Nice easy day today. No far distances, no heavy time standards. Tried to focus on stroke technique stuff instead, since it's recovery week. Honestly, I wasn't all the pleased with how the stroke felt today. Midsection felt droopy, even when I tried pushing my chest how to get my hips up. Think the problem might be that I've been thinking about this week as a rest week and my body is responding by being a little bit lazy. My head is in the wrong place too (literally), so that's messing up my body position as well. Have get around that mindset.
Still, a mile for a rest day is pretty good. I tagged the old guy in the lane next to me with my paddles once because he was doing breast stroke kick too close to the lane line. It was an accident, I swear! Really!
