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!!!

    Since I missed the opportunity to swim LCM on Monday I choose to go as fast as I could through the strength portion of my typical back and arm workout, followed by a longer swim.


    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)

    swimming pool setup LCM
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on 1min
    3x200 kick with fins on 2:50
    6x200 free with snorkel on 2:50

    i really did not get going on the swimming portion today but the weights made me sweat pretty good.
