Post hoc ergo Propter hoc

It started off ok; did PT, walked, more PT and then I did a few chores before heading to the poll. That included taking out the trash..and ..of course some bees had started to make a nest under the lip of the lid.

One stung me.

Now my hand is swollen. But the bee sting came before the pool opened at 11 am and so I swam anyway. And I ended doing my “fastest” (least glacial?) set of 100 yard repeats since 2014.

I didn’t say “FAST” but they were faster than I had been doing.

So: bee stings means a faster swim time?

The workout: indoor PT

2 miles:

About the walk: I started out to do the first 1.1 and then finish PT..but I had it going (13:58 mile 1) and so I just kept going and did it all at once. It was ok.

Then PT 2, then the bee sting.

I decided to swim anyway:

600 (side /back)

400 of 25 fin drill, 25 swim

5 x 100 hard, 100 back on the 5 minutes: 1:37, 1:37, 1:39, 1:39, 1:39..first rep I chased a faster young man.

200 pull cool down in 3:36

Before swimming: 202.3 after: 200.9

Cousin visit

Which WAS nice. But…the “photo with them” was botched.

Workout notes: PT, a walk that went better than expected, then weights. Note: I did the walk after 40 of my 60 pull ups and after most (but not all) of my PT.

Note: this was 2:24 faster than the same course yesterday. Go figure.

Pull ups: 4 sets of 10, 4 sets of 5 (mixed grip)

Push ups: 30 incline, 30 decline, 30 incline, 10 deficit


Bench press 4 sets of 5 x 156

dead: 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 275 (8 inch)

shoulder: 10 x 94, 94, 105 (7-3)

curls: 3 sets of 10.

Weight appears to be heading down.

PAIN: walk went really, really well.
