    Okee doke, already wrote my blog and it did it go through🙃
    I can't wait till next week! I get my new phase w/o, not really so much a fan of the power phase. Plus with my trainer and coach both gone for the holidays all this gets kinda lonely, not hearing any input, or my coach telling " one more one more". I do see and feel myself getting better and stronger, just want to hear it from my superiors!!😆😅

  11. 2x workout not so sure, for me

    The past 2 weeks I had been doing both my dry land and swim workouts the same day, sometimes doubling my swims.
    im finding my muscles (not so much joints) are tighter and achier. I hydrate and fuel enough I believe, perhaps it's my position on certain strokes and or kicks in the pool, or could be my body adapting to the new weights of the power phase I'm currently doing with Rittersp. Anywho, I lightened up on my workout, alternating them and feeling better. I've always been hard on my self as some of us are our own worst critics😬😆😇

    My swim coach is out of town for the holidays, I really feel I need a change of pase, this workout is becoming effortless unless I shorten the times, but then again I feel the technique may begin to weaken.

    I can't thank my my personal trainer Chris Ritter enough for all my progress. His excellent guidance has made me become a stronger swimmer!
    And my personal coach Corrie UH COOG's for helping me with percition, giving me great direction and confidence to face up coming competitions!!
  18. Outdoor pools finaly open

    Its been months since last post,
    nevertheless still going strong with Chris Ritter strength training. DL's like 165#, back sqts 95# and over head press55# amongst other crazy looking faces exercise with strenuous pushes and pulls. What a difference in my swimming the w/o's have made. In the mid of my swim workouts at about after 2000m (variety sets) its as if my body is a speed boat on top the water!! amazing.. I'm sure its all in my head!! and for me that's ok.. I just love to swim!!

    Here in Houston the weather is great and the outdoor pools (not all) have finally opened up!! Totally could use some sun!!

    I've been teaching adults to swim (I'm ALTS Inst.) and am loving every moment of it. Feels great to help people achieve their goals learning to swim and feeling more confident in the pool!!
  19. Ouch!! my back..

    While still trying to strength train and swim, my back is somewhat kinda letting up.. Last week I had helped my brother move into his new home and I had felt just fine afterward. Well, so I thought. Monday August 31st I woke up feeling a little sore and started my day as usual, dog walkies, work, and in the evening went to do my dryland w/o. It was then when I realized as I was picking up the 145#bar for deadlift that I had pulled something in my mid upper back. My masseuse says its the Latissimus Dorsi muscle. I continued my strength with slight pain, stepped into the Jacuzzi for a short while and went for my massage. Tuesday took it easy. Wednesday had my dryland strength and sent the video to Chris (my trainer) and he also told me to take some time off. I can't.. but I am working around that part of my back. I feel I am almost at the top of my game and don't want to loose progress.. I will dryland today with the exception of certain exercises Chris told me I could do and not do the exercises that would aggravate that part of my back .. I feel ok today, and will w/o with caution..

  20. Speed set w/o dryland

    Wish I had more time post.. I enjoy exploring through the usms site, I feel more connected to what I love to do the most in life. I've been researching looking for a person swim coach that can get me in gear to compete spring season 2016. My coach referred me to a one on one coach but, only offers 2 sessions a month ($300) with 4 additional individual w/o.. may as well just stay with the large group I currently swim with.. my work schedule is what keeps me from meeting with my coach and his w/o sessions.. I'll figure something out!!
    On the other hand my strength training is going well. And I can most definitely feel the power of my strength in the pool, just wish I knew how to utilize every ounce of energy and strength simultaneously..
