So what does the Bearsharktopus have to do with anything? Well nothing really, this just really amuses me… I can see this crawling out of a lake in the Pacific Northwest during an open water swim. Anyways… if the new Conejo Valley Multisport Masters team starts looking for a mascot, this is my submission :) That would look pretty hot on a swim cap yeah?
Back to reality… today in the pool I got thrown a beating! The last couple of days I have been playing with dryland exercise. Some lifting and time on the elliptical machine. The mix of weight lifting and swimming has my upper body on fire. I’m at the can’t-raise-arms-over-head stage right now. Midway though the main set for today I was looking for excuses in my head to quit and lay on the pool deck. After I realizing that no one would believe that I sprained my pancreas I decided to keep going… I’m only kind of glad that I’m not a quitter. I hurt dude. Hopefully it will fade away tonight!
Here’s today’s workout:
300 dolphin kick
4 x 100 descending interval (1:30, 1:25, 1:20, 1:15)
12 x 25 fly @ 1:00
Repeat x 8
75 free @ 1:00
50 free @ 1:00
2500 yards total
It was harder than it looks!
