  2. Woes of Aquasol 9/16/2010

    by , September 17th, 2010 at 03:53 PM (Swim like an Orca, but faster !)
    Aquasol
    -------------------------------------------
    Morning 5:40-6:10am
    Warm 200FR, 200K (fr/br), 200IM drill, 200P
    10x50 K w/ fins
    Water was very warm, I did not feel like doing something serious with hot water conditions.
    50 cool

    1350SCY
    ---------------------------------------------
    6:30-7:30PM
    (Practice was from 5:30-7:00pm)

    Evening
    Warm 50
    4x50 BR (25 drill/ 25swim)
    5x50 BK (25 drill/25 swim)
    5x100 P on 1:30 (1:15, 1:12best)
    10x50 Fly K on 1:00 (5 on side, 5 on back)
    8x50 Pace on 1:00 (did :39, then held :33 with a :34 here and there)
    100 cool
    ----------------------------------------------------
    This week was full of set-backs, On Monday the heater turned off over the weekend due to a power outage, and on Tuesday morning there wasn't a practice, then area High schools have started there water polo meets and kicked us out on Wednesday, anyways the Seniors and level 3 got to practice but the Masters were told to come in in the mornings.
    Since the water polo team from another high school uses our pool, and breaks lane lines, leaves a mess on the desk, their coach is a rotten egg etc... it squeezes the groups together, so our Masters ends up with 6 to 7 in a lane of all abilities. I usually sit out practice until the noodlers leave at 6:30pm and 3 lanes are free'd up, then most of the fitness/rec swimmers leave so it makes it easier to hit the intervals.
    Since things have been so messed up at Aquasol, Ive been thinking of going to mornings at Folsom. I won't get much coaching except to make sure I don't drown and there will be workouts on a board with a lot of fast swimmers to make me look even slower, but it just a thought. Its tough getting in a good workout regularly enough to increase my VO2 max and conditioning and strength. Seems if I miss a few days it can be detrimental to an already sucky ability.
    Ive got a meet in one week and I really needed to hit it hard this week, so I could have the week prior to the meet to do a slight taper. I found out later that Wednesday night, "the NO Masters allowed after the water polo meet night", that the pool was nearly empty.

  3. Friday, Sept. 17

    by , September 17th, 2010 at 03:47 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    No swim today. Had to see my chiro and ENT and get ready for Mr. Fort's birthday. Still need to pack for Savageman. We're leaving right after Lil Fort's 8:30 am soccer game.

    I hadn't been to my ART chiro for body work in several months. (Well, I didn't train that much in the summer, so I didn't feel the need.) He said my shoulders still felt very stable. We talked about my foot. I've had increasing pain in the first toe of my right foot over the years. It began with the MF incident, developed into tendonitis and I ignored it b/c I couldn't get a cortisone shot given my then meet schedule. As I understand it, cortisone is most effective if done immediately post injury. Now I get toe/foot pain when I run and jump (or wear high heels ). I'm having an MRI done next week. The suspected diagnosis is tenosynovitis/tendinopathy, aka degeneration of the tendons. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...cle/001242.htm. If that's what the MRI shows, I will need PRP, platelet rich plasma, therapy to fix it. http://www.treatingpain.com/diagnosi...ch-plasma.html. This is, as I have previously noted, a controversial therapy. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/he...0plasma&st=cse. But it seemed to work on my shoulder. And therefore I would definitely try it again. It should be much less costly and time consuming than a shoulder as well.

    I have succeeded in making a cake that looks (somewhat) like a Jamis bike. Now I am off to finish present wrapping and pack. I am feeling slightly more savage after a good night's sleep.

    Oh, I've discovered a couple new smoothie ingredients: beet greens and leek greens. They go well with cherries, red grapes, pineapple and berries. My allergist told me to stop using Amazing Meal b/c it has grass in it, and I'm allergic to grasses. Doh. I was unable to do a skin test for food allergies earlier this week (too much histamine in my system), but did submit blood for this purpose and for routine labs. Hopefully, it will rule out food allergies, as they are there so rare in adults. And, of course, Jimslie considers the entire topic pure quackery.

  4. 9/17 Practice

    by , September 17th, 2010 at 12:17 PM (Random Nonsense)
    Warm Up
    - 500 swim
    - 200 kick (2x dolphin back, left, back flutter, right)
    - 6x50 drill swim
    Transition
    - 4x150 back
    Main Set Group Send offs
    - 2x200 drafting drill, rotating lead every 50
    - 100 IM (bonus for the fast lanes)
    - 4x100 descend (1:12, 1:06, 1:01, :59)
    - 100 lane makes a single swimmer with equipment (leader gets paddles, middle gets buoy, rear gets fins), reshuffle at the 50
    Cool Down
    - 100 free

    The 100s were on about 1:50, so plenty of rest. I lead the 200s and there were only 3 people in my lane so during the drafting drill I held a steady pace on the first 50 and tried the lose the drafters on the last 50.

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

    Commentary:

    Just cruised through this workout today, but am still feeling surprisingly tired. I think it's because I sleep like a beached seal on coke.

    Any advice on workouts to do the couple days before an OW swim? Was wondering if maybe I should attempt another wetsuit swim tomorrow ...

    I glanced through my workouts from this time last September and it appears that I was indeed in better shape back then, as I suspected. I also found this race report: http://forums.usms.org/blog.php?u=46...gcategoryid=53.

    I was perusing Bicycle magazine today and found a blurb on a sample Lance Armstrong endurance and conditioning circuit. The exercises included:

    back extension & hold
    walk out plank & hold
    bulgarian split squat with weights
    (I've done this one, very tortuous, but have used DBs instead of an overhead weight.)
    one foot hamstring curls on stability ball
    med ball squat & push press
    med ball slam

    And, speaking of cycling, Lil Fort and I are in the process of making a bike cake for Mr. Fort's birthday tomorrow. It's a bit of a PITA; I hope it every so vaguely resembles his Jamis. I was mildly depressed by the fact that our combined birthdays total 100 years. lol


    Sprint Classic:

    If anyone is interested in attending the Sprint Classic at GMU (and, more importantly competing in "The Battle of the Drop Dead Sprinters"), the entry form is at:

    http://www.patriotmasters.org/GMUP.S...2010.Entry.pdf.

    Estimated timeline:

    http://www.patriotmasters.org/SPRINT...d.timeline.pdf

    I still haven't pulled the trigger on the Indy meet yet. My tentative plan is to swim very few events at the Sprint Classic and then go to Indy the next weekend. Mr. Fort has a two week trial in October, so he will be AWOL during the Sprint Classic. I try to swim something different there every year. The order of events is always the same, which is not exactly to my liking. I suggested to Tim T. that we have unofficial 100 relays one year along with the unofficial 25s.

  10. Adapting Medieval Technology to Modern Weight Loss

    by , September 16th, 2010 at 05:23 PM (Vlog the Inhaler, or The Occasional Video Blog Musings of Jim Thornton)
    Note: this vlog contains imagery of a purely scientific nature that may be found unsettling and/or actionable by gynecologists, holy men, and women. Please do not read any further if you A) suspect you may fall into one of these categories, or B) are a lawyer. Thanks.

    --the Edito
    r
    *
    Fellow travelers hoping, like me, to find an exit from their own false Imprisonment on Candy Land Island know that your narrator/favorite fatty began my diet nearly 30 hours ago.



    Using Step 2, Method A as outlined here http://forums.usms.org/blog.php?bt=45649 , I managed to lose 4 and 1/2 lb. from breakfast to dinner by eating only a light lunch and then going to swim practice, swimming 5250 lackluster yards, and spending some time in the steam bath.

    At the time, I was confident my need for dieting would soon be over.

    Alas, though somewhat less plump than when I first started this ordeal, I am nevertheless still hideous in my surfeit of flesh.

    As promised, I am now moving on to Step 3, Method B.

    And what is this, you are asking yourselves?


    _______________________


    The concept seemed vaguely familiar
    to me, this locking up
    of a troublesome orifice
    in search of pleasure.


    _______________________


    To explain the thought process leading up to my discovery--or perhaps rediscovery is a better word--of Step 3. Method B, let me briefly re-trace yesterday's food odyssey as such was lived out by me.


    • Breakfast: cereal and 9 cups of coffee.
    • Lunch: nothing.
    • Late afternoon snack: several wafer thin slices of country ham whose salt and protein content I hoped would help banish hypoglycemic bonking and cramps during my subsequent swim practice (it did!)
    • Pre-swim ingestion: One package of orange flavored GU Chomps.
    • I then swam 3800 more lackluster yards, took the ceremonial post-practice steam bath with my teammates, including a novelty-stimulus female or two, and did my official post-practice weigh-out: 180.9, the least fat-engorged I have been in weeks!
    • I scootered home and did not feel any desire to eat again, that is, until shortly after 9 p.m. I made two turkey and fresh tomato sandwiches, and though one might hope this would have proved more than enough, it merely opened the sluice gates to endless snacking foodstuffs placed by me in my gullet over the next two hours.


    Watching a repeat of True Blood's season finale, with all the au jus spilling everywhere, did not help matters.



    Bottom line here: After almost an entire day of pang-free abstemiousness, all was lost over a two-hour orgy of make-up eating.

    I waddled up to my bed and went to sleep, sort of, so fat was I that breathing was labored despite my CPAP machine blowing 8 cm of water's worth of air pressure into each nostril!

    I felt like Tony Soprano, one of those thickly mucosa-ed breathers who gasps for air sound like a beached grampus whale.





    This morning, I surveyed the damage and looked for solutions.

    It occurred to me that only two hours of an otherwise splendid day of carefree, easy dieting had ruined everything!

    For 22 hours a day, I live the life of a righteous, thin man.

    But for two hours, I become a food slut of the most slatternly type.

    Might I not figure out some way to take special precautions today to guard myself against a repeat of this for just the two hours of night-time, TV-watching, exceptional vulnerability when my inner glutton comes out to play?

    Perhaps I might create some kind of contraption that might temporarily lock up my orifice so that it could not get into trouble during a period when my Iron Will was temporarily unavailable to me?

    The concept seemed vaguely familiar, this locking up of a troublesome orifice in search of pleasure.

    Of course!



    This form of chastity belt, known as a bellifortis, (Latin for "Strong in War" or "War Fortifications") has been designed to keep lips unavailable for stuffing.



    Throughout much of the day, my own lips--thin to the point of cruelty--are hardly troublesome at all! They remain tightly pinched, offering no opening for the camel's nose of gluttony (nor its cameltoe, for that matter) to gain entrance to my gullet.




    A comely medieval frau is helped by Well Meaning Patriarchs into a necessary garment during her time of ovulation, an interlude during which her virtue is most likely to abandon ship and embrace sluttery.




    How I know first hand the maiden's temptation! How I wish for similar respite from my own temporarily insane abandonment of virtue! Could I, by some technological adaptation, tinker with the bellifortis to keep my paper-cut thin wanton lips from stuffing during the hours of 9 p,m. to 11 p.m.?



    For hours and hours, I roamed the Internet, searching for modern approaches to yesteryear's Chastity Belt solutions, ones that I might adapt to create my own dieter's Step 3, Plan B proprietary device. Finally I found the answer I had for so many feverish and throbbing hours sought! Release was at hand!

    With my brother John's help, I designed and manufactured a prototype, which I am hoping to put into mass production for sale at K-Mart in the very near future.

    I am negotiating with Martha Stewart even as we speak for some kind of It's a Good Thing licensing arrangement.

    In the meantime, I plan to test it out and get back to my fellow swimmers with notes on my flight back to Golden Boy status. Wish me luck!

    In less than 4.5 hours, the witching hours will be upon us once more, and I plan to use my new device to completely bar any invagination of foodstuffs and beverages alike into buccal cavity from from 9 to 11 p.m.



    Note: I am confident to the point of bursting that the Jim Thornton Chastity Head Belt & Pie Hole Blocker (TM) will do what we all know needs to be done.


    Can a letter from a certain committee in Stockholm be far in my future?

    Stay tuned.

    Just sitting down for the first time today. With a largish glass of New Zealand SB.

    Made it to Oak Marr this afternoon and did a modified Tall Paul workout. I'm quite ready to get back to some faster speed work next week and take out my toys. I'm renewing my resolve to conquer the dorkel. I am not taking on the tempo trainer.

    700 various

    Main Sets:

    8 x 50's @ 1:10

    Commentary:

    Feeling a little better in the water now with the muscular pain subsiding.

    The weather for Savageman this weekend is supposed to be amazing, though a bit chilly in the am. I see that I am going to be in a practically all male wave with the 25-29 year old men again. Not my fav; last year drafting seemed difficult as I felt caught in no mans land between the fast guys and the tri swimmers.

    SavageMan 70.0 Triathlon Waves:

    Wave 1: 8:30 AM (day-glo green): Pro, Elite, Clydesdale, Athena, Aquavelo, M55+, All Females
    Wave 2: 8:37 AM (silver): M25-29, M50-54, Relays
    Wave 3: 8:44 AM (red): M30-39
    Wave 4: 8:51 AM (blue): M40-49

    Need to search for the body glide ...
