The question is: will this make me faster?

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.

Back to square one with swimming. I did get a helpful tip on arm position from a person who was watching and coaching her son, so that was nice.

February is here, so it's time to get to work. No excuses now. I'm not sick, I'm not injured, I have no vacations for a while, and I need to lose some weight again. I'm back up to 187, and I want to get down to 175. Ideally, I'd be down to 170, but I haven't weight that little since junior year of HS, when I could dunk a basketball, run a 2:00 half mile, and had about 3% body fat...so my 170 now would still have some muscle weight redistributed as fat weight. We'll go for 175 for now.
