Day 6 of build….Soul sucking….

Build day 2

Oh wow. This was 3600 yards since the pool was set up for yards.  In the end it might have been 3700 or so because one of my sets was RIDICULOUSLY long compared to the rest so I suspect I counted the same lap a few times over. I got to the pool at 0540 …

Last week, I started to understand suffering, and suffering well… Looks like this week will be more lessons in suffering. Here’s Carrie Cheadle…teaching me..   Gonna make sure …

Bob the Builder.

This was a tough week. Well, that would be the goal.  In addition to this goal, is a big lesson…. Trusting in the unseen. Heb 11:1 Now faith means that we are confident of what we hope for, convinced of what we do not see. This is something that I rather struggle with.  I’ve had …

MG the Builder….

So… I’ve lived through the first 2 days of the 17 mile aftermath..Started the first of 3 very tough weeks called build weeks. On Monday I swam a little bit, and I do mean a tiny little bit…took 21 mins. I am now doing flip turns all the time, not for the “coolness” of it..if …
