- Wall squat: 10 sets of 4 altitude drops with a break in between each set, during which I was supposed to visualize recovery. My fave.
- Push up: 10 sets of 4 altitude drops with a break in between each set, during which I was supposed to visualize recovery.
- Crate crunch: 5 sets of 40 quick-style reps with 30 seconds between each set.
- 200 warm up
- Something else
- 300 pull
- 10 sets of 50s
- 2 sets of 50s
I felt great the entire time. I wasn't getting tired, 10 seconds was plenty of rest, and I wasn't getting slower (neither was I getting faster) as time went by. I can't say I was thinking about chest up and good strokes, but I'm hoping that if I think about it all during the gym workouts, I won't have to think about it at all while I'm racing—I'll just do it right and well. Ginny mentioned this morning that they are considering putting together a Masters' Swim Meet for the adult swimmers at the local Ys. How cool would that be!
It's a good thing the swim was good, because the afternoon workout was anything but. 100 altitude drops:
- Scapular pull up
- Glute ham
- Wall squat
- 1-leg squat (skipped)
- Bench press w/30-lb bar, then 2–3 min break
- Bench press w/20-lb bar
When I got home I went over to talk to Will. This is going to happen frequently and I needed him to know that. When I was doing just 3 days a week, I could do it and, if I wasn't doing well, just do it again the next day and do it right. But if we're working out every day, I can't save a workout for the next day because I can't do it that day. I don't know if he really understood/understands, but maybe.
