I took a 1/2 family sick day today and took youngest daughte (HS senior) to the orthopedic Dr. at 11:30. I could have made the diagnosis myself but instead I paid this guy to do it. (patellar tendonitis, chondromalatia too!) He told her to do nothing but therapy, stretching, and ibuprofin 4x day, then come back and see him in 2 weeks. Tonight after therapy she did a 32 minute swim of mostly free and a bit of fly in the 20 yard backyard pool. It was so wonderful to see her swimming again! I got myself a lovely glass of chard and sat out there and watched her! I miss Sarah's swimming career. (she doesn't)
After the Dr. appointment I had a couple free hours so I drove up to Noblesville and did this LCM workout at FPAC:
*200 Free Warm-up
*400 Kick (100 flutter stomach no fins, 100 flutter back w/fins, 100 flutter stomach w/fins, 100 flutter stomach no fins)
*Super 1600! -all on 1:00 per lap interval (50-100-50-150-50-200-50-250-50-200-50-150-50-100-50-50)
*4 X 200 (150 Freestyle, rest 10 sec and do last 50 stroke IM order) on 4:00
It was a calm, sunny, and clear sky day at FP. The pool was basically empty of kids, (they were still in school)just a few adults swimmers and a noodler. After my workout I sat in a chair and lounged for 15 minutes or so, SWEET !
Back to work all day tomorrow!
