    These past couple days workouts were pretty disappointing and made me feel like I'm all the way back at square one again. I'm pretty sure most of it is still being sore from Murph Monday, but it still was not fun to be as slow as I have been.

    Long weekend trip to Mammoth Cave and Red River Gorge in Kentucky.

    Saturday went on a couple of cave tours and hikes. Total 10+ miles, 80 some flights of stairs equivalent.

    Sunday drove to Red Rive Gorge - hiked 10+ miles, a couple of decently big climbs (apparently we totaled more climbing than when we tried to hike up Flattop Mountain in Colorado).

    Monday drove back and didn't really do anything active, which was OK with me.

    Saturday, 5/11/2019 Pool Workout

    Felt hoooorible in the water! I think my legs were not happy after softball Thursday, hadn't done any cutting/acceleration type movement since I got sick. So I had some intermittent foot and calf cramps and my hip flexors were/are really sore so my breaststroke kick was fairly nonexistant!

    4x200 :30 rest
    1 - fr
    2 - r/l arm x50 choice
    3 - SKiDS fr/br
    4 - IM

    I did it as (if I remember right)

    16x25 VS :30 - 4 fl/4 fr/4 k/fins on front, 4 k/fins on back

    200 warmdown

    4200y

    Then I had a snack and stretched out, spent next 2 hours doing start/turn demos for club team mini clinic. Which was more taxing than I expected!

    Tuesday, 5/7/2019 CrossFit PM Workout

    Warmup - stretching, plyos, running, PVC warmup

    Strength - A) Split Jerk - 95/2, 135/2, 165/2, 185/2, 205/2
    //A little rickety, but better than I expected for this point in the comeback.

    B) Bent-over Row - 115/8,8,16

    Conditioning - 3 rounds
    15 hand release pushups
    9 pullups (butterfly)
    200m run

    //Super ran out of gas by the end. Lungs have a lot of catching up to do.

    Wednesday, 5/8/2019 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - plyos, KB warmup

    Strength - Deadlift - 135/5, 185/3, 225/2, 275/2, 295/2, 320/2
    //Went up really, really slow, but it went up. So I'm not quite back at square one, but not too far off. My first CF workout (and first time deadlifting) 7 years ago I maxed out at 285 for a single.

    Conditioning - EMOM 12
    1 - 15 KB goblet squats 53#
    2 - 12 cal assault bike
    3 - 6 DB push press per arm 40#
    //Scaled down from the prescribed weights but still almost died.

    I figured some goals I have for next winter/spring season. Partly extra motivation on the comeback trail here, partly to guide my training over the next year. I don't know why I'm doing this to myself but I'd like to get some of my middle distance chops back. So, in that vein, my goals for next year (hopefully Spring Masters Nationals?) are sub-2:00 200 fly and sub-2:10 200 breast. Two more barriers I never really had a chance to break in college. We'll see how it goes.

  17. 5/5/-5/6/19 workouts

    by , May 6th, 2019 at 02:03 PM (Swimming Through Jello)
    Friday/Saturday trip to Indy for a wedding, Sunday drove back in the morning with enough time to get all the prep work for the week done + lawn mowing + a workout.

    Sunday 5/5/2019, Garage Weights

    Superset:
    Deadlift - 135/5, 185/5, 225/5, 245/5, 255/5, 265/5
    DB A/Y/Ts - 5s/10x5 each movement
    DB bicep curl - 25s/8x5

    Took video of last set of deadlifts: 1) I am still super scrawny and look super-uncoordinated with the barbell, so lots of work to do there still, and 2) My male pattern baldness, pretty much undetectable a year ago, has *really* accelerated... almost a lost cause at this point!


    Monday, 5/6/2019 Pool Workout
