Surf Mavericks: Update 2

At this point of the season, Mavericks seems a long way off. It isn’t breaking and likely won’t be for a while. Nonetheless, if I want to be prepared for next season, I have to stay focused now.

I had an MRI on my left shoulder and thankfully nothing is torn. I’m glad there are people that study this sort of thing, because when I look at the picture below I can’t tell what is going on. Heck, it took me a few seconds to even tell what perspective I was looking from. I’m on a regular PT routine now to get the shoulder back to 100% so that I can train without re-injuring it.

On the breath holding side of things, I am making some progress. I set a new personal record of 2:39. I wasn’t planning on graphing out my progress here, but at the bequest of a co-worker who was disappointed that Mr. Data wasn’t making a graph – I was convinced otherwise.

Here is how I’m doing:

Hopefully the diminishing returns on training are still a ways off, I’d like to get close to 4 minutes before it starts getting hard to add seconds. Fun fact – the world record for breath holding is over 22 minutes.
