October 19, 2001
My shoulders ache. The whole week we’ve spent swimming IM’s and stroke. Miles and miles in the water. And this morning, I feel the effects on my shoulders. What will it take to get the kinks out? I stretch… nothing. I over-extend… nothing. Flip over and do a little backstroke. It all aches.

So this is what it feels like to be in training.

I haven’t been here for a decade, maybe longer. It seemed easier in my younger days. I don’t think I ever hurt this bad and we did twice the mileage back then. No pain, no gain.
