Wednesday, 9/2/09
Outside pool, SCM with Carrie

400 swim free
3 x 200 pull breathe 3/5 by 25
(used buoy only, did them on 3:30)
300 kick choice; fins, board optional
(All w/ board, 100 free, 100 fly, 100 breast, free & fly w/fins)

3x around:
250 free with 20 sec. rest at moderate pace
(did these just under 4:00, a little slow but I am focusing on long strokes in order to get more DPS and reduce the stroke count)
3x50 (50 fly/50 back/50 breast) on RI :10-:15
make each round faster than the one before it
(my shoulder was a bit twingy this morning so I did 1-arm fly on the 1st 2 rounds.
on fly went 50-50-45, on back went 50-48-46, on breast went 1:00-1:00-:55)
20 sec. rest between rounds

swim down 200 easy
Total: 2700 meters

I'm thinking that it's time to get back onto a weight training program. I also am looking at the JasonLezak program and may adopt a modified version of that program.
I haven't been doing yoga lately. I think one of the poses in the sun salutation is partly responsible for some of my shoulder issues. I probably should go and substitute a different pose and see if that makes any difference.
