Oops! 12/26 - 1/1

Somehow I missed my obligatory post last week. Maybe it was that I did so little. Whatever. Here it is.

Monday I did some major lifting at Plate City. The bench went like this:

14 X 100
7 X 120
6 X 140
3 X 156
1 X 167
1 X 178
failed @ 183
4 X 150
4 X 150
4 X 150

Tuesday, Penny went with me to Cleveland and dropped me at the pool. She went on the the kids to visit with the grands. I swan

700
200 pull with paddles
150 as 100 hard/50 easy r:30
150 as 100 hard/50 easy
5 X through
total: 3,200
I think there was a breathing pattern in there. The Mad Swimming Scientist has been real pissy about breathing of late. What's up with that?

Wednesday, Penny and I went to Jackson. I purchased a neck harness from Play It Again Sports. I had issues with my neck last year in the really long stuff so I want to head that off at the pass. Each year, besides the normal conditioning stuff I do, I discover a new weakness to work on. This year, it is the neck.

Thursday I was back at DSU for both the am and pm swims. At lunch I did a straight 4,000 in 1:18:58 for a 1:58 average. At Masters I swam

700
9 X 200
100 total, 2,600; 6,600 for the day. 

Friday I went back to DSU for 

1,300
6 X 50 @ 1:30
400 small paddles
three X through
200 easy
total: 3,600 meters.

Sunday I usually only go to church and rest but this time I did another big session at Plate City.

For the week I swam 13, 400 meters, ran none, and lifted weights two times.
