    Swam w/ Dave. Other Dave is sick. Wore my Nike jammer. Pool temp back around 85. Pushed hard at times today but was careful not to end up like yesterday. Seemed to do fine. IMs felt good.

    Comments
    Very proud of my performance on the main set (12 x 100 @ 1:20 (SCM)). Opened with 1:12, then 1:14, then 8 x 1:15, then 1:14, then 1:13. Felt good for the first 5; a bit rough for the next 4; then good again for the last 3. This set gave me some much-needed confidence. My goal now is to hold a 1:10 - 1:12 pace...

  5. FAST FRI Feb 16th, 2012, SCY

    FAST FRI Feb 16th, 2012, SCY

    Today at 11:00 am, is the appointment to get my lower right molar removed that got the root canal 2 weeks ago. I believe it's #31. It's the tooth that got a root canal only to discover it's cracked at the base & needs to go. Fortunately it hasn't hurt since the root canal. I first set my appointment for Wednesday then moved it to Friday so I could swim a few more practices & miss less work since this coming Monday is Presidents day & an observed holiday at my work.
    But I was instructed to not eat or drink since Midnight last night

    The surgical wound on my forearm is completely healed and barely noticeable, looks like a small cat scratch that healed.

    Today's practice.

    ===============================

    BONUS BONUS!!!!

    My first every swim video from when I was 8 years old, swimming a 50 Free, 25 Breast, 25 Fly in a practice setting. This was one of the first camcorders that someone on our team got, and they videoed all the swimmers to make tapes for those who wanted them. I'm glad I have this, it's fun to watch:

    by , February 16th, 2012 at 05:24 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Drylands, 90 min:

    scapular/RC/elbow/ankle exercises
    flutter kicks on back on bosu, 2 x 100
    captains chair leg raises, 2 x 30, boom
    extreme angle step ups with BB, 30 x 3 x 10
    good mornings, 80 x 4 x 8
    leg abductors, 140 x 4 x 6
    explosive leg press, 270 x 4 x 12
    extreme angle squats with kettle balls and stacked steps (feet are elevated on the steps), 40 x 4 x 12 -- I like this one.
    seated rows negatives, very light, 50 x 2 x 15
    wide grip lat pulldowns, very light, 50 x 3 x 20
    altitude drops, 2 x 10

    Bike, 30 minutes

    Stretching, 30 minutes

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Took yesterday off because, predictably, I was done in by the mega sprints + deep tissue. Had a productive day at the gym -- especially by lazy sprinter standards -- as a result. Broke down and did some very lights rows and pulldowns. (Shoulder and back pain is worse than elbow pain.) Tomorrow, I'm swimming with Speedo. But given his new "main sets" I may have to show up an hour early.

    Thu Feb 16, 2012 Update

    Miraculously my dad was released from Plano Med Center on Monday. He's doing much better. (below is the whole story)

    Swam:

    Mon noon

    Tue AM

    Wed AM &

    Today

    main set was dropdowns start at 2:00
    drop 2 sec each repeat to 1:00
    we took a break at 1:30
    I sucked on it, hurting, I've missed a lot of work outs between my surgery and family stuff. It's time to shift to strength and sprinting. started out with 150's and switched to 125's, 100's, & 75's sooner than I usually do, couldn't keep up with my lane. Todd, Jim, & Tenneille



    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Thu Feb 9th, 2012 Bob, my father drove from Austin to Denison, TX to visit my sister Elise, who had a 6 hour surgery. Dad recently changed meds and seemed more forgetful that week. They went to dinner with my sister then returned to their hotel. In the hotel room dad said his forearms and hands hurt then he fainted. Mom called 911 & an ambulance came & took him to Denison hospital. They thought he had a stroke. My brother called me at midnight to let me know what had happened


    Denison is a small town & doesn’t have a neurologist, so they transferred dad by ambulance to the Plano Medical Center Neuroscience ICU. Robby, my brother spent the night with dad & dad was very out of it, conscious but incoherent and had a seizure. Super scary. I arrived Friday afternoon and visited with dad for a few minutes. Dad looked puffy & red and wasn’t making much sense. His nurses took him from ICU to radiology to do an angiogram & MRI his brain. Mom, Elise & I waited in the waiting room for an hr & 15 minutes. His radiologist brought us back and said he had a small bleed in his subarachnoid brain layer but he couldn’t see the cause. He said 85% of the time they can see the cause of a brain bleed usually an aneurism and half of those patients die within 30 days. 15% of the time docs can’t see a cause and those patients tend to do much better. Dad fell in the 15% which is great. His doc said they needed to keep him there for a week. Later in the early evening my wife & son arrived.

    Dr Murray, dad’s neurologist at Plano said:

    + brain bleed symptoms are often similar to stroke symptoms.

    + Dad would probably need rehab & might not be able to drive.

    + Dad was prescribed to and takes 13 diff scripts, (including blood thinners) They took him off everything & only gave him what they deemed essential to treating his neurological issues & critical health issues. they added a med to dilate his veins & arteries & an anti-seizure meds.

    + He thought dad might have had the brain bleed from hitting his head along with taking a couple blood thinners, but weren’t sure.

    + Dad recently changed some scripts and started taking a blood thinner med called Pradaxa, which doesn’t have a way to counter its effects unlike Coumadin which can be neutralized with Vitamin K.

    Later Friday evening dad seemed much better, much more coherent, he spoke in sensible sentences.
    We stayed with him as long as we could but ICU visiting hrs were 8am – 6pm & 8pm – 10pm

    Saturday morning dad seemed more coherent, his doc transferred him from ICU to the floor but were still saying he’d need to be there a week. He improved rather rapidly. He slept a lot. But was in good spirits.

    Sunday he showered himself and was able to use the bathroom on his own. Doc started saying they might release him on Monday.
    Lisabeth was going to stay and do shifts with my mom but mom said he had it covered.

    Monday his doc released him and mom drove him home from Dallas. Dad’s doing awesome now and wants to get his life back to speed but needs to relax & take it easy. He's going to get an Austin neurologist, make a complete list of all his meds, hopefully get them checked and dispensed by one pharmacy.

    It was a very scary episode. It gave us some valuable lessons and a list of things to do going forward

    Small turnout at practice. Only three of us did this workout and all of us had different intervals. I didn't mind and it allowed me to concentrate on what I was doing. Enough rest for me to try and build my fly endurance and swim fast when I was suppose to. The IM's with fins were actually kind of fun especially at about 80%.

    We had our state meet this past weekend and now everyone is getting ready for Greensboro.

    Swam w/ Dave and Roger. Wore my Nike jammer. Pool temp 84-85. Crashed and burned today on the last 400. I helplessly watched Dave and Roger cruise off on a 4:40 while I limped in at 5:05. Had a nasty sick feeling in my stomach the whole way. Not like I was going to thow up. More like my body was just shutting down. Took everything I had to just keep swimming.

    Well, I had a day trip over to Seattle Children's hospital today with the whole family. Just a followup appointment with my son's neurologist to go over the past/present/future with his seizure condition. Lots of good information.
    We also got my wife's passport renewed while in Seattle. She is a citizen of El Salvador, and they have just recently opened up a location in Seattle to process documents for their country, and to assist people with getting proper documentation for the United States. Don't worry, my wife is good to go with everything. She'll be doing here citizenship exam soon.

    Well, we got home just in time for me to race over to the pool for the last 30 minutes of lap swim. I didn't want to go without getting wet today!

    Warmup/Main/

    6 x 100 Free @ 1:20 (held 1:08-1:11s)

    4 x 200 Free Pull @ 2:30 (2:14-2:20s)

    100 EZ swim

    rested for a bit to get ready for:

    100 Fly AFAP from a push.
    Went a 1:01, felt good doing it too.
    Not bad considering I had just come from 3+ hours sitting in a car as well.

    * Went to play basketball today and whenever I went to shoot the ball my right arm felt light jelly. I mean there was just no strength whatsoever in that arm to shoot with. I couldn't believe it - this has never happened to me before.

    * MRI is tomorrow - if it comes up negative I will be extremely surprised.

    * Starting to up the yars today - slightly. Also starting to swim with the fins less. here is the workout:

    Hooray, another workout day!
    SCM, Baylor Fitness Center
    Jim Montgomery coached

    300 warm up

    12 x 50 on 1:00
    2 kick; 1 swim

    4 x 250 on last person +
    Suppose to be by 50's:
    free/stroke/free/stroke/free

    I don't think anyone did those. Either entirely swim free, or pull free.

    ==>me?
    2 x 250 kick with Speedo fins
    back/sides/back/sides back;
    sides/back/sides/back/sides
    3 x 50's to each of the last 2 x 250
    TYR burner fins + snorkel
    tummy arms by sides

    4 x 100 pull on ???
    1, 3 100 tummy kick Tyr fins + snorkel free kick
    2, 4 50 s/a/a fly kick
    with flip turns. working on my big blowout breath!

    300 easy kick - no fins, mix

    14 x 25's fast on :30 easy on 1:00
    4 fast
    1 easy
    3 fast
    1 easy
    2 fast
    1 easy
    1 fast
    1 easy
    ==> Kick no fins board or on back
    Fastest was on :20. I haven't broken 20 yet with a board.

    2 x Dives

    easy swims

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Virtually an entire kick day. I tried to mix up sides/back/tummy. The lanes worked out so that it was a good opportunity for me to kick to the swim intervals, staying in my regular lane. I'd like to build up to kicking swim pace with the TYR fins, and then challenge myself one day on swim pace with no fins. But for now, i'm comfortably making pace with the Speedo medium fins. The TYRs will take some time and be a challenge.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    DAMM SCY meet and Republic of Texas World Masters Championships!

    https://www.clubassistant.com/club/m...=991&smid=3345

    For the sanctioned meet on Saturday, I will probably enter the 100 free, 50 free, 200 free, 100 fly, and 100 IM. I'll most likely swim the 100 free only.

    For the Republic of Texas swim meet, I will enter all the events. I will probably swim them all.

    Here is the entry for the South Central Zone Meet:

    https://www.clubassistant.com/club/m...=991&smid=3671

    Not sure what I will enter. Probably a bunch of events. I might swim the events based on who else is swimming them. Why waste an opportunity when you have at least 2 fast girls to race.
