    There was a constant drizzle while I swam, maybe a little actual rain here/there. I was thinking the lifeguards would have pulled me but I managed to get in my full workout.
    Even though I swam last night I still felt good today. Really enjoyed that, "fun with 300s set."

    Well I had planned to double today, but it proved fortunate that I attempted the double, because around noon, heavy storms rolled in. I had still planned to swim in the rain, but then came the thunder and lightning. So my double turned into a single. But honestly, my legs have been tired all afternoon from this morning's workout, so maybe it was a blessing in disguise!

  3. 5/7-5/8/19 Workouts

    by , May 8th, 2019 at 08:45 AM (Swimming Through Jello)
    Tuesday, 5/7/2019 CrossFit PM Workout

    Warmup - stretching, plyos, running, PVC warmup

    Strength - A) Split Jerk - 95/2, 135/2, 165/2, 185/2, 205/2
    //A little rickety, but better than I expected for this point in the comeback.

    B) Bent-over Row - 115/8,8,16

    Conditioning - 3 rounds
    15 hand release pushups
    9 pullups (butterfly)
    200m run
    4:52

    //Super ran out of gas by the end. Lungs have a lot of catching up to do.

    Wednesday, 5/8/2019 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - plyos, KB warmup

    Strength - Deadlift - 135/5, 185/3, 225/2, 275/2, 295/2, 320/2
    //Went up really, really slow, but it went up. So I'm not quite back at square one, but not too far off. My first CF workout (and first time deadlifting) 7 years ago I maxed out at 285 for a single.

    Conditioning - EMOM 12
    1 - 15 KB goblet squats 53#
    2 - 12 cal assault bike
    3 - 6 DB push press per arm 40#
    //Scaled down from the prescribed weights but still almost died.

    I figured some goals I have for next winter/spring season. Partly extra motivation on the comeback trail here, partly to guide my training over the next year. I don't know why I'm doing this to myself but I'd like to get some of my middle distance chops back. So, in that vein, my goals for next year (hopefully Spring Masters Nationals?) are sub-2:00 200 fly and sub-2:10 200 breast. Two more barriers I never really had a chance to break in college. We'll see how it goes.
