    Thursday, 1/3/2019 Pool Workout

    Still feeling a little beat up, but that's OK - don't need a lot of pop yet at this point in the season. Will sacrifice that for getting a little stronger right now. Just kept moving today, nothing too noteworthy.

    Started looking at pricing for flights/hotels/rental car for Nationals - looks like it would be closing in on $1k... which is a lot to spend for a swim meet. That plus getting the bill for my colonoscopy and being pretty significantly higher than I expected and I'm having some second thoughts about going there. So... my coach mentioned this as a possibility and I'm going to look into it... I may sign up for a USA-S meet in February to qualify for Sectionals (they are at Mizzou which is relatively close!) and do a day or two of them mostly unrested, and then use Ozark SCY Champs the last weekend of March as my taper meet. Gotta decide pretty quick though because February isn't that far away.

  8. Workout 12/31/18: noon

    by , December 31st, 2018 at 05:18 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Quiet couple of weeks due to work and holiday pool closures. I have been hitting an 80# punching bag with a 20min workout 3-4 times a week which seems to be helping my shoulders. Swim today at lunchtime...

    200 free/200 back/200 im drill
    600 shark swim
    50 ez
    Build a 200 IM
    50 ez
    200 loosen and out
    [Sole/Rec/2500 yds/50 min]
    =======================

    I went over 111 miles for the year which is twice as much as last year. I had some good swims at meets although not as many OW swims as I would have liked. Overall a good year...I'll take it!

    by , December 31st, 2018 at 04:58 PM (Blog)
    Dec 27 LCM danny jones pool
    (Floating bulkhead in use but swam LCM, going under it each 50)
    200 fr ez wu
    1800 lcm various kicking with fins
    5 x 50 flutter kick on 0:90 without fins

    Dec 28

    Dec 30
    5 x 0:30/2:00 rogue fanbike/woodland curve treadmill on 4:30
    active recovery on bike

    Dec 31 LCM (pool had bulkhead but went under as I approach it each length to maintain LCM)
    300LCM fr with snorkel
    300LCM UWAK (under water atlantis kick) 10-15m per breath
    6 x 50LCM Br on slow
    1000 LCMkick with snorkel and fins mix of flutter and UWAK
    10 x nb 25 SCM fr on 1:00
    25 fly with fins

    First time swimming fly since april 2016 just to see how my shoulders can take it. My right bicep felt wrong at the lower tendon so I stopped. Probably just not used to the new biceps attachment configuration.

    My lower back started going out a few weeks ago, was worse on 27th, but getting better now. Probably form all the running iíve been doing in recent preparation for approaching afr fitness test. Hoping for another 100, but i donít know - fine line between peak fitness and breaking down to unsalvageable

    Not exactly the threshold set I had planned, but I felt really labored in the water today. I can definitely feel the accumulated heaviness from several weeks of lifting, and the short term soreness from going up in weight yesterday.

    Wednesday, 12/26/2018 Pool Workout

    Getting up early on Christmas break!

    200 fr :30 rest
    300 k/d/s x50 :45 rest (fr/bk)
    400 k/l-arm/r-arm/sw x25 (fr/bk)

    4x100 pull :30 rest
    25 - scull
    25 - fr pull work catch
    25 - br pull (no glide)
    25 - fr pull work hand acceleration

    4x{100 fast/150 cruise 4:00, 125 cruise/100 fast 4:00}
    //So this was a broken fast efforts with staggered go times and varied distances to theoretically even the finishes out for the 3 of us there. So 72 year old Doug went at the top, former distance swimmer Julian went at the :05, I went at the :10. I hit the wall after the 3 round 1st fast 100 and only did 100 cruise after that and the 4th round - so my set was 100 less than as written. Still good effort!

    8x50 dr/sw, ch/sw 1:00 EZ

    8x25 :30 o-fast, e-ez
    //Also staggered. Doug at top, Julian at :01, me at :03.
