And it started so well

I had a swim workout tonight. And it well very well. I did 3x300 race start simulations. I did the same workout last week and it did not went that well. Whereas today I did it to the T! Great. Then I did 50s with bands and I felt strong and efficient. I could really feel that I was pulling through water nicely with my whole forearm. Sweet.
But then I did 50s swim and I got this really annoying cramp in my foot. The top part of my right foot and toe. I massaged it, stretched it, tried to walk it off but it always came back!!!! And it kind of hurt.
Grrr. I was running out of time anyway so I called it quits. Missed 3 50s and cool down will not have any influence on Sunday.

Also, it is probably just me being overly paranoid but I think that my ITB feels that I am up to something and it decided to protest. I hope it is only me imagining things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Bummer about the foot cramp. Stop stressing about the race (easier said than done I know!) but I *do* believe that mental/emotional stress manifests itself physically in the weakest part of your body (for you, ITB... for me, calf... for others, low back, etc) So the physical pain is real but somehow stress brings it on. Eliminate the stress! And if you figure out how to do that, let me know. :)

    Great about the faster swim though!
