Thursday Sep 3rd, 2009

Weight 214
weight loss & strength gain are part of my plan this season

Masters has no practice this Saturday, because there's a UT Football Game at 6:00, & parking's crazy. I asked Eddie if I could train with UT Men & he said YES! They're doing a quadrathlon which is a fast 50 of each stroke for time.

Ordered a FS PRO JAMMER because mine is about to fall apart

thinking about doing P90X to help with weight loss & general fitness

We're back in the swim center

    When would you do P90X? How many minutes per day does it take?

    Of course he did. You are there to embarrass the freshmen that slacked off before showing up.

    Stop eating so much.

    You owe me $200.

    I wonder if I can keep up with you if I wear a full body suit.

    Hey Speedo
    I'm psyched about doing the quad with UT Men


    Leslie,
    I haven't done the P90X
    I'm thinking about it & wanted ask swimmers who've done it
    I'll talk with Larry

    my goal is to not get last, I don't think very many swimmers slacked off this summer, maybe some in August

    thanks for the great advice, it's simple formula,
    exercise more, aerobic & weight training, eat less

    wonder if I can keep up with you if I wear a full body suit.
    come train with us on a fast friday and find out
    practice is 6:30 tomorrow drop in & have fun

    The cherry on top would be a 100IM!

    The U of Maryland College Park guys used to do that in the late 90s. They wouldn't train in the summer(the Philly area ones) and showed in Sept ok, I think. But, I can't imagine any self respecting swimmer showing up to UT without busting their hump during the summer. Isn't there some kind of UT commandment, thou shalt not slack off during the summer or do a taper practice when you aren't tapering.

    Yeah, Eddie doesn't recruit too many slackers.

    Doh! Missed it. I don't have a tech suit anyway...

    Dallas to Austin is a bit of a commute to a Friday morning practice.

    Yes yes, I really need Ande and his frequent lane mate Tyler to put me in my place. After a workout with them, I would probably become a runner.
