eventually the bottoms of my feet totally seized. The bottoms of my feet? I didn't even know a person *could* cramp there!

Then, this morning (friday), I had to get up at 5:00AM for a business trip to the NYC area (nothing like driving 3 hours each way for a 2 hour face-to-face.) I woke up, stretched, and immediately got a massive cramp in my left calf. As I type this entry (5:30PM), the calf still hurts a bit. I have a race in 14 hours. I do not expect good results :-).
