  1. 7|10|20 LCM

    Had to take 2 wks off after crushing tip of left index finger working concrete. Built a gate using 2 6x6’s sharing a footer with 4x4’s (12 bags of post mix). Using little water in my mix (like the romans did thousands of years ago) I was working the finish with a block of wood and hammer, then I smashed the tip of my finger. The end popped. Today I waterproofed the finger swimming until it got wet.

    1 km bk with fins (17:30)

  2. 6|25|20 LCM recovery swim

    Warmup: ~75M
    Swim: 2000m of bk with surf fins 35:40
    Warmdown: 100 kick

    I will be extra slow now for my 50’s on 3:00 next workout, but doing this every so often I believe helps in long run



    400 m barefoot sprint on soft track 1:21+

    Will start to include drylands in the blog as my training becomes less fake. Training for SCM 6 months from now.

  3. 6|24|20 LCM

    Waited 30 minutes for a spot to swim. Spent the time doing drylands -push-ups, pullups, and #25 high rep DB shoulder presses

    6 x 50 as 20.3m 6-7UWDK +2-3 fr strokes / ez bk to wall
    5 x 20.3m 6-7UWDK +2-3 fr strokes on much rest
    • did 12’s and up

    2 x 50 flutter kick kinda fast


    Discovered my own little secret tip (dryland activity) that utilizes muscle control in order to maintain a tight neutral position used for primary UW’s as well as all other swimming to lesser extents. Balancing yourself upside down on one of those yoga shoulder platforms found on amazon. Regular handstands work too, but are a little too demanding to concentrate right

    Vino burning day. Unfortunately I’ve more to burn.

    2.4K bk with short fins (40:48)
    8 x 50 on 2:00 flutter kick, 50’s on the first, then like 1:10’s remainders.

    Had the lane to myself entire swim. Ankles getting kick back. Imagined how nice it would be to swim backstroke OW early sunrise in the 80�F tropical sea using a HUD equipped goggles for navigation

    Speed workout

    100 bk fins
    200 drill fins
    100 1 arm fr drill

    On 4:00:
    50 fr fins 30
    50 fr fins 27
    *50 fr fins collision

    *hit another swimmer head-on @40m on my side of the lane. I will never assume anyone will swim in the predetermined area again. The combined impact about 3m/s. I seem fine and the other swimmer didn’t seem concerned.
    Just left the pool

    100 fr ez wu
    4 x 50 fr fins on 1:00 (31-34)
    5 x 50 fr fins on 4:00 (31, 30, 29, 28, 28)
    50 kick

    Swimming portions were the easy part, the in-betweens got painful. My right side all the way down to my ankle felt much more than the left for some reason

    The news about such a great swimmer being struck by a craft quite upsetting. I pray he recovers fully.
