Still no reoccurence of my kidney stone issue earlier in the week and still no word from my urologist as to whether they have even received the MRI. I have my appointment later today!
I woke feeling a little stiff after last nights weights session. I did not go full throttle last night but still had a good workout focusing on my legs.
Weights workout was my usual 3 rounds with each round reducing in number of reps from 10,8,6 and increasing weights from hard to max to fail(although last night I backed off one plate on fail and made all sets, so by definition I guess it was not fail last night).
3x(bench press, inclined becnh press, military press, seated row with hands inside, seated row with hands outside, lower back extension, leg extension, leg curls, leg press, lunges)
Todays swim workout was a mixed bag of tempo related sets.
400 swim with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45 focusing on left hand entry
4x200 kick on 3.20
10x100 on 1.20 swum 75 fast, 25 easy, with tempo trainer set to 0.84
12x25 on 25 with tempo trainer set to 0.7
4x400 pull on 4.30
100 from the block AFAP
Total 4600 scy
I held 1.03's on the 10x100 set, this was a hard way to swim the 100's, going fast for 75 and then easy for 25. The tempo trainer drove me nuts again but when you find a tempo that works it helps a lot. On the 25s I hit the tempo really well. The 400's pull I held 4.15's. When our coach said to get ouyt and get up on the block I thought he was joking, to which he replied he was not. My legs were shaking pretty bad when I stood on the blocks and my arms felt like mush. One of the younger guys was also told to get up with me, and he was sent 4 seconds ahead of me and my goal was to catch him. I went out really hard and ended up going 52 which totally surprised me. Overall a good workout. Tomorrow we have practice and then I head to watch my daughters meet where she is swimming back. I am looking forward to not competing and having an opportunity to hang out with my daughter.
