    scy is a pain but I can flip turn with the chute; you just have to be much closer to the wall than you think inorder to make it work. Tuesday is scy while Thursday is LCM, so I only have to deal with it on Tuesday.

    I really like the power tower but it is very hard on the shoulders, and I felt yesterdays workout throughout todays workout and I am not even using super heavy weights.

    I am going to swim but will try to be as casual as possible around my daughter. Indy has some options so I will make it work. We also have several chaperones and she has friends in our senior group who she can hang out with while I swim. I will make it work!

    I was doing so well for the longest period where I wrote the workout down right after practice, but recently I have calls almost immediately after practice and remembering my workout gets tougher and tougher. I guess if there is a silver lining the fact that I am swimming and swimming pretty well is it!

    I have been doing more and more of this type of set instead of a straight 16x50 set which I did forever. If you go one more round its 15x50's so its as tough but somehow the active recovery makes it more mentally tolerable.
