Mixing it up this year

I really like my toys and will continue to use them. The mix will be both distance and sprints. My focus for this year is to maintain my 200 fly time.

  1. Recovery from meet

    I learned that NyQuil makes it hard to swim fast the next day. I have been taking it for about a week since my sinuses started acting up. My 500 Free on Saturday was pathetic barely broke 7 minutes with a 6:59 and my 200 back was a 3:00 swim. Granted I have stayed away from back due to my elbow causing problems but with the addition of shoulder issues last week fly was hard too.

    My 100 back was a 1:24 not good either but I was ok with it. Before the 400 IM I felt like I wanted to throw up, my heart rate was still high up over 100 and I was just telling myself get thru the fly... I did and it actually was not that bad a swim. I was expecting a 7 minute swim but went 6:24 and I actually had something left in the tank to split a 1:21 on the free.

    time to resolve all these shoulder issues with my Compex unit and a good deep tissue massage.

    Today was an easy day of sorts and everything still hurts.
