  6. 10/29/18 Workout

    by , October 29th, 2018 at 09:36 AM (Swimming Through Jello)
    Another weekend of no workouts. Probably why it took me 90% of the practice to get into the swing of things. Groin feels tweaky too, from Thursday breaststroke I guess plus squats and thrusters and rowing Friday, I guess. Hopefully that clears up before meet this weekend, will e-stim it the next couple days.

    Put my crappy racing suit on today. Was not fast, the little things (starts/turns) felt sloppy besides my fly UW and breakout on the IM was perfect. Breaststroke just spinning my wheels. Legs still dead definitely. Looking forward to some mini-taper.

    SHOUT OUT: Trip's poor excuse for trash talk. Stay focused on what is going between YOUR two lane ropes, bro.

    **TOFU - ďThree Over Fourth Under,Ē this was an underwater hockey training set my UW-H team used to do. The full set was 10x100 on a descending interval, 75 swim/25 UW kick. I donít remember the send offs anymore, but I know that the last 1-2 were on 1:00/:58 or something speedy like that. At the time it was a benchmark for making the junior/senior national squad. I tried out my junior year for the Jr. Nats team. I was the only one to complete the set. However my poor puck handling skills at the time kept me off the team. To use a football analogy, I basically had the fastest 40, the most bench press, and the highest vertical, but I couldnít run clean routes and catch a football. I had tried out at an early point in my UW-H playing career, and within 6 months of the tryouts, I had some of the best puck skills on my club team...just a day late and s dollar short at tryouts. Too bad too. The Jr. Nats team went on to win gold in Calgary that year :/

    Good swim this morning with Greg, Noah, Dedrick, Jim, Rebecca, Mary, and Kevin.

    Looks like Greg and Noah are up for swimming at the New England SCM champs in December. I will likely go for Saturday. I am trying to recruit one other swimmer so that we can field a couple of relays. Greg has been the only other swimmer to compete regionally with me...always more exciting to spend all day at the pool with my swim buddies.

    Here is a picture of the Mrs. and me at the pumpkin patch:
