    Today was my back day in the weight room and like previous back days I had the wobbles and shakes at the end of the workout. It's amazing how you can go from stiff and sore, to loose and wobbly and then back to stiff and sore within a 60minute workout.

    10 minutes on stationary bike on highest setting trying to get my heart rate above 130.
    3 x(20x17.5 lbs doing forearm pronation and supination strengthening, 10 right arm and 10 left arm shoulder rotations using 10lbs , 10 right arm and 10 left arm elbow flexion and extension using 27.5lbs)
    3x(10xlat pull down to chest using 140lbs, 10xtricep rope pulldowns using 42.5 lbs, 10xstanding straight arm pull down using 70lbs)
    3x(10 triceps extension using 60lbs, 10 right arm and 10 left arm dumbbell rows using 50lbs, 10 left arm and 10 right arm lying dumbell triceps extensions using 25lbs)
    10minutes of stretching

    swim setup LCM
    4x100 free with snorkel on 1:30
    8x50 catch-up on 1min
    6x50 kick on 1min
    200 easy

    i start my training plan for Budapest next week. It will start out with a few weeks like I have been doing but it amps up gradually over the summer. I am looking at entering a local meet at Ford Aquatics in June to see where I am in a few events. Ideally I would do another meet in July(maybe zones) and then worlds in August. I still need to book the train ride from London to Budapest but everything is organized. I always get excited as a goal meet comes onto the radar and despite not being in the kind of shape I would want I am in better shape than I thought I would be in right now after the elbow surgery. So on that front I can't complain too bad. Touch wood the elbow is completely pain free and gaining strength all the time.
