Practice Love

Tuesday - May 28

Sick as an old arthritic daaaawg day. Some cat wielding battery acid seems to have macerated the back of my throat and fever. Long morning at a new dentist with Mutti (that's always a trial, for both of us, and she wound up having a root canal treatment) and completely passed out, like across the bed, in my clothes, the rest of the day.

Had some notion of getting something else, anything done ... simply not possible. I am crawling.

So while Mutti was having her root canal today and Kristin stayed by her side, I wandered off in search of some kind of nourishment that would be amenable to a macerated throat.

Early morning so the only thing open in the adjoining mall was a Burger King. Hot salty grease; why not?

Sweetest little piglets, I was the first customer, so they upsized me for free and threw in an extra order of onion rings and doubled the tomato/lettuce/onion on the burger (veggies ... right?). I think if I'd stood there smiling and fluttering at them long enough they would have just given me the whole thing free ...

So I take a look at their name tags to thank them by name, and ... I have never seen THAT name before, so I politely asked, "How do you pronounce that?" Have a look ... yup, exactly like that. Gives a whole new meaning ... "Fachmie, it's Whopper Time!"

Swim Cords. Rest Day. Sorely Needed. Don't need soreness.

Made a new friend. She took me home for tea and cakes. She doesn't understand that I'm like a puppy. You can be sure I'll be at her door again ;)

Wee transition run. After the oof bike, this was surprisingly springy, light, and steady.

I feel like I should write something creative, inspirational, or funny.

I accidentally wore my sports watch to bed. It's nearly 2am and I just took it off now.

That's all I got.

Nice brisk landtrottie around the Jakarta 'hood. It was fun. :) Always lots of doggies roundabouts sunset, too.

I hate her. *whimper*

WU: 400, on the 4th and 8th 50 decrease stroke count
DS:

I can't even remember what I did anymore. I may have blocked it out of my memory because of the trauma.

Okay. I was finally able to look at the written workout ... note that lowering stroke count is for strengthening and technique efficiency work, not to actually try to swim permanently with a lower stroke count.

WU: 400, on the 4th and 8th 50 decrease stroke count
DS: 4x50 25 horizontal scull/25 finish, 25 catchup/25 finish
FINISH DRILL SUCKS (point 1 where I hate Sheila)
MS: 8x150 free @3:15 odds reduce stroke count each 50, evens strong
KS: 100 kick @3:00, 4x50 IM kick strong @1:30, 4x25 IM kick sprint (point 2 of hatred)
PS: 6x100 alt pull/swim, 75strong/25fast @2:00 (point 3 of hatred)
CD: 200 EZ

Gave it a real good go on the MTB on the trainer, biggest gear biggest ring tension up tight, kept the cadence up too. Maintenance day for all three sports but intensity is good, too. Would have dialed it back if I'd kept feeling like shit today but I was okay. Not great--okay.

The doggies dragged me around the neighbourhood. It was fun.

Dryland swim cords. Bugger all! You really should try them sometime. Misery loves company.

Critical to joint health to maintain this, also keeps me reasonably well balanced and put together otherwise in all aspects of health, you know?

I sure feel much better today than yesterday but am still dragging and fuck-all tired. Mutti still is, too, so I'll just have to drag ourselves to the vet--nice slip of the keyboard there, hah!--to the clinic to be poked prodded and bled.


Sad to be leaving the Funny Farm today. I always miss them so much. I'm sure they do the salsa with the Hobbit Maid when I'm gone, though. And when I come back--they're never angry I left, they're just ecstatic that I'm there.


3 Items of Gratitude: the Funny Farm, access to health care, the Hobbit Maid.


3 Things Done Well: really took care of overall health in all aspects today ... except ...


3 Things to Work On: Nutrition could use some work. :)

Wednesday - May 22

I don't have the heart to delete my dead friends on Facebook. I'm pretty sure they're not going to post any more, but what the hey, you never know. Some of them did stranger schitt in this life :)


I had all sorts of new and wonderful experiences on my birthday (mostly involving foodstuffs or food combinations even I'd never tried before, c'mon, it's a five-star brunch buffet, you gotta try everything). One of them was that I rode in an electric car for the very first time! It was so smooooth, it was creepy. Especially at stops ... no engine noise! Poke poke--is the car dead?! So funny.


I also had all sorts of new and wonderful workouts planned for today, but a small snafu ... I feel like shit. (At least physically and I have blazing, exit-wound, no-warning attack diarrhea. I know you REALLY wanted to know that!) So I'm resting. Yay me. It's always like this when I come back to Bali anyway--collapse in a weary sodden heap on the bed and the animals mill around making soothing noises and nap with me.


Methinks Jahe Kitty is happy I'm home.



3 Items of Gratitude: 1. The cat. 2. The dog. 3. The 2nd dog. :)


3 Things Done Well: 1. Slept. 2. Rested. 3. Slept some more.


3 Things to Work On: Keeping somewhat healthier yet long-lasting foodstuffs here for when I'm home. Like canned veggies.
