Swimming Keeps the Anger Away

I know that I'm in a better mood (by far) on days that I have swum. And it seems some of you agree with me. Wallace just wrote me that he has decided not to make major decisions on non-swim days because his disposition tends to be negative. I know he was kidding, but you know what? That might not be a bad idea. Yesterday I didn't swim, and in the middle of the day I called my business partner and started trying to punch holes in our plan. Why? At the time I wasn't sure. I just felt negative. Now that Wallace has reminded me of the chlorine effect I am thinking it is because I was swim-frustrated. Just a thought. Take note of your moods swimmers. Are we all so nutso as to have our daily dispositions ruled by whether or not we go back and forth between plastic lane lines before the sun comes up?

I think yes. And I think today will be a good day, because this morning:

*warmup: 6 x 100's free descending

add pull gear for:

*400 moderate, 2 x 100's fast
*300 moderate, 2 x 100's fast
*200 moderate, 2 x 100's fast

*9 x 100's done repeatedly as easy medium fast

remove pull gear for:

easy 200
