I will not make a New Years resolution at all. I will however say I am calling it now. My numbers will go up and my results will follow :)

New favorite swim workout this morning

Over on ST they were talking about a 100x100 swim workout today. I figured what the hell? I would never do 100x100 so i scaled it back to the goal of 50x50. Here is what actually happened....

10 x 100 @ 1:15 with 15 seconds rest between
5 x 100 @ 1:15 with 30 seconds rest between
6 x 100 @1:30 with a minute rest between.

All in all it killed me. As I was attempting to get out of the pool, I smashed my shin on the edge. I was so dead getting out of the water that I didn't even react. I am going to have one good bruise. I figured that only 100 yards at a time would be "easy" wow was I wrong. It shows my lack of speed/endurance. I will be doing this workout every other week to build this up to doing the full set of 50x100 at a respectable pace.

I played guitar with Slash formerly of Guns and Roses!!

One hell of a week I must say! Thursday night I got to play guitar with Slash of Guns and Roses (Velvet Revolver now). It was almost a dream come true. I really wanted to hang with him but he really is a better guitarist than I thought. Trading chords back and forth until I just got blown away. I will have to work out a few problems before I jam again.

Earlier this week I ended up getting a Cortizone shot in my strumming hand shoulder. I bit too much playing!
