I started off today with a little dryland medicine ball work at the Y pool's new dryland workout area. They have a cable machine, various sizes of med balls, mats, small weights and benches, and some more stuff.
My swim buddy was there, and I showed him a minature version of Mike Barrowman's medicine ball/dryland routine that I used to do in the early 90s with my club team. Finished up with a couple sets of 10 vertical streamline leaps for fun as well. Now that I'm home, I can feel the 15 minutes that I did in my arms and chest. I guess this means I'm "out of shape".
Good thing I'm racing in a meet on Sunday too.

I didn't really feel much like swimming tonight, so that's it. I may skip out of a couple hours of work around lunchtime tomorrow and head over to the LCM pool for afternoon lap swimming, then get ready for an early morning drive to Spokane on Sunday for the meet.
