Winter Weight

I've put on some weight this winter, and I'm planning to keep it on until winter subsides. According to Punxsutawney Phil, winter is in effect until at least March 16 (that's right HOG stay in your HOLE!). This gives me two more weekends, including this weekend's Oscar extravaganza, to blissfully continue feeling plump. I have to say, it's helping my swimming. Do NOT underestimate the bag of TJ's sweet potato fries paired with hefeweizen and followed by chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream as an effective carbo load. It kicks in right about 20 minutes into the workout. That stuff wants - begs - to be worked off, and damn if it doesn't help me along.

*warmup: 4 x 200's. 1 all free; 1 175 free, 25 fly; 1 150 free, 50 fly; 1 125 free, 75 fly

add fins for:
*2 x 50's moderate kick
*2 x 50's build flutter
*2 x 50's build dolphin
*2 x 50's build flutter
*2 x 50's build dolphin

remove fins, add pull gear for:
*10 x 100's free on the 1:25

remove all gear for:
*100 fast free followed by easy 50
repeat 4x
*50 fast fly followed by easy 50
repeat 4x

Yeah, that's what these extra pounds are: winter weight. At least it's not just me. Glad to know I've got another week before I get serious about losing it!
