Guilt...

I am writing this as I sit on my bed...guilt ridden.

Why?

I did not go to swim practice today.

Why?

I was tired. Really tired.

For some reason, I'm never as guilty about missing a workout as I am when I miss a swim practice. I know I'm not going to forget how to swim overnight. And I'm really trying to listen to my body and rest when it calls for it...and this morning called for it.

I need to relax about it.

Seriously.

breathe...relax...and don't forget you ran a killa Half-Marathon just two days ago. C'mon...you can do this IM stuff in your sleep.

don't even worry about...you were not the only one...the pool was pretty empty this morning :) but we did miss you

ditto what Carrie and Jess said...and I'm guessing (b/c I think we're a wee bit alike on this front?!) that the bigger accomplishment for you is to listen to your body. dragging yourself to the pool for one more workout would have been no big deal...you've done that a million times:) we'll both be back splashing around on Thursday!

Many athletes don't realize that rest is just as important as training. Don't feel so bad.
