Got in a longer session today, though I still kept the amount of weight conservative as I ramp up again. I've decided I'm going to do more leg work in the gym. In the past, I've done very little -- just squats and maybe a leg press here and there. I'm going to add in leg extensions and seated leg curls with a small-ish range of motion.
My legs were slightly sore today from the run -- that's what I get for not running for over 2 months ... I could feel my core muscles too; and those are usually never sore.
Ran across this article/study on ab work. I was a bit surprised by the rankings of core exercise. I would have expected the ab roller and planks to be higher.
Chlorine posted this on the forum and it also looks worth looking at:
I'm heading to Mason tonight and will update my blog with my swim later. This will likely be one of my last Tuesday/Thursday night sessions, as my kids' practices/dinner/homework tend to interfere with me getting to these practices during the school year and Mr. Fort is often working/traveling. So I will become a Sunday regular once again. I've heard this Sunday's practice will not contain one stroke of freestyle ...
I sent in my transfer of affiliation form to re-join GMUP. Though I LOVED swimming with all my Academy Bullets teammates at Nationals. It should be effective by the Sprint Classic. I'll just need to swim the Fall Ball, if I do, unattached.
