mental prep

Im studying this morning, and carbo loading for the one-hour swim this afternoon. My heat is at 4:30pm. I think I mentioned this in a past entry: we see how far we can swim in one hour. Ive got butterflys because I really want to swim a 4500, but Im dont know if I can after not swimming much all week (with the T/Th pool @ 64 degress and all). I swam Friday and felt terrible. Im hoping that today will not be a repeat, or else it'll be less that 4000 :(. Im trying to convince James to come watch me, because he has never seen me swim. Im not sure if he is interested though. I really want him to come, at least for a little while. it's only an hour.

It's raining and 32 degrees.
