Infraspinatus? Is That Anything Like A Empanada?

Last night while lying in bed I started to get twitches or muscle spasms.  I was just lying trying to get some shut eye when it started.  I streched whie sitting up in bed and rolled my shoulders.  Finally it stopped and I went to bed.  This morning when I was at the pool warming up I could feel the area that was twitching starting to feel a bit tight.  After swimming it felt okay but I didn't want to push it.  So I swam the basic 1 hour workout and got out.  No need to kill myself, at least not today.  When I got home I had to look it up to see which muscle it was and I'm guessing it was the Infraspinatus.  Yeah, I never heard of it either.  According to wikipedia the Infrasinatus is -


In human anatomy, the infraspinatus muscle is a thick triangular muscle, which occupies the chief part of the infraspinatous fossa.[1] As one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff, the main function of the infraspinatus is to laterally rotate the arm, and stabilise the shoulder joint.

I don't know if I'm guessing correct but at least I learned something new today.  As for empanada, well I'm just hungry!

Warm Up

300 Swim / 100 Pull / 50 Catch Up Drill / 50 Swim (500)

5x100's on 2:20 3 Kick / 2 Kick/Swim (500/1000)

10x100's on 2 Minutes.  1-5 IM Descending / rest 30 seconds / 6-10 Back Descending BUT starting at the pace of the third one previously.  So I did a 1:20 for my third IM so I had to start my backstroke descend from 1:20.  The other two swimmers did this freestyle in my group while the two other swimmers did set sof 4x100's at an easier interval.  I finished my IM descend on a 1:13 and my back on a 1:12.  I'm okay with that.  Not earth shattering fast but okay.  (1000/2000)

I warmed down a 100.  I actually was going to swim a bit more but I had to pee.  And since I have to walk all the way to the restroom I can't be bothered coming back.  So I got out.  Let my infraspinatus rest.  Since today is my 4th day in a row swimming I plan to take tomorrow as a recovery day.  Wahoo, sleep in!
