Injection Day number two…always eventful

Injection Day number two converged with Monsoon day in Florida. Seriously, one of our hospital had to activate the “weather event” code.  I’ve only seen this done once, when a hospital I worked at was snowed in and no delivery supply trucks or staff could get in or out. So I drove to work, all …

WTF moment

I’m currently living in Limbo. Not as much fun as the limbo at a party. I’m waiting to hear if our trip to Nigeria is a go or a “no”.   I’m at a point where I don’t care either way but I don’t particularly want to waste a lot of time getting the one …

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 (not really) build week.

Well, last build week until the next build week.   Whoa.  I am tired. I slept like a crazy person last night.  Got up and went to the pool.  Swam a bit over a mile.  The pool was pretty great.  It was a nice temperature, and I just felt like I was gliding through the …

Time Trial Friday

I’m rarely asked to do a time trial by my coach, so I was a bit surprised to see it on the plan, but, it occasionally happens. So today was a 1500 time trial in the pool.  Sadly in the morning, I realized there was also a 2 mile run.   2 miles is not …

Monday.

It took forever for me to get my training email on Sunday.  Either my coach was cave diving and got home late, or he was having trouble deciding what to give me.  He is kind funny as he admits he only has a very basic miles plan and wings it every week based on my …

Silent Saturday

I never heard this term as a child for the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. At any rate, it’s kind of a good term.  On this day it is said that Jesus Christ “rested’ in the tomb…or alternatively, descended into hell for the redemption of all those who not  condemned who had died …

Friday in the bag

Well Friday’s work out was really simple.  2000 swimming meters.  And  a weights workout. Sooo.  The swim got done.  It was slow and I didn’t love it.  My Friday at work was amazingly intense.  It was not necessarily bad, but it was intense. The morning was ok and then all of a sudden in the …

Just keep swimming.

The weather today did not cooperate with the actual forecast, or with my workout.   This is a painting by a group of artists known as “The Florida Highwaymen” Click for more info…pretty cool bunch of dudes, and one lady. On the workout was 3000 yards or meters swimming.  The weather outside looked like the …

Messed up Tuesday

I couldn’t get out of bed this morning.  I could not sleep last night.  My sports massage has a pattern.  Post massage my knees and other joints hurt.  I should have taken motrin but I was being stubborn and thinking if I just slept it would improve. I just couldn’t sleep though because things were …
