  4. Hit the wall

    For the first time ever I will completely concede that I'm probably over training. Today I had to leave work early, tried to work from home, ended up passed out for 4 hours. I still want to go to sleep again, but I know if I do I won't sleep at all tonight. I'm also frustrated - I constantly feel the need to go go go but this pool has been the great equalizer in my body. Times when I used to run on fumes for days now I just crash and shut down. I guess I liked doing that - it always gave a sense of "epic" in my head.

    So I have a pretty regular schedule for my body:

    5 AM Wake up, hit alarm.
    5:15 AM - Actually get up.
    --Sometime between now and 6, I make my 8 egg whites with veggies and my lunch for the day. I usually shower (if I didn't the night before)
    6:30-7 AM Get to my desk job where I climb ten flights of stairs (roughly 120 stairs) to my desk.
    8:30 Eat my protein shake
    10:30 Eat some yogurt
    11:30-12 Lunch!
    2 PM - eat my home made protein bar!
    3:00 PM Leave my job.
    4 PM Start my Lifting circuits at the gym. (3 circuits of 3-4 exercises (core always included) performed 3 times for each circuit)
    5 PM Go home and chill. Do something like laundry, work on my personal computer stuff, mow the lawn, etc...
    ---(T/Th) 7:45 PM go to the pool, swim my rear off for my coach.---
    10 PM get home, try to bring my body down as much as possible.
    11-11:30 PM Bed.

    On Mondays and Wednesdays, I'm usually pretty cool, I can go to bed early (like 9 PM). Life is good. Wednesdays USED to be the same way, except this Wednesday I had two consulting gigs back to back that lasted until 10 PM (then grocery shopping). So come today (Friday) I get to work just exhausted, burnt out, etc... and I just can't stay awake at my desk.

    So what do people do when they're in these situations? My swim practice is late (which ironically was one of the reasons I wanted to go to this masters club...) but I get home from practice and my body is just roaring with adrenaline and I usually don't sleep worth anything those nights.

    Some good news: I'm down to around 220 pounds. I haven't been this light since high school! Age 25 and in the best shape of my life! :-D

    And if anyone ever reads this, I'd like to say: Thank you to the masters community. This community has made me feel more at home than any other community I've been in in a long time. Growing up I was always taught to say thank you to those who helped you. I will say everyone here has :-)

  9. IM Wednesday

    by , June 2nd, 2010 at 11:37 AM (Adventures in Swimming)
    Swam with Columbus Sharks
    Only a few days left with coach Renee.
    Then I have to coach all workouts till we
    find another coach to split duties. For some
    reason there are not a lot of people wanting
    to coach at 5:45 am :-(

    200 Swim
    100 Kick
    200 Swim (I think)

    Set 1
    Anything ending in 5 is kick, the rest are drill
    10-15 r on everything

    25 Under Water, 25 ez

    Warm Down

    I felt like a LOG today.
    I didn't eat very healthy the last couple of days. It's amazing how much diet effects my
    swimming. Hamburgers, hotdogs, Cake and Ice cream are not good energy food. But I had
    to eat what was leftover from the party with my kids on monday. No sense in wasting food
    and beer :-)

  14. Mini Swim + Yoga, May 28

    by , May 28th, 2010 at 04:51 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    Dragged myself to the pool today for no other reason than to try a new suit. I might feel the need to evangelize (or not) about the kneeskins soon.

    700 various

    10-15 minutes in the locker room putting on kneeskin suit. Not sure, might have had the wrong size.

    200 w/suit


    Hot Yoga, 90 minutes:

    This felt pretty sweet overall. But the instructor was super chatty and annoyed me. He also caused class to run 20 minutes late. I chuckled when he said that some clients have objected to the new flooring as unauthentic. I vastly prefer it.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Commentary:

    I felt absolutely appalling in the water today. No residual taper buzz left at all. And I still feel rather appalling in general, like I have a case of mono. This situation was worsened by being woken up an hour early today by Lil Fort. I need some big time quality sleep this weekend to jolt myself out of this post Atlanta malaise. Yoga doesn't seem to be working. I probably should have booked a post meet massage, which I did after Zones and snapped back faster.

    Dinner tonight with friends and then some rounds of barbecues this weekend. No pool till next week.

    did not swim monday, I travelled back from GA to TX

    ElaineK "Elaine-iaK" was kind enough to video my 200 IM at Nats & here is the footage.
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECihgAWZiy4"]YouTube- 2010 Masters SCY Nats 200 IM Men 45 to 49 1:58.20 NR[/nomedia]

    I'm thrilled that I stuck with my plan & it worked. I should have made a better plan for my 100 IM, I just went hard, died & got 3rd.

    I'm kinda in training limbo right now.
    We might do a time trial this Friday but I want to get going on the 2010 LCM season

    WEIGHT 228 after practice
    I am going the wrong way with my weight and I need to turn the beat around.
    Had my home birthday dinner last night & totally pigged out.
    I really need to get my weight down under 210,
    especially since the rubber swim girdles are just about GONE

    Sat May 22nd 2010
    NATS day 2

    200 IM
    went 1:58.20
    split it 26.1 30.3 33.6 28.16
    got 1st
    broke NR
    exciting race with Stevenson & Tuchler
    Swam in lane 5 beside Tuchler
    Stevenson was in 6
    Baker was supposed to be in 4 but opted to scratch
    chris was 24.6 53.8
    glad I didn't see chris till the breast, i might have thought, he's too far I'll never catch him

    tuchler was 0.8 ahead of me at the 150
    I turned & turned on my legs, think I caught him at the 175

    50 bk
    went 24.78 2nd
    which is my best time this season, but I hoped to go faster
    chris went 24.28

    4 x 50 fr relay
    with Jon, Max & Nate
    terrible split, 22.9
    totally blew my turn
    this pool has a water quality issue where bubbles linger, with all the big bodies diving in, swimming fast, churning up the water, visibility was super low, I didn't see the wall until it was too close, jammed it worse than I've ever jammed a turn, lost all momentum, had a terrible deep weak push off

    had a super nice dinner that Chris Weissman set up at fox sports bar & grill
    very nice, saw many friends
