The Swimming Continues

Rate this Entry
Swimming in an outdoor pool has lured me back into swimming more often. How wonderful it is to breathe fresh air! This morning I did the following workout:

300 easy swim

300 pull with buoy and paddles

300 dolphin kick with board

300: 150 dolphin on back w/fins, 150 dolphin on side with fins

4 x 25 underwaters

2 x 200 back with paddles

4 x 50 - 3 rt/3 lt/3 full fly

100 easy

2000 SCM

Yesterday, ran 2 miles in the morning and did the following weight workout:

Bench press: bar x 5, 65 x 5, 3 sets of 95 x 5

Lat hi row: 90 x 5, 3 sets of 110 x 5

Hammer curls: 2 sets of 12 x 10

Squats: bar x 5, 95 x 10

Leg lifts in captain's chair: 2 sets of 20

Trying to decide if I should pick up more running and punt the squats or keep the squats and do just a little bit of running. I want to be strong, but I am carrying just a little bit more weight than I would like right now. Nothing works better to drop weight and body fat than running. Running more than 2 or 3 miles at a time though does not go well with squats, at least not with me. I may need to work up to doing some runs of 6 miles if I hope to see any drop in the weight. I might punt squats except for just doing the bar until the end of the summer and do some running right now.
