I don't know what happened, but my AH-HA moment from last week didn't seem to translate. I swam at the JPAC so maybe it's a little different length wise? Or maybe I'm more sore than I think I am from yesterday? Didn't feel as fast. I was swimming 200s last week in 3:20 easy...50's in 45 pretty easy too. Frustrating. Hope that wasn't a one-time thing.

One thing I keep telling myself, "If you want to weigh 175 lbs, you have to eat like a 175 pounder." I had some herbal tea tonight and am not hungry in the least.
