  10. Oh the back pain

    by , November 27th, 2012 at 08:01 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I need a massage BADLY! I guess I will have to call and schedule myself for a good deep tissue massage.

    I think my weight lifting leg routine might be agrevating my lower back. I'll get over it.

    500 choice

    3 x (3 x 50)
    1 = 25 scull + 25 torque drill @ 1:15
    2 = 50 tempo kick @ 1:30
    3 = 50 swim, descend to 200 pace @ 1:00
    50 EZ

    Main Sets:

    3 x (4 x 25 variables) @ :30
    -- 1 free, 1 fly, 1 kick
    1 = easy-fast
    2 = fast-easy
    3 = fast
    4 = easy
    50 EZ

    10 x 25 shooters @:45
    odds = fast @ 100 pace
    evens = EZ
    100 EZ

    200 kick my back really locked up on me so much that I changed the workout to adapt

  17. this one should have been long course

    by , November 15th, 2012 at 07:39 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I have my own lane on Tuesday and Thursday so I was wanting to use the Monofin today. I don't like using it when I have to share... I could hurt someone with it.

    The left shoulder has been giving me some issues so I decided not to do my weightlifting last night. I will try tonight if it feels ok. I think I just have a lot of muscle cramping going on. My left shoulder and right quad are both cramping at the same time then they both subside for a while.

    Oh well...

  18. Just one kick can....

    by , November 14th, 2012 at 07:57 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    It is amazing how one kick can hurt so bad and the same movement can eventually loosen you up. This happened to me this morning.

    During the main set I was getting started with my 50 free and dolphin kicked off the wall...then OH the Pain. My 50 free became 50 1 arm fly drill pushing thru the pain to get loose. I was going to kick free but decided I needed dolphin kick more at that point. I actually did an extra 50 kick just to loosen up more.
