    Well I didn't even throw any weight on yesterday in my first leg lift, but holy hell my legs were sore today. The last 500 was a struggle. Felt like I was dragging concrete blocks behind me. Going to have to better map out my workouts now that I am adding lifting back into the mix. I plan to lift arms tomorrow and then do a recovery practice, but that means Friday may be rough if I am as sore again then as I was today!

  4. Saturday 12/8/18 (now with race video!)

    PM SCY @ UALR "Trey Heye Memorial Invitational Day 2" or "The Meat Grinder"

    600 swim every 4th 25 scull w/ SNKL
    4x100 @ :20 rest k/sw/dr/bld I.M.O.
    4x75 @ 1:10 D1-4

    4x25 @ :35 rest V.S.
    2x50 (25 DIVE/25 EZ)
    100 EZ

    100 FR - 51.09 (24.70/26.39) - Spun my wheels and didn't nail my turns like I wanted to. Would have liked to have been under 51. But really can't complain.

    400 EZ (100 swim/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    100 BK - 1:02.47 (30.65/31.79) - My throwaway event. I never race backstroke so I figured, "why not?" Second 50 was much better than the first 50.

    600 EZ (100 swim/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    100 FL - 55.98 (26.30/29.68) - Best race of the afternoon. Was really happy with this time given all the racing I had already done prior. Locked up a little bit on the last 4-5 strokes, but really felt in control for the rest of the race.

    400 EZ (100 swim/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    200 I.M. - 2:06.81 (26.74/33.73/36.76/29.58) - By this point I was starting to run on fumes. Wasn't sure what to expect from this race. Happy with the time and effort for right now, but it definitely exposed the fact that I have not done any serious I.M. training!

    600 EZ (100 swim/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    50 FR - 23.53 (11.20/12.33) - Had to breathe twice to get through it. Doug actually recorded the race (unbeknownst to me at the time). When I can figure out how to get it off my phone I will post it. It was a whole lot of flailing propped up with a whole lot of kicking.

    Really wanted to push my body to the limit with this meet. High race volume and short turnaround. Today's session from the start of warm-up to the end of the meet was only 3 hours.

    PM SCY @ UALR "Trey Heye Memorial Invitational Day 1"

    400 swim every 4th 25 scull w/ SNKL
    300 pull w/ SP + SNKL
    200 kick every 3rd 25 BR w/ BD
    100 I.M. drill

    4x75 @ 1:20 k/dr/UW w/ fins
    3x50 @ :50 D1-3
    150 EZ

    200 FR - 1:55.30 (26.42/29.42/29.64/29.82) - I was a little hurried with my stroke and had trouble settling into the race. This has always been a problem for me, and the 200 doesn't provide a lot of time to "settle in." Probably why this is my least favorite freestyle distance to race.

    600 EZ (100 FR/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    500 FR - 5:11.98
    28.46/31.07 (59.53)
    31.58/31.70 (1:03.28)
    31.65/31.86 (1:03.51)
    31.74/31.99 (1:03.73)
    31.28/30.65 (1:01.93)


    This race was 25 minutes after my 200. I was stuck in third gear until the last 75 yards. Did not feel like I died though. I felt good throughout the race. The age groupers on either side of me shot off to fast starts. This was nice because it forced me to just swim my own race, and by the 200, I had reeled them in and passed them. By the 300, I was several body-lengths ahead of the field.

    600 EZ (100 FR/100 kick w/ BD) w/ SNKL

    Total: 3500

    SHOUT OUT: Trip, who did the same double as me. He got one extra heat of the 200 to rest since he was the heat before me. He was a VERY respectable 2:02/5:37 (the latter was a new Arkansas Masters record). Doug also simultaneously swam an amazing 50 FR and a terrible 200 FR. He was going for a 50 split (23.60). I am not sure he would want me to post his overall 200 FR time here, and honestly it took so long for him to finish I lost interest in the race and stopped paying attention

    Yes, yes I know I just completed a shave/taper meet yesterday, but spare me the lectures on taking a break. There is work to be done and only 145 days until I dive in to the 1650 at YMCA Nationals. Also the back half of this week may be a wash with the holidays. Also also Trip wasn't happy with his workout yesterday (the only change being that I wasn't there...go figure?), so he took a do-over.

    Really felt in control of the race from the horn. I definitely felt like I had more to give when I finished it. Really happy with the swim given it came on the last day of the meet. Overall happy with how the meet went. I think I am in a good place headed into the next training cycle. Next taper meet on the horizon is YMCA Masters Nationals, April 11-14, 2019. Hardest part of that meet is going to be determining my event line up :/

    600 EZ (200 swim w/ SNKL/200 FR kick w/ BD/200 swim w/ SNKL)

    Total: 2700
