Executives at my company get an all day physical annually at the Coopers Clinic in Dallas. I had one in 2007 and had somehow managed to avoid it since. I am a typical male and avoid the doctor like the plague. At my annual review my chairman told me he was insisting on me taking a physical this year. Today was my day and as a result I had to fast and avoid exercise 24 hrs before the physical. It was very interesting comparing all my stats from this one to my last. Everything came back stellar. My body weight was 180 today, body fat 13.5%, stress test I lasted 30 mins on the tread mill and could have gone longer but my knee started to swell. I had the full body MRI and got the all clear on all organs, blood work was within the normal ranges on everything. My cholesterol level was high but primarily it was my HDL so all was good. Tonight I decided to go to the pool for a swim. I was tired tonight and I put this down to lack of food today combined with the stress test.
1000 swim with snorkel
12x50 2 turn 50s on 45
15x100 swum 5-4-3-2-1 starting on 1.20 and descending 5 each cycle
4x(4x25 underwater on 35, 4x50 free on 40, 100 back on 1.40)
Nothing really impressive tonight. I made the main set but was tired and sluggish throughout.
