Mar 24: Day 40
Planned workout(s) today: Swim, 500 yd Z1, 5 x (100 yd Z3/15″ rest) 500 yd Z2, 500 yd Z1
If you’ve ever had one of those days where you know the best course of action would have been to stay in bed, that has been my day.
Pretty much across everything really. Everything from being held responsible for a parking ticket because someone from the business across the street parked at our building illegally (I control none of this, I just happened to be the first person the guy encountered looking for someone to rant at) to my taxes e-filing being rejected because my son claimed himself as an exemption when he is still a dependant, to getting caught outside in a huge thunderstorm when it rolled in.
There’s some other stuff too, but now I feel whiney so I’ll stop and just acknowledge the truth. It’s just one of those days.
Of course, as miserable as it is right now, the little girl has no sympathy. Here she is wanting to play Jolly Ball. Rain, Snow, Sleet, negative temperatures, no sympathy at all. It will be no different today. Jolly Ball is the red ball on a rope you see in the picture next to her. I don’t know why, but this thing is absolutely the greatest thing in the world for her. She loves to chase it, to haul it, to fetch it, and when nobody is playing with her to grab the end of the rope in her mouth and twirl like a girl training for the olympic hammer throw. And she is absolutely relentless about getting me out there to toss it for her.
It would be annoying if she wasn’t so cute.
Now on the fitness and training front I had a swim planned for today, and it was my only workout, a rarity for a Friday. Of course, lightning storms will last past when the pool hours are, and they won’t open the pool until there is no lightning “in the area”. So plan B = swim bands. I had planned to do those Sunday, but apparently God and the weather had other ideas. Ah well. Gotta roll with it!
Meanwhile, I hope all of you are having really awesome Fridays to make up for it all. Cheers!
