One of the orders I received from Grayson at my last visit was to "Listen to your body". I've been doing that, and my swims have been relatively short because of that.
Last night I stopped at the pool on the way home and did:
2000 - 4 x 500's - first swim, 2nd kick, 3rd swim, 4th pull all free using the strapless paddles.
The pulling wasn't hard on my shoulder at all. Felt good
Then this morning I got up early and was planning on a 6000+ swim, but the shoulder said no and I wasn't about to push it. Ended up doing:
1000 - 200 breast, 200 back, 200 free, 200 back, 200 breast
1000 kick - 600 with fins, 400 without
500 pull - shoulder started to say no about 400 yards into it.
2700 yards total in 1 hour
Swimming with Goody at GSL this evening. Aiming for face in free the first length, then breast coming back.
