I had a nice swim this morning with Debbie from California. The pool was set up SCY. Hereís what I swam:
3 x 100 pull w/ paddles [Iím still getting used to using paddles.]
3 x (3 x 200 FR/BK halfsie, desc. 1-3) @ 3:10 [3:00, 2:50, 2:43; 2:58, 2:50, 2:39, 2:56, 2:45, 2:37]
8 x 50 Kick @ 1:05 [I experimented with doing these FR kick in plank position on my kickboard (board was submerged; I was propped on my elbows). This is a slow way to kick, but helps me think about using my ab muscles to keep the arch out of my spineówhether from mere association with Pilates/Yoga planks or from the demands of being in this position, Iím not sure.]
4 x (3 x 25 @ :30, desc. 1-3) I did these all FR
Then I drove up to the land of sweet tea and meat-and-two-sides to have lunch with my folks. I have convinced them to come down to the beach for Christmas, and I have been entrusted with cooking Christmas dinner, even the dressing (this is no small responsibility in my family). Then we will have a bigger dinner a few days after Christmas when my sister and her family visit the land of the boll weevil.
