My back pain has moved to the side so that its now my right hip. Weird. Still not normal, but about 90%. Today's workout was extended beyond my planned 4000 cause I was expecting the worst, and ended up doing more:
1000 - 1000 free warmup
2000 - 4,3,2,1 free descending and then back up ascending
1000 - 5 x 200's free pull on 3:00
1500 - 5 x (150 free, 100 IM, 50 kick)
I did open turns on everything today, until I got to the last set, then I did flip turns. It felt good to get a good stretch on my hip as I extended my arm to the wall on the right side. I sure hope this issue goes away very soon! I'm eager to get back into my 7000 - 8000 yard per day plan to get the Lake Huron challenge going at a faster pace!
