I swam the 1 hour postal last evening. No funny stuff this time. I came home from work to a chiropractic treatment and my neck was really bothering me through the past two days and the treatment wrecked me for the rest of the day. I went to the Y after the treatment to swim a 500 to relieve any signs of excess stress hormone cortisol, that I think accumulates in my cells after a shift at work. I took 200mg of celebrex, and then relaxed for most of the day. I took 200mg again at 1500 and iced, which I think helped. I swam without cramping and my neck was pretty much okay, splitting 1000s at 14:48, 29:56, 45:28 and finishing at 3935yards. The 1650 split was 24:32, Tuesday it was 24:21.
John Morales, who I think is the team leader, he is also one of the most gifted swimmers in Santa Rosa, sent an email yesterday saying that he was thinking of a sprint set with fast suits. Several swimmers showed up with suits and we swam some some speed sets.
