      Great news! Though, strep throat can be a real problem. Apparently it's getting more and more resistant to antibiotics, so be sure to take all your meds, never miss any!

      Glad you have a diagnosis. Strep is SO weird, and can present in such different ways. Glad the doc was keen enough to suggest the test. My son once went in with only hives (all over his body, mind you) and the doc did a strep test - ding ding ding! Now, get on your meds, rest a bit, hydrate and get back at it sista! :)

      @Stephanie - that is very odd! i would not have expected strep to be the cause of hives! i was glad we did the test for good measure. i must say i was unconvinced when she said she didn't think it was because the pain was localized to one side of my throat, which doesn't usually happen with a cold. anyway. mending! :)

      I'm impressed! I only swam 50m pool length once, in Europe (never seen one here yet) and it seemed endless the first few laps but then I got the hang of it. Anyway, congrats on another milestone (so to speak) in your swimming experience!

    Slow Fish 900 m 00:28 49:51 pace

    did some intervals. every other lap tried to speed up! :) turns out if you want to swim faster in the water you have to move a lot faster. ;)
    ha.

    • Pierre M.
      Pierre M.

      Depends on your form. If you're swimming inefficiently, you have to thrash harder (and faster). If you're swimming efficiently, you just need to push harder. What you should aim for is no splashing and the feel of water rushing by you without the feel of turbulence. It's something that you'll catch onto, but your sensorium may be different from mine. Anyway, nice 900m!

      Hmmm... that's a bit of a confusing image but I get the gist, that you feel you've just been sort of floating along and think you need to actually do something in order to go faster than that! Your speed looks good to me, though.

      yes. i have taken to "swimming", but it's pretty lazy. which is fine really, i mean i'm not actually trying to turn into a triathlete or anything. I just wanted to add swimming to my bag of tricks for some variety. That said, being slow is getting old. So, y'know...we'll see. ;)

      Ah, to run so fast when you feel like heck! What will you do when you're well again! Nice run. We have hundreds of geese on the pond along my route -- I hope they aren't planning to drain that pond, which has happened in other locations (they make a pond to drain an area, build up, then fill the pond and build there too. Suddenly a whole ecology is gone, kaput!) Anyway, get well, Barb!

      Ugh, change your bedding, air your pillows out, so you don't keep reinfecting yourself. Use hand sanitizer or wash a lot, so you don't keep swapping germs with L and P. Wipe things down. It shouldn't have lingered this long.
