Ok, today’s lesson:
- When I am walking and I feel the “onset” of the glute pain (“prepain”) I an sometimes avoid it by speeding up. Of course, I can only do this when I haven’t had a power reduction in my left leg. Today: mile 1 was a sluggish 14;55; second mile of 14:10 felt better.
- Swimming: I have gotten to the phase where “cheap improvement” is over; to improve further, I need to make my technique better and to swim more. But I have to do so cautiously.
Walk (added 0.1 to the walk)
It was not 100 percent pain free, but I’d say that the discomfort maxed out at maybe a 3 out of 10 and improved on the second mile.
More PT then a swim:
600 warm up of side/back
400 of 25 drill, 25 swim with fins
1000 alternating 250 swim, 250 pool. Sluggish:
4:45, 9:22, 14:11, 18:41 (swim: 4:45, 4:49, pull: 4:37, 4:30)
200 cool down of back, side. Note: side 50 is 1:10.
Weight: 202.8 before swim, 201.7 after.
Shoulder: no pain, but I can feel it at times. I had better keep the stretch.
