After completing 20.3 (heavy deadlift) and 20.4 (heavy clean and jerks) my lower back was super tight. I have been using my TENS unit and rolling it, but it isn’t loosening up. I decided to skip CrossFit this week until Friday’s Open workout. So I decided to kick off my Ironman 70.3 training with a swim today. I went to New Hope and was the only one in the pool when I got there. I ended up with a total of 700m in the pool.
I started with 50’s bilaterally breathing, did some 100’s and used the kick board and pull buoy. I finished out with some 50’s. I was in the water for about 25 minutes. It all felt pretty good, I was taking it nice and easy!
I ended with sitting in the hot tub which felt really good on my back!
