Weekly training

This week has been spoilt a bit by Cameron having a couple of nights waking up. Last night he woke up 4times, it doesn't happen very often anymore and we are definitely not used to it.

Swimming on Monday was fantastic and I was on a high, position seemed really good therefore legs floated up which resulted in a really great propulsive kick. So Wednesday and Friday I tried to replicate it, I couldn't so although I didn't swim badly (think fist gloves) I'm after perfection. I tried to reconcile myself that the great swimmers like Ian Thorpe were also on the same search for perfection...although I think they were a bit closer than me.
