We got about 4-5 inches of snow overnight, only about 1 inch of it had fallen as I drove home last night at 11:00pm. I woke up this morning to play driveway cleanup, and I have a pretty wide and long driveway, so it was fun. It's the only part of winter I don't really enjoy that much.

I did make time for some swim time afterward though, and before working on the house.

Warmup:

500 Free
(500/500)

Flutter Kick Set w/ board:
5 x 50 @ 1:00
1 x 50 @ :45
4 x 50 @ :55
1 x 50 @ :45
3 x 50 @ :50
1 x 50 @ :45
2 x 50 @ :50
1 x 50 @ :45
1 x 50 @ :50
1 x 50 @ :45
(1000/1500)
I made them all.

5 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:20 (just cruised them around 1:12s or so)

"Challenge Set": (as listed at the YMCA on the white board)
I modified the intervals for me of course...they were a bit on the lax side.
8 x 25 Fly @ :30
3 x 100 Free cruise @ 1:30
6 x 25 Fly @ :25
3 x 100 Free cruise @ 1:30
4 x 25 Fly @ :20

50 EZ and out

3000 Yards


I've got the leg power for sure, but my arms just don't quite have it any more. My left shoulder is a bit sore at times, probably mostly swimming related from all the past, plus my work and such as well. It doesn't really hurt when I swim too much, but afterward I feel it. Oh well, come "game time", I'm ready to go!

    That was generally my experience last year. When I did race, it almost always felt even better than in workout ... but the aftermath of pain a day or two after racing was generally much worse than the pain after workout.

    Are you doing any sort of preventive exercises for your shoulder? If not, I can recommend the ones that worked for me.

    I'm not currently doing much besides going to work (which is strenuous), and working on my house rebuild (which is time consuming), but I do know a few I could try to work in. I'm also open to new ideas too.
