Great start to the training week on the "heels" of a not-so-good Sunday

My Tarheels lost yesterday. Let me re-phrase that... They gave the game to Georgetown in regulation, then Georgetown handed them their heads on a platter in overtime. I have been an avid Carolina fan for more than 40 years, and I can not recall any game where they had a collapse like the one yesterday. I'm still stunned that they lost. I guess I'll have to keep wearing my 2005 NCAA Champions hat another year until they take it all in 2008.

On to training. I increased my swim this morning to 1,000 meters (40 laps) from 800 meters (32 laps) last week and felt extremely strong from start to finish. Swimming to me has always been about breathing rhythm and timing, and I finally felt comfortable with it this morning. My strokes also seem to be getting stronger and in better form. Tonight I will go and work out on the machines and then do my hour on the stationary cycle, hoping to get in at least 15 miles or more.

Sorry about your Tar Heels. I couldn't believe it when I was watching it on TV.
