Sunday: Yoga 75 min

I had planned to swim at Sewy with Jim, but when I tried to leave, my car wouldn't start. Mr. Fort was gone on a long run, so I was carless. After Triple A arrived, I managed to get myself to a yoga class. The heat was (inexplicably) off. It was amazing how easy the class seemed without it.

However, I'm not sure yoga was the smartest thing, as my elbow was hurting more today. Probably all those down dogs put too much stress on it ... I did find my active wrap elbow icer, so will start using that.

Monday: Swum/SCY/Solo @ Sewy

Warm up:

the usual --
500 various
100 scull
8 x 25 shooters @ :40
100 EZ

Main sets:

8 x 25 back w/fins @ 100 pace @ :40
-- backstroke was bothering my elbow some, so I didn't want to do too many 25s
100 EZ

16 x (25 AFAP + 75 EZ @ 3-4:00)
-- 3 breast, 3 free, 3 back from the blocks, 3 breast, 4 kick
-- used fins on a few
125 EZ

8 x tethered SDK or kick w/bungee cord tied to block
-- hard to do SDK in a shallow pool bc you float up
125 EZ

6 x 25 no breath free w/fins @ :40
100 EZ

Total: 3500


After taking Saturday off (as per usual) and not doing much yesterday, I had more energy than usual today. I'm not sure I've ever done 16 x AFAP 25s in a row. I certainly feel plenty tired now. Off to do some Flexbar exercises.
