Well, I was quite shocked that I was not sore on Tuesday after the extensive weight workout that I did. I'm not going to get too excited about it though because the last thing that needs to happen is for me to be overconfident on my weights. Too easy to get hurt! I guess I didn't get sore because I am so well-rested after my two year taper.
In any case, hit the weight room again today and did the following workout:
5 minute warm-up on gauntlet
Bench press: bar x 10, 70 x 6, 90 x 4, 100 x 2
Lat hi row: 90 x 10, 100 x 6, 110 x 4, 120 x 2
Hammer curls: 2 sets of 12 x 10
Squats: Bar x 20
3 sets of leg lifts in Captain's Chair
I am somewhat hopeful that I will not have lost too much in the pool. I haven't totally been out of the pool, having done some workouts over the last couple of years. I just haven't done a meet in two years. Meet shape is quite another story. Guess I'll have to enter some this fall to see if I have any hope of getting back to a competitive level.
