One more workout with this pull buoy (tomorrow–long course. It should be fun.), and I’ll be reintroducing kicking again. Never did I ever think I’d say I’d miss kicking. LOL I have. We’ll see how it goes, though, when kicking is once again a reality. It was really a mixed bag today, but a challenging workout. Although I haven’t mentioned this before, I’m still unsure how people who regularly use a pull buoy manage to keep them from migrating down to their knees on longer sets. Usually, by the time I hit about 300, the pull buoy is inching its way down toward the knees until by the last 100 of the 500, only my knees keeping it from escaping entirely. LOL So, if anyone has any tips, I’d greatly appreciate it. While I plan to go back to kicking, after this experience, there’s a good possibility I’ll be mixing in pull sets more frequently than I have in the past. (Grin)

You know what to do.
