Building myself back up



  • @Rancid-Schnitzel your missus will be stoked with how long you can hold your breath for 🙂

    Dang. Friday already.

    Pretty good week.
    Tuesday: Back
    Wednesday: Legs am, swimming pm
    Thursday: chest and biceps am, swimming pm
    Friday: Back and tris.

    Swimming tomorrow morning should round it off well. Will ask this coach for a meal plan. I've never really done this amount of training (certainly swimming) before and not sure if my usual diet is adequate. Will be interesting to see what he recommends. So long as there's a treat meal in there somewhere I'm happy to eat whatever is recommended (except tinned tuna, hate that shit).

    Saturday: Swimming. Good session. Coach not there but put up a very good set.
    Sunday: More stationery exercise than anything else.

    Monday: Swimming. Always nice to jump into a warm pool on a cold day but it was like a warm bath this time. That's my excuse for struggling and hitting the wall for the 8x50 at 60sec. Couldn't feel my farging arms after 5. On a more positive note, butterfly is getting better and I'm actually starting to enjoy IMs. They certainly take it out of you though...

    Asked coach for an eating plan because I think I need to change things up to get through 4 sessions. He asked for my weight (75kg) and didn't believe me and one of the women there said bullshit. Stepped on the scales and it was actually slightly less 😆. Will be interesting to see what he comes up with. Definitely need to get more sleep but definitely also something lacking in the diet.

    Today: Shoulders. Not bad. Visit to the Physio on the cards me thinks. It's against my tightarse nature but I think I need a good rub down....

    Well apparently I don't look it. They thought I was significantly more than that. I'm deceptively light 😁

    The most I got to was 90 back in my late rugby days. That's alot for a short arse like me. Wasn't exactly shredded. Would have freaked out at being 75 then, but back then it was all about the GAINZ BRUH!

    True. No excuses for that.

    Sheet, almost a week. Will start from weekend. So solid swimming sesh on Saturday (ha, try saying that 3 times fast). Then had 10km fun run with gf on Saturday. That went really well. Shows you can train for a run by swimming. Have done very little running recently and still managed around 46 minutes. Could probably have done better but for the ridiculous bottleneck at the start (why do people go up the front if they'll tank after 200 metres) and the fact that no distances were marked on the course. But anyway pretty stoked with that and happy that the swimming is obviously great for overall fitness. Same applies for eldest who despite being very pissed off at having to get up at 6 on a Sunday did very well in his 5km. Youngest couldn't make it so got eldest to take his place in the 1km kids dash with gf's daughter. Yeah, shouldn't have done that. He's 14 and kids run was 11 max. He was about 3 heads taller than everyone. He was supposed to just run with gf's daughter but he got bored and put on the afterburners. Thank Christ he left it too late and came in 4th. So farking embarassing. Shameful, but at least we got another medal. No shirts though. Had to pay for them. Bastards.

    Swimming this morning which was perfect for sore legs. Not a particular hard session either so good start to week.



  • 46min! That is a decent clip bro!! Swimming aye! 🤔🤔

    I was really unsure how it would go, but clearly anaerobic swimming training gives me pretty decent aerobic fitness. Wish I'd pushed harder or had one of those pace setter dudes with the balloon attached. Really wish I was into swimming as a youngster.

    Changing things up a bit with chest and biceps today. Normally do this on Thursday but I'm finding energy levels are significantly lower by then and I'm not smashing it or enjoying it as much as I should. Felt good today so hopefully it will do the trick going forward.
