Friday- September 12, 2008

Well, back home this AM before taking off again out of town. Since i really missed a workout Wednesday and Monday was the last real workout I really felt like shit in the water this AM, just really sloppy and still having issues breathing to the left side. I think just a few days out of the water when I'm so fresh at getting back into it effects me stroke/technique alot more than if I've been back at it for a year or two. But anyway, I'm off to S. Carolina this AM for an Alumni weekend. I still got up at 5:30 this AM and swam so here it is:

Wednesday- September 10, 2008

Well since I'm on the road for business its not business as usual for working out. Unfortunately my alarm didn't go off yesterday morning so I didn't get in the gym to do weights and didn't have time when I got to Cleveland after they didn't even have any weights.

So today I got into the Hampton Inn's (Middleburg Heights, OH)indoor pool. The problem....its only about 10 yards long, if that. I could push off, take 2-3 strokes until I reach the other side. So I improvised.

Swam about 40 laps
10 x 1:00 holding onto the stair's pole (stationary) :45 moderate/:15 Hard/:15 rest
Swam about 20 more laps doing steamline, sculling, goofing off

Then jumped into their hot tub for about 15 minutes. Not much of a workout, but I feel better and I'm now relaxed!
