The question is: will this make me faster?

P90X Legs and Back. My weights were missing last week, but I have found them. Some of the harder moves I have to do without weights, or not do the full set. My legs are much weaker than they were the last time I went through this. But I did know that already, and this is just confirmation that strength work is exactly what I need.

Sunday - February 9

Bike
  • 1h 00m
  • 18.00 miles
  • 18.00 Mi/hr

An hour on the trainer while playing AC 3. I'm probably not working as hard as I could, but at least I'm doing something. Playing Xbox while riding helps make the time go by so much faster.

P90X Legs and Back - cut out a few of the pull ups exercises because I mostly wanted to focus on my legs. I need to work on my leg strength at least once or twice a week to regain the muscle mass that I have lost over the past year.

I have a new focus for my swim drills. I think I finally know what "high elbow" means. All of my drills were done with that in mind. Maybe I should invest in some lessons to have someone watch and critique my form.
