I think I have my training in order now. I've had to move things around to accomodate swimming and pushups. Yoga won't be happening as much this month.
Today I returned to the pool in the early morning (6:30am) for another short swim (800yds). I focussed on form and counted strokes. I was swimming with purpose.
From there, I drove to the fitness center at work. I started off with my rope crunches and ab rolls and some stretches. Then I had someone that I trust check my form on modified pushups. When I was satisfied that I was doing them correctly, I picked up W2, D2 of the first column from the One Hundred Pushups program. I actually have this all laid out in a different format in excel for my tracking purposes. Each row is a day (they use columns). I will use this to guide my pushup training in the short term and mark off each row as I complete it. .
I may only do two rows per week, but that's okay. Also, if I get stuck, I won't advance. If I get really stuck, I'll modify the plan. I don't know how far I'll get, but whatever happens, this should be decent pushup training for the event
Oh yeah, and I'm heading out the door soon to meet the running group for a 4mile run. [EDIT - done! 4 miles @10:42 pace]
Then tomorrow is strength day at the gym in the morning and rest in the afternoon.Now that I have my training figured out, it's time to focus on the upcoming trip. More hints in next post!!
