Light dawns on Marble Head.  I woke up merely feeling like I wanted to sleep forever instead of actually die, so even though I took that to mean I'm all better (due to the improvement from wholesale shitty to marginally shitty), and as much as it killed me, I still took today off from any significant training. I even took my bike to the piglet crackhouse (aka LBS) with the intention of dropping it off for servicing so I couldn't ride it, but unfortunately they were able to service me quickly and fully on the spot.

I didn't even test-ride my own bike; a piglet did that for me.

Pretty funny but that's actually a decent set-up for him.

Morning and afternoon were stuffed full of to-do shyte, so another reason to lie low on the physical front.

Played Yahtzee with Mutti after dinner and she trounced me as usual. A few observations: for the first time ever, she looked at the dice blankly and said, "I've forgotten all the rules." I told her I'd explain them to her as we went along, which I did. Most of them did come back to her quickly, but the interesting bit was that as I explained stuff, she started looking for patterns and noticing things that she's never paid attention to before, like what she can get bonus points for.

3 Items of Gratitude
1. A most marvelous crackhouse.
2. Feeling better.
3. Yummy food and actually wanting it.

3 Things Done Well
1. Not done SHIT physically today. :) And taking deliberate steps to refrain.
2. Got a lot of other SHIT done today and put up with a lot of SHIT without losing my SHIT.
3. Creative uses of the word SHIT.

3 Things to Work On
1. Out of gazillions of personal communications to answer, picking the 3 most important and actually returning them.
2. Taking one small step or chunk into each of the things I REALLY don't want to do.
3. If I can't even do that, praying for willingness.

Wednesday - May 29

Dog-sick day #2. Still fever and steamrolled, it feels like. Not that I've ever been steamrolled, but I'm pretty sure this is like it.

Mutti's doing better. Tina and I cut her hair tonight. So cute, like a pixie, and her whole face is lit up now that you can see it, and her prettiest silvery-blond hair is at the roots so cutting more of the darker gray away, she looks really beautiful. I'd have taken pics but ... man ... steamroll.

The nice thing is I've stopped caring about not caring about anything and not being able to will myself to. So what? The really important shit will get done, it always does, and it's fine not to be able to give a shit about anything right now AND not give a shit about that, either.

It's one of the very few amenable effects of fever.

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!"

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.

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
