  2. Workout 01/05/19: morning

    by , January 5th, 2019 at 11:44 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    First practice of the new year for my Masters group and we did our annual 50 x 50s on :60.

    I did...
    400 warm-up
    :60 swims as:
    5 x (4 x75, then 3 pairs of 50s: kick, back, free)
    Extra 50 at the end.
    [Masters/Rec/3450 yds/60 min]
    ==========================

    Everybody looks forward to this workout each January, and my game plan was to up the yardage a little bit with the 75 and I was able to make it free to them throughout the set. As in years past, I set up my phone in a portable speaker so that we had some tunes blasting while waiting on the wall, this year I swam with Jim, Greg, Libby, Sean, Rebecca and Melissa.

  5. 1|4|19 LCM

    LCM - bulkhead installed, dove below it ea 50 again (more interesting this way, get a solid mid-pool boost too)

    5 x 200 IMK on 6:00
    • fl done as UWA (atlantis) with 3-4 breaks for breaths
    • br and fr with snorkel

    600 of drills with surf fins

    50SCM left foot kick
    50SCM right foot kick
    • my left leg kicks 10 seconds faster with less kicks though it is weaker, and I account it is due to how floppy and flexible the foot and ankle is compared to the rt.

    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.

    200 warmdown

    3800y

    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.

    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!

    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

    Saturday, 12/29/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - plyos, movement warmup

    Conditioning - in teams of two (with my wife)
    70 cal bike
    70 box jump overs
    70 DL 115#
    70 hang power cleans 115#
    70 burpees
    70 shoulder to overhead 115#
    70 DL 115#

    2:06 faster than we did last year - so we're still getting better at CF even though I've replaced half of my training time with swimming. Cool!

    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.
