  1. 1|16|18 drylands/LP treadmill

    Back extensions - 1x15

    KB shrugs - 4x10x40#
    Lat pulldowns 10 reps of ea of 55, 65, 75, 85, and 95lbs with 5 seconds rest
    Scapular flexes with band - 5 x 3-5 seconds
    Scapular flexed external shoulder abductions with band - 8 ea
    Butt kickbacks - 1x16x70lbs
    Hand plank straight leg thigh to elbows - 1x4 ea leg
    Various hip range of movements - 1min
    Neck yes-sirs on a random machine - 1x20x40lbs
    Wheel pose for 0:10 and about 0:15 of mayurasana

    Had about 60% normal sleep last night so I purposely cut back on volume. Nevertheless, treadmill results compared to the last time I did this workout on 1|7, showed I progressively adapted, though I did fewer near maximal efforts.

  3. 1|12|18 LCM

    by , January 12th, 2018 at 06:21 PM (Blog)
    LCM 3k

    10 x 200 IM kick

    • 1st 50 was UWDK done in 12.5m increments, taking a breath between, and the 4th done as UW atlantis


    • 2nd just kick on back


    • 3rd frog kick with board and snorkel


    • 4th was flutter with board and snorkel

    Then put fins on and did 1000 of various drills, bursts, and fun things



    Shoulder bugs me without even doing anything. Hand numb and aches, etc. Many appointments and bs to go before anything gets done. Neck injections appointment was cancelled (likely because my ins company decided to change my ID# for 2018). The appt was the 15th and they waited to mssg me this 10 minutes prior to closing today. All they needed was my new ins #. So I left them plenty of messages. Shoulder doc was waiting for neck shots results before doing anything. Stuff gets on hold, but at least I was able to swim, and had fun doing so

    Had my first GI screening done on Wed - next appt in 10 yrs so that is good news.


    Did about 90 minutes of wine yoga last night. Can,t recall exactly was was accomplished

    These treadmill workouts are actually kind of fun, for the boring activity of running no where, sweating, and making cardiovascular noise.

    4 min 5.5 mph
    2 min 2 mph
    4 min 6.5 mph

    1:30 7.5 mph 9%
    2:00 2 mph 9%

    Treadmill Lactate sprints
    11 x 0:30 7mph@20% on 3:00
    • walk 2mph@10% during rest int
    • the last one was ~0:20 8mph@20%




    Weights
    leg press - 1x20x180
    • full reps - legs touch chest

    standing calf raises - worked up to 5x500

    incl DBBP - 1x20x40#
    lat mach - 1x20x90
    DB shoulder raises - 1x30x7.5#
    Back ext - 1x12
    leg pushdowns on chin assist mach 1x10x80 ea
    • hip fully abducted

    dips - 1x10



    Really miss the pool even though it consists of just kicking. The closest pool (scm pool that breaks down more than functions) has a water temp that of tap. There is still too much ice on the roads for me to travel 20 min for a swim. Treadmill sets also seem to be augmentative towards kick sets

    Weights (chest, back, shoulders) very light weight, 20 -30 reps, 2 - 3 sets per muscle group

  13. 12|12|17 mri result / LCM

    by , December 13th, 2017 at 11:19 AM (Blog)
    MRI of rt shoulder showed torn Labrum. Doctor also wanted imagery of neck at time to see if my shoulder atrophy and weakness was related to nerve issues but that one showed something else, degeneration. Md suggested a consult for shoulder, and shots for the neck. 70% relieved about shoulder diagnosis and 30% upset. Been whining about the related symptoms since 2013. My neck, thats been bugging me forever lol. Just glad Iím finally doing something about this and will hopefully have better function. Among other additional injuries, I will still need to have my other shoulder looked at, that is the one that used to dislocate in my 20ís and 30ís, it just doesn't have as much inflammation or lack of mobility as the right.

    LCM
    100 easy free warmup
    100 of drills
    100 of UW dolphin kicking (15m at a time)
    200 of UWDK with fins (25m at a time)
    400 of flutter kicking
    300 of br kicking

  14. 12|11|17 Dryland LT, plyo, calis

    by , December 11th, 2017 at 10:46 PM (Blog)
    No chance for a wet workout today (or yesterday, as well as Saturday and Friday) due to time and broken pool heaters. Was overdue lactate threshold work, accomplished this task on the treadmill, probably for the better (shoulder suffers directly proportional to ratio of work:rest in swimming.

    Treadmill
    2 min / 2mph
    4 min / 5.5 mph
    2 min / 2mph
    4 min / 6.5 mph
    2 min / 2mph
    4 min / 7.5 mph
    2 min / 2mph
    4 min / 8.5 mph
    2 min / 2mph
    2 min / 9.5 mph
    1 min / 2 mph

    Glute machine
    • 1 x 10 x 75 ea

    One leg box hops
    • Jump on 12" platform, then off to the fwd, then back on and off backwards
    • 10 ea

    Wheel pose
    • 10 x 0:10 on 1:00

    Mayurasana pose
    • 10 x 0:10 on 1:00

    Bag kicks
    • Rt side kick/heel kick combo and finish with a lt roundhouse
    • Do other side, repeat 5x


    I hope dryland LT work will transfer to the pool. I really enjoyed the treadmill workout and already have the short term goal to complete the 9.5 for 4 min and start a 10.5 effort. Would like to do this once a week as the net sum (~2.5 mi /wk)of all the running I will do.

    Had MRI done on right shoulder and neck. I sure do hope my insurance covers this one.

  18. 9|29|17 Entire outdoor pool to self (26 yards)

    by , September 29th, 2017 at 07:36 PM (Blog)
    WARMUP
    572 ez FR (11 laps)

    STROKE
    4 x 208 BR on 5:00 (worked walls, pullouts, and breathing)

    KICK
    1 x 26 flutter kick from block afap

    LP
    3 x 104 FR [(broken at 26 yds on 0:30, 2 breaths ea length) plus a 50 ez with TYR snorkel having blue restrictor on] on 4:00

    WARMDOWN
    150 FR with fins and snorkel, very slow, with fast rotation/roll


    A shavedown before a workout is a dandy way to boost ones confidence.

    The TYR blue restrictor hole is about the size of a pea. Have to zip-tie it on because it keeps popping off. Assume it restrictive breathing might provide some benefit.

    Again, various swimming with no structure in the workout. It was hot and the water close to 88.

    worked out with weights yesterday. trying to gain back my strength and weight (was 160, 164 now, should be 170+) as I have been super busy since last October. feel fatigued often but I push through it. Vacation planned soon (Aruba ) after I get back from a couple weeks in spain for work. If I still feel drained it will be time for a checkup
