Fraudulent

Ok this morning wasn’t that bad; better than average WRT pain. And yeah, I got booster 2 on Friday and might be slightly less sharp.

What is fraudulent: I wore a marathon t-shirt and then wondered: “who in the hell am I kidding?” Ok, I’ve finished marathons..a lot of them..and 50K, 50 mile, 24 hour races and yes, 4 100 mile races. But..now…I have to quit before 2 miles to avoid irritating my nerve root too much. That’s pathetic.

The issue is that I am not quite used to paying attention to my posture, and now I am forced to.

Swimming: 1800 yards, though 900 of those were something other than crawl.

3 x 100 free, 100 side

2 x 100 drills (no fins)

4 x 25 drill, 25 free (focus: swim downhill)

200 in 3:32 (progress) then 4:30 later:

100 in 1:44, 100 in 1:46 (on the 2:30)

50 in 49, 1:30 later, 50 in 49

100 side

100 pull

100 breast

Total 900 crawl, 100 pull, 400 side, 100 breast, 300 drill

Slight shoulder ache; didn’t do rotator cuff before.

Outside for a LOT of PT; did many things; 45 minutes worth

Walk: so-so; I’d say 1.2 was symptom free, 1.6 was pain free; I was ready to quit at 1.75.
