2 Swims Down 7 More To I Drown Quick Post Work Swim Workout

If I Haven't Started To Work Out Is It Too Early To Start A Taper? Chest Day and Maybe A Swim Day?

I thought I was doing everything right last night before bed but it took me a bit to fall asleep and I must of had a wild night.  This morning my sheets including my fitted sheet and my pillow top was pulled off the bed to one side.   I must have been thrashing again.  Ugh.  Once up I felt a bit groggier then normal.  But I got my act together and headed to gym.

Today was Chest, Shoulders and Triceps.

Once I go to the BB Chest Press my body woke up.  Today was all about just getting as much movements done in about an hour.  Don't need to kill myself just another progressive overload workout.  I picked DB Press vs BB Press as I plan on swimming after work tonight and don't need to kill my shoulders.  While doing the bench work I did really feel my abs aching from Saturday, still.  I had a hard time just laying back down.  I know I need to work on core but jeez.  

After the gym it was a foggy drive home to do a 10 minute Low Impact Ride.  I have a 30 minute sprint fly focused swim planned for tonight so cardio on the bike isn't so important right now.  It's just more movement.  As for the swim hopefully I wont work late tonight.  I'm aiming to leave a 5pm and get in the pool by 5:30pm.

Three Weeks to Senior Games!  Today is the last day for entering so I should have the final roster to build the Psych Sheets in the next few days.  My goal in the next two weeks is three swim workouts a week.  The weekend before I'll be at Disney for the Run Disney Springtime Surprise Pixar Monsteer's 10K.  I'm driving down Friday, running on Saturday and returning Sunday afternoon.  Some would call that a taper but since I'm not really in shape it's not a taper.
