Monday September 17, 2012

Definitely beginning to see some progress with the elbow as a result of my rehab program which includes, in no particular order, stretching, ice, eccentric contraction exercises, something called the Reverse Tyler Twist using a Thera-band flex bar, and tendon massage.  I have avoided paddles and have lifted only light weights. 

This is my last week training on my own; next week I plan to swim at UT.  This afternoon I swam in the outdoor 25 meter pool at Life Time.  I wanted to swim some faster repeats today so I backed off on the interval for the main set.

400 swim, 300 pull, 200 kick, 100 swim
Transition set:
8 x 50, two each @ 1:00, :55, :50, :45
Main set:
10 x 150 @ 2:45, averaged 1:59 which is at 1500 race pace
200 pull easy

3100 meters

Only felt a slight twinge in the elbow today.
