6200 yards

On the 1000 straight I noticed the "Saturday's Warrior" was over about 4 lanes in the shallow end and was neck and neck with me. I was only 200 into my 1000 so I decided to see if I could stay with him. He usually goes about 1-2 feet faster per 50 on distance sets. This time the role was reversed and I was pushing him. By the time I finished he was back about 1/2 a pool length.

I was watching he stroke afterwards. Man he makes his stroke look so effortless! Such a nice stroke. Very efficient. He could probably go all day.

My shoulder is still giving me trouble not really when I swim, but out of the water it hurts when I lift my arm above shoulder level. Double dosing the glucosamine hoping that makes a difference. So far it hasn't.
