My arms are just sore and feel like lead. Today I have cardio and nothing to do with my arms so that is good. 

Swim Endurance #2 will be tough tomorrow.

Open Water Swim Training

So with the plan in mind of swimming 5k 10k then the channel we officially begin intense swim training this week.

I will be swimming over a mile anytime I get into the water. Plus 2 cardo spots a week. I think these will be done at the gym during the day and I'll swim at night.

Either way the total immersion type swimming is amazing. I'd recommend the new dvd to anyone looking to learn to swim better. Also if you live in evanston and want to learn to swim definetly see Craig Strong at the YMCA. He has been a great teacher.

Life as I know it (this week)

coaching appointments are taking off. I finally have a few with people who seem like good candidates. That is great. 

Swimming has been great and intense training starts soon. 

That is the bulk of my life. Brian and Pat are moving in. The folleys of that and the halloween store should provide an interesting 2 months. 

Quote I like

"Rarely is it effective advocacy to try to convince the judges that the case law compels them to rule in one's favor. For if that were so, the case probably would not have have gotten to the appellate stage. The most effective method of arguing a case is to identify the purpose behind the relevant legal principle and then show how that purpose would be furthered by a decision in favor of [your] position." How Judges Think, Richard A.
