Just tried to proove that I could still swim. Did some easy long swimming and some drills. Ran out of time.

Felt pretty good...Lots of concentrating...I think my stroke count is 47...I'm sure I'm counting wrong!

Well, I haven't seen this side of Crack 'o Stupid for a while. Had a bit of a fitful sleep and kept waking up. I apparently tried to punch myself sometime last night while First Wife was reading. I find this very unusual 'cuz I've never really gone for punch...not terribly hygienic with every everyone serving themselves...ick.

I'm really starting to miss running. It has been 4 days. I think I'm in withdrawal. I may try a slow one tonight with First Wife (if she doesn't punch me). I did some powerwalking in my big boy, dress-up shoes yesterday as I followed some school children and politicians around the block photographing them as they did their physical fitness thing. I think I gave myself shin splints! I am such a loser.

Drills Drills Drills...lots of water swallowing and listening to Pat talk about a certain CFL celebrity's butt (he was aquajogging in the training tank).

This morning I did a big fat nothing! Just because I could...I'm still not running, although I might give a nice gentle walk run a chance tomorrow (if I can convince first wife to sweat with me).

I also took the opportunity to sleep in. The soccer mom thing/combined with night time Board meetings is really wearing me out. Tonight kid one and kid two and friend of kid two have to be taken to two different places each. In one case there is a 10 minute turnaround. Good thing this place is small and manageable. The second bonus is that both offspring are doing sports (track and syncro) and music...so, we are doing healthy lifestyle here.

What's first wife doing? Well, I'm proud to say she's got fitness of her own, even though it is dancercise. She is also coaching volleyball and taking a teacher course too....wait a minute, who's beautiful wife is this?

 

What am I doing? Masters' swimming at lunch. This morning I have a gig at a school that will host the Lieutenant Governor and the many Ministers who are about to call an election...I better take some Purell to sanitize my hand afterwards.

Okay I'm now swimming on my side and doing a whole bunch of fancy stuff like "breaching" my hips...My breathing still sucks, even when it blows, but I'm getting there. Jason is breaking me down and I'm slowly becoming the dog paddler I've always wanted to be.

Woke up to a darker than normal house. Major Powerfailure...Then when the power came back on, the tv turned on and I had to scramble to turn it off.

Threw me off a bit...Felt very sluggish this morning...Tendon still tender. Not very verbowe - me or the tendon.

Good swim in Masters class. I am starting to feel faster and sleeker...problem is I can't get my breathing right and I can't count while I swim, so I have no idea if I am really getting better of just feel more confident.
Jason will tell me tomorrow in my one on one.

Strength
  • 1h 00m

Core strength and arms and other odd things with Matt. Amber was away.

I think the class is called Bend and pull, or bend and relax, or something.

Not a bad class, easy after Brendan's

tendon on inside of right knee still "sharp pain" sore. Stretched a bit on the rollers. And iced it.

Now I face another week. Last week I elbowed it, and the week before I toed it, so using my face is somewhat appropriate at this point.

Back to core work this morning. I'm still sore from Brendan and running with crazy John. I have an unknown this morning, Amber is away. This is followed by swimming at lunch.

I have a new pain in a previously unfelt tendon beside my knee. I iced it all of yesterday. We'll see what pleasure it brings me today.

Glorious morning.

After a lengthy discussion, not all of which I found agreeable,  I have decided to limit my online time...My regrets to the many who visit.

This too shall pass.

White Butte off road with John and Pat.
First time on Cyclocross in years! They were on MTB, I felt so strong and fast on cyclocross - even though it had a fender and rack. Skinny wheels were a little difficult in the deep sand. Great ride, had a lot of fun, much more fun than being on the highway, which is what I was planning. Some good, high intensity hill climbing...I'll do this again!

One of those days I just can't get organized.

I got a new cell phone yesterday and it took me three hours to get all my numbers and stuff into it...who would have thunk 4 numbers would take so long...maybe I should have used a sharper pencil. It is a really fancy one, so it scares me a little. It has a bigger brain than me.

I also had some Ethiopian food again yesterday. mmmmmm. Babyfood never tasted so good (it is actually amazing, it is the consistency and texture that takes some getting used to Ga ga!)

Today I might do something I haven't done in a very long tiime. No, I did that yesterday, I still have the window open...whew!

I might take my ol' trusted cyclocross bike out and pretend it is a mountain bike. If you don't hear from me again, I'll be lost in a butte somewhere...or perhaps had my computing privileges revoked.

If I thought my arms were sore this morning....More interesting work with Jason and the Masters' class. Pat kept grabbing my ankle and John kept splashing my sensitive face...It's like grade school all over again. Still struggling with my breathing now that Jason has forced me to change it. I am getting stronger and if I can get my breathing right, I know I can just sail through that water...It'll come!

Strength
  • 1h 00m

Killer workout with Brendan. Lots of wacko arm stuff...skipping, tricep pulls, boxing...medicine ball throws. I can't feel my arms. Perfect for the swim at lunch.
I felt strong though!

Sport
  • Stretching
  • 15m

Focused on trying to stretch out the pain from my achilles tendons on the rollers. There were some serious lumps in there!

I am somewhat upset to be awake. I was nurturing this delicious dream about a French teacher of mine who was giving me a one-on-one lesson in conjugation of irrational verbs....sadly, needs must and I had to rise out of bed.
