Spent 35-40 minutes with my ART/chiro doc. He worked over my neck and shoulders (delts, lats, teres and infraspinatus). I need to get some more specific exercises for my pesky infraspinatus muscle. Really should re-watch my Buchberger video to remember all the different exercises and add some to the RC regimen.
I asked him why neck issues always seem to surface upon getting out of bed in the morning (at least for me). (See, Ande, I'm always ASKING. ) He said that typically the neck issues are related to something you did during the day, and that the neck muscles tighten over night. No idea what I did during the day to cause the neck issue -- I think it occurred after a day off. But it could also be due to restless sleeping.
200 fly drills
8 x 25 fly spin drill w/MF
4 x 75 free @ 1:15
(with fins except breast)
(The 25 frees always make me the most tired. Wonder why? Less time under water?)
16 x 25 breast, alternate 25 AFAP, 25 EZ
16 x 25 back, alternate 25 AFAP, 25 EZ
16 x 25 free, alternate 25 AFAP, 25 EZ
8 x 25 fly, alternate 25 AFAP, 25 EZ
8 x 25 fly, alternate easy speed fly/EZ
Speed feels a bit off. Probably because I haven't been doing as much AFAP work. After my meet, going to shift into more speed work.
My fly technique is better when I'm going easy speed. I think I am more apt to go into bouncy Stevenson fly mode when I sprint.
Going to take the next couple days fairly easy (around 2500 maybe) and not lift, as my meet is this weekend, not next weekend as I thought. Duh. Good thing Mini-Fort reminded me. Timing not the greatest (again -- I'm cursed. ).
