I'm very sore and stiff today. I'm getting ready to go to my first Master Swim meet in December. I'm ready, as far as the strokes go, but I still had one thing left to learn. I still need to really get good at flip turns. I learned how to do them at practice yesterday. For two hours, my coach had me flipping over and over. Once I could do the freestyle flip turn, she decided that I was going to learn a backstroke flip turn. Those are kind of scary, because you are coming into the wall blind. I still have this fear of cracking my skull against the wall, but she seemed confident that I won't. It did always work... There are muscles that I didn't even know existed that are sore today. I feel like I've been hit by a truck, but at least I'm feeling better about the meet now. Oh well, off to take some ibuprophen!
