flip turn practice - i need a 100 flip turns for time wod or something. I just don't have my timing down on these yet sometimes I completely miss the wall sometimes I don't get enough of the wall to get a good push and sometimes they are nice. One thing they are not is consistent. I would just like my fellow swimmers to know I am actually doing laps and not some kind of water dancing.

how i actually got faster as the rest go shorter I have no idea. so thankful to coach jay for turning me onto the tegaderm. My hand was burning really bad in the pool or any kind of water yesterday and is now feeling much better :) now merely a flesh wound.

Thrusters - never did these as a strength exercise before only did them in a wod for metcon. So I wasn't exactly sure where to start or where I should be with the weight so I started light and just kept working til failure.

45 x5
85x2 - failed on 3rd rep twice

  1. I'm not very good at flip turns either - I throw them in once in a while, but generally don't work on them - just do touch turns. I haven't done any pool triathlons so I don't really consider them important.

    Thrusters hurt.
