After a long rest

I am a former swimmer, trying to get back into competitive swimming. I have been out of the pool 20 years and put on some extra pounds. This blog primarily documents my journey back to competitive swimming. And I should say having fun along the way!!!

  2. Budapest Week 5 - Monday

    Yesterday after practice my back started to tighten up and I was in some discomfort last night. I stretched before goi to bed and despite not being back to normal it was better this morning than last night. I was worried it would cause me some challenges today but I actually had a good workout.

Luckily my back actually loosened up on the warmup and I did not feel it until I climbed out of the pool at the end of workout.

    Off to Phoenix and swim with Patrick on Wednesday morning.

    Warm down
    200 easy

    I was joined by one of the girls from my senior group who is an IM swimmer and she was hauling butt on the first set with 200 IMs. I was coming in between 2:25-2:27. This was a really tough set. I felt much better on the free aerobic Set and was going 1:35s on the 1:50,1min on the 100 and :27-:28 on the 50s. The 50s at the end were just a beat down. I did not beat the guys on any of the 50s and held basically the same time as the previous 50 times.

    Saturday. Pool setup LCM

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on :55

    main sets

    this was low yardage but it hurt so bad. I was not even that fast today. I was 1:06s on the swims and 1:10 on the kick with fins. The 100 afap with fins I went :58. On the 50 afap I was a :28. I am swimming ok but just don't have a third or fourth gear yet.

    Sunday. Pool setup LCM

    warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on :55

    main set

    Warm down
    300 easy

    After feeling like I had no third or fourth gear yesterday i was determined to make this Set and I actually did really well today. I was really pushing the 400s and was 4:48,4:48,4:50 by round. The 300s I was a smudge slower going 3:37,3:38,3:40 by round. The 200 and the 100s were the toughest part of the set and I went 2:23,2:25,2:25 by round and 1:13,1:13,1:13 by round. I was really sore after all this pull but it made me feel good that I am nearly back to where was last summer on a pull set like this.

    I got back from Houston in time to coach my senior group, but was very tired. I slept really well last night but was still tired when I woke this morning. My daughter swam at 5:15 so I was Dad. It's always fun having one in one time with her but like me she was not chatty this morning. I did not really get going this morning and just lifted.

    I did not get home from the pool until after 8pm yesterday which made for a very long day. My group didn't swim so hot. We had a few best times but mostly adds. We have been working pretty hard in practice and did not rest at all for this meet so no real surprise.

    I woke up feeling like I needed a few more hours of sleep. I decided to hit the stationary bike hard to get my heart rate up and this helped to wake me up.

    Weights
    10 minutes on stationary bike.
    3x(elbow exercises and shoulder exercises, wrist flexor, dumbbell pronation and supination with 17.5lbs, elbow flexion and extension with 27.5lbs, weighted External rotation with arm abducted using 12.5lb dumbells)

    The group I am coaching is swimming the Texas Senior Curcuit meet this weekend and I ate later than usual last night as a result; I was afraid this would give me indigestion but luckily it did not. I went to bed normal time and slept awesome. This morning I woke feel achy and stuff but after warmup managed to loosen up. The being sore seems to be a constant theme right now.

    Pool Setup LCM
    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch up on 1min

    main sets
    300 kick trying to go under 3:30
    4x(3x100 free starting at 1:30 descending 5 seconds per round trying to hold 1:15 or better, 3x50 stroke choice fast on 1min)
    200 easy
    8x50 with fins on 1min as 25 under water, 25 back with first 8 strokes afap tempo

    warm down
    200 easy

    i went 3:25 on the kick. On the aerobic 100s/50 fast set I tried like yesterday relaxing and it really helped. I held 1:14/1:15s throughout. The 1:15 round was tough but not as bad as I assumed it would be and I was 1:13s on this round. The 50s I mixed up back(37s) and free(33s). The hard part about this set was the fact that there was no recovery. I am making steady progress!

    Yesterday my daughter had her end of year 7th grade ceremony which was fun to attend. I did not remember from my sons time in 7th grade how many different awards they hand out at these events. In elementary school it was A and A/B honor roll whereas this was at least 10 different potential awards. Despite it taking forever it was fun.

    Last night my daughter also played in the honors band spring concert at the high school. My son did not want to go but my wife and I went to support. Not my thing but it was great to see and hear my daughter play her Oboe.

    I had had a solid night of sleep last night but again was quite tired when the alarm went off. Playing catchup on sleep is tough. I actually felt pretty decent in the water today. Normally Wednesday is 200 race pace day but today was long aerobic work. At first this sounded horrible but by the end of the main sets I felt good. Maybe this was what I needed; a long swim.

    Pool setup scy

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on :50

    on the 800s I was 9:05,8:55,8:33. I felt good on the last one in particular. On the kick I was coming in on :45s. Nothing special on the 25s but I felt good.

    I had an awesome weekend fishing in east Texas but as is always the case when I go fishing in east Texas it makes for a long weekend. We fished both Saturday and Sunday from 4am to midnight. We caught a lot of big bass and enough crappie for a very large dinner on Saturday. It is so pretty in east Texas with the big lines and the lake I was fishing is so pretty. If only I had an odd $8-10millikn laying around in my checking account I could make it permanent.

    My my daughter was not feeling so great yesterday and I used it as an excuse to try to catch up on my sleep.

    Today i I felt like I had been out of the water to a few days. Today was tough.



    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :50

    Main sets
    10x(100 kick on 1:40, 50 back at 200 pace on :40)

    16x25 underwater on :30

    Warm down
    400 free breathing 3,5,7,9 by 25

    i was told to hold 1:25s on the kick and :30s on the 50s back. I was more like 1:27s on the kick and :31s on the back. The 200s I cruised the free but felt awful on the back. I was holding 2:10 on the free and 2:20 on the back. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

    I had a great night of sleep but was still pretty tired this morning. Despite this I had a good workout today.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :50

    Main sets
    10x100 free on 1:10
    100 easy

    Warm down
    200 easy

    I swam next to two of the kids in my daughters training group(13-14 year olds), one boy and one girl. This was a hard workout. I held my own but these kids are going to be a really special group from Rockwall. There around 10 kids who are on the path to D1 swimming and I believe several who have the potential do be really special. I held 1:03-1:04s throughout the aerobic 100s and actually felt pretty good. The fly,back, free Set was plain hard. My fly is 1 arm these days and I am trying to avoid hurting both my elbow and shoulder. I was coming in on :35s on the fly, :33s on the back and :31s in the free. The kick was pretty easy until the 5 on :45 where I held :41s. The underwater was awful. I can do almost unlimited on :40 but the interval goes below that and eventually I start to hurt. I was hurting after 4 today but made them.

    Now I am off to east Texas for a couple days with my son. Can't wait to hang out and see the beautiful big pine trees and wild life.

    My crazy travel day yesterday ended around midnight and this morning started early since my daughter had morning workout this morning. Despite being really tired I hauled myself out of bed this morning, so I could both workout but more importantly spend time between the house and the pool and the pool and the house with my daughter(these times are often so insightful and I have a really cool kiddo).

    My workout was pretty pathetic today but I worked out. I was down on the weight on several exercises.

    Weights/Dryland
    10 minutes on stationary bike on highest setting trying to get my heart rate above 130.
    3 x(20x15 lbs doing forearm pronation and supination strengthening, 10 right arm and 10 left arm shoulder rotations using 12.5lbs , 10 right arm and 10 left arm elbow flexion and extension using 27.5lbs)
    3x(10xlat pull down to chest using 140lbs, 10xtricep rope pulldowns using 42.5 lbs, 10xstanding straight arm pull down using 80lbs)
    3x(10 triceps extension using 60lbs, 10 right arm and 10 left arm dumbbell rows using 50lbs, 10 left arm and 10 right arm lying dumbell triceps extensions using 25lbs)
    20minutes of stretching

    After spending so much time on the plane recently my back has been pretty tight so I spent extra time today stretching and this helped enormously.

    I am in East Texas this weekend fishing with my son and I am really looking forward to it!

    Work took me to Seattle today. Kirk Nelson arranged for me to swim with him(thanks buddy) this morning. I was quite tired before, during and after today's workout but it was great to swim and briefly catch-up with Kirk. I swam at Iowa while Kirk swam at Michigan State in the late 80s and early 90s and we know a few people on each other teams. Today's workout was great but was definitely more on the straight swimming side than I am used to.

    My whirlwind travel day finishes about midnight tonight when I get back to Dallas. These one day trips are pretty tough but they do minimize the amount of time I have to be away from the kids and DeAnna.

    Pool setup scy

    800 with :45 rest
    300 at threshold pace +1 with, :45 rest
    700 aerobic :45 rest
    300 at threshold pace -1 with, :45 rest
    700 aerobic :45 rest
    300 at threshold pace -3 with, :45 rest
    4x175 back from 70% with :20 at each 25
    5x(5x25 free holding under :15s on :45,:45,:30,:45,:15)
    200 easy

    i was not really on pace today but descended the 300s going(about) 3:24,3:20,3:15. The analog clock and the diving board made it a little tough to see. Despite being relatively slow today in a strange way it felt good to just swim. We don't do any long straight swimming sets so this was a nice change. On the 175s as 25s back I descended from :17s to :15s. On the 25s free I started to feel pretty tired but held :14s throughout.

    A big thanks goes out to Kirk for arranging the opportunity to swim with his USAS team. I hope we are both injury free and in racing shape next spring; I hope to see you in Indy. We will be the old guys in the age group again.

    I had a really good night of sleep and was still feeling a little tired this morning. I love it when you go to sleep in one position and wake up in the exact same position; this morning was such a morning.

    I felt much much better in the water today and despite the nagging pinch in my left shoulder it was no where near as bad today.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on :50

    main sets
    8x75 kick on 1:10
    2x(3x300 free on 3:40 descend 1-3, 2x100 kick as active recovery on 1:45, 2x50 fast back on :40)
    100 easy
    8x75 as 50 Back, 25 no breath free on 1:10
    8x50 breast(why?) working on timing of kick and shooting on 1min
    10x50 with snorkel on :35

    warm down
    200 ez

    i did really well on the 300s going 3:17,3:14,3:10 on round 1 and 3:15,3:10,3:05 on the second round. The kick I was holding 1:27s and the back I was :31/:32s. One of my training partners is a breastroker and she has struggled with timing of the kick and shoot so we did a few 50s working on this. I hated this part! On the 50s on :35 I cruised and was holding :32s throughout. I felt good in the water today. Now I need to string a few of these together.

    I am off to Seattle tonight for another whirlwind 24hrs.

    This morning should have been real course but for some reason the life guards did not flip the pool so we swam scy.

    i felt pretty stiff stiff from weights yesterday but had a decent workout. my daughters workout group were next to me and I am so glad I decided not to join them. They did 3xT20s trying to increase effort 1-3. She went just shy of 1900 on the last T20. OMG she has improved so much in such a short time.

    My workout was not not easy but I decided to do a different aerobic set.

    Warm up

    200 easy
    16x25 back on :30 holding 200 pace

    warm down
    300 easy

    The kick I was coming in on 1:05-1:07s. I held 1:05 pace throughout the aerobic set despite discomfort in my left shoulder. The 25s I was off on my pace and held :16s. I was pretty tired after this workout.

    My daughter and I had a great discussion about her season goals on the drive home. I cherish these kinds of discussions.

  19. Budapest Week 1 - Saturday

    by , May 6th, 2017 at 04:06 PM (After a long rest)
    There was a meet at our pool this weekend so I swam very early with the group going to Budapest. I felt pretty decent in the water today.

    Pool setup LCM

    Warm up
    400 Free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on 1min

    main sets
    6x100 kick with fins on 1:30
    50 free easy on :50, 1x50 back at 200 Pace on 1min
    100 free easy on 1:40, 2x50 back at 200 Pace on 1min
    150 free easy on 2:30, 3x50 back at 200 Pace on 1min
    200 free easy on 3:20, 4x50 back at 200 Pace on 1min
    100 easy
    8x50 drill/build on 1min

    warm down
    200 easy

    i held 1:10-1:12 on the kicks with fins and then :34-:36 on the 50s back. My back felt good today. Ideally I would like to be more consistent and hold :34s but this is the first time I have tried going at pace on my backstroke. This set was harder than it sounds and is another one I will do again.

  20. Budapest Week 1 - Friday

    by , May 5th, 2017 at 10:09 AM (After a long rest)
    I went to bed at 7:30pm last night and slept solidly till midnight when I had to get up and use the bathroom. I was worried I would have trouble going back to sleep but as it turned out I think I fell asleep before my head even hit the pillow and slept solidly again until my alarm went off for practice.

    Today was not as as hard as thought Tom planned on making practice. On one hand it was good but on the other I was kind of looki forward to the set he described on wednesday(100,125,150,175,200 all on 2mins). His modified version was fine but no where near as challenging. My training partner, Bill, was back in town visiting from Indiana today which on its own made for a great time. I did enjoy practice today and it was fun.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on :50

    16x25 on :30 odds choice drill, evens no breath free
    15 minutes of Tom time - vertical kick followed by Tom calling out what to do for a 25(fly, no breath free, corkscrew, etc)

    warm down
    200 easy

    just like yesterday I took a while to get going today. The kick I was feeling good and held :41s throughout. On the 100s I was holding 1:03s, the 1:25 I was 1:19, the 1:50 I was 1:33, 175 I was 1:50 and the 200 I was 1:59. I was not going super hard on these Andy instead focused on trying to keep my stroke long. My shoulder is still uncomfortable and I have avoided pushing too hard. The only one I pushed was the 200 and even it my splits were very consistent. Tome said I was :59/1min. He also said my turns and kick were both noticeably slower on the second 100 but he said my stroke looked longer. The Tom time was fun since we got a chance to laugh and joke as we were vertical kicking. All good today.
