Just a short workout today. I was tired from all the Rushall type sets of yesterday. Jim and I agreed that the masters recovery mode from USD is different. We also spent a lot of time chatting with our resident Hungarian Olympian and masters WR holder. He is a HIT/Rushall devotee. The bursts I was doing at the end were close to the 1:1 work to rest ratio that Rushall prescribes, but I didn't feel like I could do more than 4 in a row. Something to work on perhaps using his fail/skip method.

My lower left shoulder is really bugging me. I know it's a sign of a weak scapula. I really need to get back to the gym or at least do my RC/scap exercises more regularly.

15 swimmer stereotypes: Hmm, the only one that might fit me is the Flipper.

    Enjoyable swim today, Leslie. Tamas was never a world champion per se--his best placement, I am pretty sure, was 6th in the 400 IM LCM at Worlds. He does, however, have some world records now as a masters swimmer.

    Yep that's him. I would have guessed taller though, very imposing guy. His first st was ripping off 57s on a 1:05 interval.

    This is a good exercise that I do, well at least a version of it. It's not because I want to get stronger in butterfly, but because I need some lower scapula strength. It's pretty good and I am not sure if you do it. I don't do it everyday, because really 3x a week is all that you need.
