    1000 25 ez fr 25 dr
    500 bk board fins
    300 uw board fins

    The drill I used was a Tony Ervin demonstration on youtube. All it is is freestyle with UW recovery, what makes it important is maintaining rotation, breathing, and stroke with the extra drag. Helps one maintain hold of water without slippage.

    Left shoulder felt little loose and aching from weights yesterday, so I got out

    Legs and back still sore from 1.5 mi run 3 days ago



    1|13
    Weights/drylands all parts except calves

    Sore from saturday’s 1.5 mi run



    1|11
    Did annual AF fit test
    50 push-ups in 1 min
    50 crunches in 1 min
    1.5 mi in 12:12 (2017 did 10:32 with run training)
    score: 98

    Very painful running hard without any running over 12 months except occasional 50 second treadmill warmups. If my hips didn’t bother me I would actually train for it.

    I started out way too fast - one of the runners goes all out from the start. I had no sense of pace due to zero running outside of 50 sec treadmill warmups. I understood this person was going much faster than a normal 1.5 mi pace but I did not want to fall to far off, so I convinced myself I was going at a moderate pace. After about 1 minute this pace rabbit just suddenly starts walking! Reality hits me and I was borderline about to collapse as my body started to slow down. The remaining 11 minutes had to be one of my top 3 most painful runs.

    Easy pace distance free, 2100m in 38 min. Swam 2-beat out and 6-beat back. Used snorkel.

    Swimming very aerobically lately. Saving my legs up for approaching weekend’s annual fitness test - 1.5 mile run is part of it. Probably ran less than 10 cumulative miles over entire year in preparation for it.

    2019 swimming related memory flash. Two meets after 2.5 years off due to injury-surgery. Spent some time swimming in nature: couple weeks in Aruba, a couple in Hawaii, a few more local places, lakes, waterfall ponds, and once in a very cold Edisto river. About 90% of OW swimming was done with fins.

    Attaching images isn’t as easy as it used to be.

    Below: Aruba, Hanauama bay HI, Kahe point HI, and Edisto river in 57°F water (swimming < 2 minutes)

  19. 12|27|19 novice cold water plunge

    by , December 27th, 2019 at 11:29 PM (Blog)
    Went for a brief 55°F water swim in the Edisto river taking advantage of abnormally low water temperatures. The air was close to 70. I actually did two swims, but no longer than 1 min for each time ha ha. Anything under 82°F feels cold to me, but this wasn’t a cold sensation, it was a little more like pain.


    Drylands

    Superset of 4x:
    • 0:55 airbike (~15 cal)
    • ~0:45 curve (0.1 mi)
    • 10 rep 50 lbs DBBP
    • 0:50 static crunch at 45°


    2 x 10 x 120 lbs 12” step-ups

    Superset 3x:
    • 20 x 115 lbs leg press each
    • 10 x ??? lbs cable pull downs
    • 10 x 50 lbs BB curls

    • 50 kick / 50 smooth without fins
