Yesterday and Today

I need to please learn to log from the ipad, I think I did it once, but as to remembering how, well it is the learning curve issue. Did I swim yesterday? Yes. I swam at the SCFY, Sonoma County Family YMCA. I rather keep a steady mindful set while swimming at this time. I do not do flip turns, nor do I do kicking, or any short axis swimming. I have also experienced lingering effects in the lumbar region after the small amount of speed work I have practiced. I apparently have developed my own theories and techniques similar to the great Texas sprinters such as Garrett and the rest of Randy's sprinters. I believe strongly in speed play, in all forms and variations. Varying speed, including pace and tempo, are vital to developing strength and power in the water.

I have been swimming for time, as I swam over 30+ minutes on Friday.

Saturday I swam for over 35+ minutes.

JBT was a wonderful show at the Fox Theater in downtown Oakland. It was the culmination of their tour. Encore was a complete set. Good guy.

Ramping Up to Rant

But first, yesterday's activities at the Y, which included erging 25 minutes(5K), talking with another rower for the first 10 or so minutes.
Just swim baby, how much, how long, I forget. That is the main reason that I need to log the damn workouts, I forget. My body remembers, but my brain forgets.

Then I went for a quick walk at hte noon hour, just downtown and back. I developed a strained right lateral gastrocnemius. Go Swim.

Purposeful, Mindful,

Quick, I need to log yesterdays swim and then go.

What, 2ooo yards,
Wind sprints, including no breathers, 30 second goes, change of pace, and builds.
Correcting, watching head and hand entry for streamline body position through propulsive actions.
