I'm losing all kinds of slacking TV watching time so I can workout because work is killing me. I'm still getting my workouts in though so at least I don't go postal at work.
Not much time to blog these days. My swimming has been off and on. Today was a totally on day as I really swam strong...for me. I was busting out some decent times without soreness. The other day was a sucky one where my arms hurt before the first 100 warmup and it was just ugh. I talked to a guy at work who son swims on the high school team. He is also getting ready for some triathlons. Anyway, he routinely swims a mile in 34 minutes. He's been reading the Total Immersion book about technique and such. I had him ask his son how many strokes he does per length. He found out that when he's in distance mode it 9 FRICKIN strokes. I almost died. That's amazing and during sprints its 15. Since I started breathing every other stroke my stroke count has gone up a bunch. I definitely would like to watch him swim with 9 strokes. I think it would be interesting to see. I wonder if he kicks really efficient and just pulls like a monster?
Must go to sleep...
