  4. 2|23|19 and 2|24|19 SC SCY meet

    by , February 25th, 2019 at 06:11 PM (Blog)
    Had a great time with my friends and team this weekend up in North Myrtle Beach SC. I entered this meet with less than 2000 yards of swimming accomplished over 2+ years, excluding occasional kick-only workouts I've been doing several times or more a month. I included my prior results from August 2016 to see where I slowed.

    2|23|19 (8|26|16)

    50 back 35.36 (31.58) +3.78
    100 breast 1:27.97 (1:19.38) +8.59
    50 breast 38.09 (33.67) +4.42
    100 free 1:03.57 (58.37) +5.20
    50 free 28.46 (25.71) +2.75
    50 free (200 fr relay) 1 (leg 3) 28.09
    ​50 free (200 IM relay) 2 (leg 4) 27.89
    ​50 free (200 fr relay) 3 (leg 4) 27.40
    ​50 free (200 fr relay) 4 (leg 4) 26.98

    I thought my freestyle would be the stroke to suffer, but it was the opposite. Interestingly was for each relay leg I swam, it was a little faster than the prior, which tells me the 50 free is so much to do with the execution of the race and less to do with conditioning.

    I'm not going to whine about how slow these times are because I am actually happy with them, excluding the 50 br, 100 br, and 50 bk

    Friday 2/22/19 Garage Squats

    Long week - hard work at the pool and gym and busy week at work. Just squats today. Last lift 'til after Sectionals!

    Back Squat - 135/3, 185/3, 225/3, 265/3, 300/3, 285/5, 270/7, 255/10

    Went up 5 more pounds to get to an even 300. Was a challenge after accelerating the progression the past two weeks, but happy to be back to 300 triple - I looked back at my log and this time last year I had struggled a 275/3 and bombed an attempt at 285/3.

    Another week out of pool while in middle of trying to get started on a schedule. This time was from influenza A. 4 days of fever (at 101.8 I would drop a few advil). Also had to avoid pool a month ago - I had to get 7 stitches in my leg (do have a gnarly pic).

    Shoulders on otherhand, still seem to be tolerating the pool.

    I am free of the flu, except lingering upper respiratory effects. But as of today I should be 24hrs beyond period of transmitting.

    100 fr
    100 br
    1200 kick with surf fins and snorkel
    100 fr

    Ill start swimming harder when Im ready to. My only concern with the approaching meet is how I handle entering water from the block. Felt a little scary from the side of pool earlier, but the streamline arms feeling stronger than then

    Actually feels good going to meet once without any expectations or stress

    It's been 10 days out of the water. Last week we had a snowstorm that closed the Rec early and I picked up a nasty cold on Friday which left me on the couch all weekend. I did count for the One Hour Swim, which saw Libby, Matt, Kevin, Jeff, Anne, Greg, Jim, and Carol knock out a lot of yards! I will plan to do mine next week (before the end of month deadline).

    Today I worked all day and just took it easy tonight as the team swam. I did 1300 in 25 minutes alongside my wife, who hit a PR of 700 yds in 30 min.
