I experimented a bit at the gym today to see which upper body machines wouldn't hurt my elbows. The super pullover machine (which I've never used before) seemed like a winner. I limited the range of motion somewhat. I may start some tricep kickbacks with low weight too.
And 6 days in a row of swimming! I almost never do that. But I will be dry this weekend as the fam is journeying to Deep Creek MD for the Savageman Triathlon to do our relay. No! I am not doing the swim leg; Teen Fort is and it will be her first open water swim. Since, like me, she is not a distance freestyler, I expect her to dislike it. I am looking forward to spectating this time around. Probably safer anyway with cold air and cold water expected. I'm bummed that they've completely closed off the Westernport Wall though. We may have to track Mr. Fort down on Killer Miller after the swim instead. Mr. Fort and Runner Boy have researched the relays and fear they might not win again. There are apparently 3 serious triathletes doing the relay instead of the half iron distance. I have urged them to recruit a real swimmer, but they want to keep it all in the family.
