I did feel a slight ache in the right shoulder then a “catch” toward the end (after stopping). No, I don’t want to go back, but I will adjust what I am doing. I do feel a forward pull in my shoulders; time to bring back rows in one form or another (make them back friendly?) and chest stretches.
And maybe, gradually reintroduce back stroke.
Sleepy…a bit high after a night of Chiefs baseball (10-1 loss..4 errors).
Swim: 1800 yards:
5 x 50 free, 50 side
10 x 25 drill, 25 swim (lots of forward kicking)
10 x 50 on the 1:10. Mostly 50-51 though the last one was 49
50 back, 50 breast
100 of 25 dolphin kick, 25 breast
LOT of slow paced PT; did everything plus
Walk. 2.02 in 30:10 (14:57 pace). Note: I felt it at 1.65 or so; I have a conditioning problem. My abs tire and I slump forward and I end up losing spinal support.
Baseball last weekend I got to see 2 of Bradley’s games against Indiana State: a 12 inning loss then a nice win. The win had the following happen: in the bottom of the 7’th with ISU up 2-1, 2 out, BU had a runner on second. ISU intentionally walks the BU batter and the next player up hits a home run! Great win to get the series win.
Chiefs: oh boy..this was a 10-1 loss. First 2 runs were NOT the fault of the starter; 2 out, runner on second, sharp ground ball to the short stop who decided to play games with the runner instead of going for the all but certain force at 1’st..bad throw..runners advance to 2’nd and third, then the next batter hits a single to drive in two.
Short stop made THREE errors…but is on the team due to a .378 batting average and a ton of RBIs. The kid can hit. Maybe a future DH?
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.
