Year 2 Dive Log

You may check out my freediving collections HERE.

I missed out my 1st year dive log. Thanks to my mentor Walter i decided to have a record on my trainings + PB in any apnea.

21/12/15:
Co2: 6 sets of 1 minutes (3 breath up before every dive)
Feeling: Felt damn good, meditation app helps a lot to keep me calm
Dynamic: No Fins, still focus on push off & turns. Slow recovery for sprained right ankle since 2 weeks ago.

23/12/15:
No Warm-Up Static: 2 M 37 S (3 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 15 S, hold for 1 M 22 S
Feeling: The Urge to Breath is Crazy!
Dynamic: No Fins, only managed to do 2 sets of 18M. Still wondering how I manage to achieved 53M during competition.

25/12/15:
No Warm-Up Static: 2 M 37 S (3M breath up before dive)
Feeling: Still need to get over the urge to breath when you got only that 1 chance to do it!
Co2: 1 set of 1 minutes (3 breath up before dive)
Feeling: Annoyed as unable to finish 2nd set due to tiredness or should I say lazy body on Christmas morning. Happy for Walter’s No Warm-Up Static 6M20S & Radziah’s DYN 107M.

30/12/15:
No Warm-Up Static: 3 M 21 S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 21S, hold for 2 M
Feeling: It was great. I felt I might not be ready so I increase my breath up time. No urge to breath no singing, just giving myself more instructions. It was rare but I got so excited (haven’t done 2 M contraction since last year & struggle to even get 3 M static after Pool Master) with 2 M contractions that I came up with my legs still float in relax mode. It was a good experiment, should I say I’m back on track?
Dynamic: No Fins, only managed to do 2 sets of 13M after a few sets of short distance turn & push off. Failed to complete 3rd set.

4/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: 2 M 03 S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 5 S, hold for 1 M 58 S
Feeling: Didn’t have a good final breath before dive. Just need to work extra hard on consistency. Walter did great with 6 M 36 S today :D
Co2: 7 sets of 1 minutes (3 breath up before every dive)
Feeling: Felt great, the only reason I didn’t continue is due to abs pain. Guess I’m starting to do it right. Can’t wait to reach my 1st 10 sets of 1 Minutes.

6/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: 3 M 38 S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 28 S, hold for 2 M 10 S
Feeling: I’m back baby! Just hope for consistency like a year ago. Next target 4 M (PB) before trying out another new skills

 
BP
8/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: 3 M 17 S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 17 S, hold for 2 M
Feeling: Feeling good with float breath up a minute before official top, too bad mother nature calls :/

11/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: Failed
Co2: Failed
Feeling: Whole body was aching like mad even when I barely work any results :(

18/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: 3 M 11S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 7 S, hold for 2 M 4 S
Feeling: Contraction comes early but I guess I’m getting more comfortable with minimum 2 Minutes contraction. Too bad need to cut it short as mother nature calls again ROAR

25/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: 3 M 17S (5 M breath up before dive)
Process: 1st contraction @ 1 M 15 S, hold for 2 M 2 S
Feeling: Trying to be consistant with minimum 2 Minutes contraction. As usual I have to cut it short thanks to the hot sun & mother nature. Being lazy due to tiredness from shows for the past few days.

27/1/16:
No Warm-Up Static: Below 2 M 30S (5 M breath up before dive)
Dynamic: No Fins, 12 x 18 M

P/S: Working hard for a better results in my next competition
