Wednesday Dec 17th 2008

yesterday I wrote "Tomorrow I'm going to do a fast 50 free in practice while wearing 3 or 4 suits
We'll see what happens."
Today I tested this.

WEIGHTS
lat press 8 x 35 8 x 40 8 x 45 8 x 50
lat pull 8 x 167 6 x 197 5 x 207
bench press 8 x 135 5 x 185 5 x 185
leg press 8 x 180 8 x 270 (took it easy sore thighs)

Today's Practice
6:00 pm - 8:30
whitney coached swim center SCY diving well
swam with chris, larry and nate
beside tyler and brad
dove in around 6:08

warm up
150 easy

4 x 25 fr on 30
4 x 50 k on 1:00 desc
4 x 100 fr on 1:30 desc
300 easy

4 x 25 bk on 30
4 x 50 k on 1:00 desc
4 x 100 fr on 1:30 desc
300 easy

4 x 25 fr on 30
4 x 50 k on 1:00 desc
4 x 100 fr on 1:30 desc
300 easy

got out changed into FS PRO legs and 3 blue seventy suits
after they were on I felt like the michelin man
3 suits squeeze down pretty tight legs felt very restricted
felt pressure on my ribs after being zipped in
it was hard to bend over

50 SCY fast
whitney timed
went 22.3
definitely felt more float
legs felt restricted,
think wearing that many suits weakened my kick
hard to turn couldn't ball up as much
don't think wearing 3 B70's provided me with much advantage

100 easy

removed 2 suits

still had on a blue seventy over FS PRO LEGS

50 SCY fast
whitney timed
went 21.6

50 easy

As I thought Ande. Too many suits, too much compression and it is going to restrict your movement. Perhaps 2 is the ideal combination then? 21.6 is pretty fast.
