I took my rad new Rob Aquatics suit on its maiden voyage today and it was glorious :) I was expecting to be made fun of at least a little bit by my workout buddies and they took it a little easier on me than I would have expected. I guess when a dude shows up with a zebra striped swimsuit that has his name emblazoned across the ass there’s not a lot to say, ha!
Anyways, we had a pretty decent workout. A whole bunch of pulling this afternoon. I just rocked a pool buoy, some of the other kids had snorkels and hand paddles. In theory we were going to start on a 1:25 base and walk it down 5 seconds each round until we hit 1:10 for the last 100. It was a nice idea but it wasn’t happening. After missing the interval on round 2 we pushed that interval to round 3 and managed to hold it.
400/300/200/100 pull on 1:25 base
300/200/100 pull on :15 rest (we missed the planned interval)
200/100 pull on 1:20 base
100 pull all out
Now, I’m sore all over. Between a mile of choppy ocean swimming and today’s workout I feel like my ribcage is working on unattaching itself from the rest of my body. Hopefully I feel a little better in the morning! I was messing around with a camera for a bit today so I’ve got some pictures. I don’t however have pics of my new suit… I just couldn’t bring myself to ask someone “hey could you take pictures of my ass, it’s for the internet.” Maybe next time…
