Okay, I'll admit it, it wasn't that bad. I especially like the part where you have to pull down your pants if you don't hit it past the woman's tee.

I decided to do some community charity today. Trisportnick's race report is here!

Careful! It is very sticky.


Got up to ride my bike. Decided I needed more sleep. Crawled back into the arms of the one I love, albeit limp, lifeless, dead to the world, sleeping arms.


I've lost my baby fat that I gained after Chinook last weekend and I'm back to a fighting weight.

bike commute in to work. Beautiful morning.
My calves are hurting. I think I need more water.

Now that is some recovery run.
Felt sluggish and slow, but picked up in the second half!

Found somebody's cards. Stashed them on the way out and then carried them back. Very distracting. I'm going to do the right thing and call him. He looks like a bad@ss in his picture!

OWS at Regina Beach in Nick's Wetsuit.
Nick wasn't in it at the time.
I have to get a new suit. Mine is too baggy.

Swim was gorgeous.
More or less continuous. Total swim time (not farting around was more like 20 minutes. I didn't time it.

Went alone - the person that was supposed to go with me bailed.
I guess doing and OWS alone must mean I'm becoming hardcore!

Karma update.

I returned the lost identity, health, birth certificate and other cards to a very nice (bad@ss-looking) gentleman. It seems someone stole his wallet the night before. A number of credit cards were gone. He was on his cell phone canceling cards when I called his wife. That's four cards he won't have to hassle with.

Karma karma karma chameleon!


There's that stupified, other worldiness-like feeling you get from greeting the crack-of-stupid that I have missed!

Some Chinook pictures are up, by the way.

Recovery swim.
Man was I tired. Felt efficient. Not fast or strong, but efficient. Like my body was an effective vessel.
Shoulders a little sore, calves close to cramping.

  • 1h 00m

Someone had to do it!

Had a late night.

Tried to fire up the engine for an easy run this morning, but the glow plug just wouldn't ignite.

That's okay, It's not like I have another HIM in less than 3 weeks or anything.

But I am recovering nicely.

Recovery ride. Had to hold back, I could have gone much further, faster.
Tight muscles feel better.



Okay. I'm back. Work or BT.... what a dilemma...I promise I'll have stuff up soon. Thanks for your inspires!
