    Power went out due to a storm last night around 8:45. Called in an outage to the power company, opened all the windows and went to bed. 2am, wake up to loud voices and flashlights in the backyard, where the power company people were working. The dogs weren't happy, and it made it a bit tough to sleep, but they finally got everything restored to the block at 4:45. Just in time for me to go to the gym.

  12. Don't Call it a Comeback + 9/10/17 Workout

    by , September 12th, 2017 at 12:30 PM (Swimming Through Jello)
    OK, I guess it is a comeback. I swam through college (Missouri S&T '11), took a ~6 year break from the pool during which I ran a half marathon, picked up CrossFit and weightlifting, not to mention 20 pounds of bodyweight!

    Recently, my finacee and I made a move to Crestwood, MO, and we happen to have a club with a Masters training group 5 minutes from our house. So, I decided to dip my foot back in. Registered for USMS, talked to the team and did my first official workout Monday. I signed up for a SCM meet 8 weeks out as a goalpost. I'll still be doing CrossFit 3-4 days a week, and I will swim 2 days a week for now.

    Onto Day 1 of logging:
    9/10/17 (8 weeks out from Ozark SCM Champs)

    100 Fr/100 Bk/200 K/200 P warmup

    4x50 K/Dr :60, 4x50 Dr/Bu :60 IMO

    5x100 Fr 1:30 (held ~1:08)

    4x50 K Board 1:05
    6x50 Pull :50

    100 Cooldown

    2100m

    //Tweaked my groin a bit breaststroke kick with the board. Will have to stretch that out and see how it feels. Not terrible for first day back, I suppose.
