Trying to teach Kingsley the art of aquajoggie. It was hilarious. You think it's hard trying to teach runners how to swim kick? Try teaching swimmers how to aquajog!

"You should feel pretty good when you finish rather than beaten down," she says. FACHMIE! A 4k workout with plenty of fly ... you lie! You lie!

Actually, she was right. Dammit.

WU: 8x100 free @2:10. 4x200 IM @4:30. (No, that's not a typo).
MS1: 8x100 moderate 75 free/25 fly @2:15. (And of course I'm swimming long-course meters so that's a full 25 fly, no cheating by having a wall to push off and streamlining/dolphin kicking half the way. RATS)
MS2: 16x50 pull @1:00, alt by 4s with paddles/without
MS3: 6x100 @2:20, 75 EZ/25 sprint (this REALLY sucked by #3).
CD: 200 EZ stroke

Today was like yesterday except worse. At least it was me this time keeping my brother from killing people. He was screaming at the top of his lungs in the middle of a bank. It was awesome.

No idea how I got the workouts in. Well, it's midnight and I just finished cycling and haven't even showered yet, and I was up really early. That's how.

One of Mutti's hearing aids is in for repair--and she lost the other one. She is completely deaf without them--there goes her lifeline--and we cannot find it, nor her backups, anywhere. Vanished. I think she had a brain lapse and put them all in a "safe place."

So she was in a lathered panic all day. It was so sad to watch. We really tried.

Travel day, so started early, and lots of walking. (We actually still walk out to our airplanes on the runway here).

Total BS and major fuckitalls pretty much upon arrival. Had to do stupey father's affairs stuff all afternoon with stupey people and everything went super stupey. Blew my stack around 3pm. My brother saved me from choking people.

So happy to come home to Mutti in the evening, had a nice dinner with her, put in the ride.

Nice recovery spinnie a la Tour de Piglets.

Swim #1

Bali Ocean 10K. Conditions were rough this year (not nearly as bad as last year; almost, but it just wasn't as cold). Winner in 2:30, an Olympian, that's a relatively quite slow time (winner is usually just over 2:00). It was also the most competitive field we've had. Pretty amazing.

Hey, I did beat the guy who set the world record for ocean 10k butterfly ... respect!!! (for him). It was actually pretty faching amazing watching him ... he had his own paddler who is also a referee since the standards for open-water swimming and world records are very strict. He can tread water, but he cannot take ONE stroke that is not competition-standard butterfly. Unbelievable.

His mom is one of the famous Korean Jeju Island pearl divers. Look it up if you don't know; those ladies are unbelievable. Some have been doing it their whole lives and are in their 60s and still going.

Just a good late-night spinny to Tour de Piglets and to make sure my legs realize they still need to be awake for tomorrow. No hibernating after the long run. Well, not figuratively. I actually did take a 4-hour nap after that and really needed it!

2:1 run walk. Been sick this week, have a big race tomorrow, schedule worked out so I could only do this run in the heat of the the tropical day. So there's no such thing as doing it too slowly and there was definitely a possibility of doing too much, so this length and ratio was just right.

Less is more.
