  1. 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

    Srdan is going to think I am full of it, since I just griped to him yesterday that I was "100-ed out" after Saturday's set. The club team was basically doing their own version of 6x100 @ 6:00. I wasn't about to repeat the set, so I tried to "jazz" it up a little bit. The aim was to not give my legs a rest, but still let them get "flushed" of lactic acid with the 100 smooth kick. Meanwhile my arms had to just sit there and bake. It worked pretty well. Definitely plan to recover tomorrow
