Practice Love

Thursday - March 6

Bike #1
  • 10m 30s
  • -----
  • -----

Morning nekkid wakeup. Invaluable in Kingsley's absence. Then again, Kingsley is afraid of me in the mornings. Rightly so.

Bike #2
  • 10m
  • -----
  • -----

Post-dinner spin instead of walk. I get eaten out there if it's dark and dengue's on the rampage again here in Bali (and still in Jakarta).

Run
  • 30m 03s
  • -----
  • -----

Sunset run. Such beautiful small stork-like birds but in colors of white, flamingo pink and black flying in flocks overhead.

Swim
  • 45m
  • 2000.00 meters
  • -----

There was how this swim was supposed to go, and then there was how this swim actually went. It didn't help that the pool was the consistency, temperature, and taste of bad soup. At least the water level was nearly to the edge--that is, a yard high (level is a meter). When it's low, it's a great training pool for beginners. Yeah, the chop makes your form kinda go to shit, but you gotta try harder to hold your shit together--plus, unless you keep a high elbow underwater, or if your legs sink, your appendages will be dragging on the bottom.

WU: 400 as 50 I.M. stroke/50 free
DS: 2x300 as 100 kick/100 pull/50 drill/50 swim (drills: 6/3/6 and hor'z scull)
MS: 4x150 as 100 descending stroke count but fast @2:00, 50 EZ @1:00. Started at 10/25m, 7 by last.
KS: 200 IM kick
CD: 100 EZ pull breathe 3, 100 EZ swim stroke/free

Before I left for Perth in January, I looked EVERYWHERE for my "good" training goggles. Today, I found them in my swim bag. WTF were they exactly where you would expect them to be? I don't operate like that!

Strength
  • 25m

Actually yoga, but that's exactly what I do it for (and easier visually to see the balance and addition of strength training on the graph this way).

My joints and body were CRYING out for this. I really cannot afford to let it slip, especially when I'm upping training! Must! Learn!

Sport
  • Aqua Jogging
  • 10m

That's what I do after I swim. Swapped it for a 10-min postprandial waddle. Now aquajogging is harder than an equivalent-land run, both physically and mentally. I'd say 10min solid aquajogging is still harder than 15min easy running. But not as hard as 20.

Swim cords, conversely, are RIDICULOUSLY harder than swimming. Those who do, know.

This is the pool I often train at in Bali. Note that filters blowing water into the pool will blow you both down the pool (at least current is +/- equally) but also across. Pool is less than 1m deep, no gutters. FUN!

Wednesday - March 5

Bike #1
  • 10m 02s
  • -----
  • -----

Just a nekkid cycle (okay, flipflops) when I woke up to get the blood moving. Already better than yesterday but I have to get physically going (in an easy way) to get the mind even remotely conscious.

Bike #2
  • 1h 01m 02s
  • -----
  • -----

To the piglets of one of the spring classics! And a classic rider won it. :) What a show. It was awesome. Riding about half spin, half hard today in intervals.

Run
  • 30m 05s
  • 3.50 kms
  • 08m 35s /KM
Swim
  • 05m
  • -----
  • -----

Really wanted to go for 10, but again, 5 was it.

Sport #1
  • Walking
  • 10m 12s

Post-breakfast walk. I'm walking for 10 minutes after every major meal. Why? Because it's good for you. And I saw so many beautiful butterflies, of every kind! Orange with black, lime green, yellow, white, black with iridescent green-blue ribbons, plain old brown ... just hauntingly lovely. I guess it's the season for them. Spring? End of rainy season?

Sport #2
  • Walking
  • 10m

Post-lunch walk.

In the evening now ... I would take my newly customary postprandial waddle, but that would require putting on clothes, and I'm just not that fond of clothes.

Tuesday - March 4

Bike
  • 36m 01s
  • -----
  • -----

Just a smooth spin with a few hard minutes here and there.

I've been passed out cold pretty much since returning to Bali late Sunday night. Deeply tired.

Run
  • 15m 02s
  • -----
  • -----
Swim
  • 05m
  • -----
  • -----

Swim cords. Aiming for 10 but some days, 5 is what I got.

I tried to wake myself up with the colors--no dice but maybe I got you a bit more alert? ;)

I drank 5L of water today. That's not unusual for me but I just feel like I've been quite thirsty lately so I'm tracking water.

Monday - March 3

Sunday - March 2

Sport
  • Walking
  • 15m 10s

Tearing around the all the luggage belts with a cart. I was bored and thanks to the (for once) shocking efficiency of Indonesian immigration, had gotten off the plane and to customs in UNDER 10 MINUTES. Of course, the luggage didn't come 'round 'til a half-hour later, but hey.

Saturday - March 1

Run
  • 15m 10s
  • -----
  • -----

This was a Crocs run close to midnight after Kingsley and I got home from a barbecue at a friend's house (one that I invited ourselves to, ha ha ... in fact the barbecue was for us!) and had STUFFED OUR FACES. This was not an easy run but ya gotta git 'er done.

Swim
  • 05m
  • -----
  • -----

Swim cords. At just about midnight. Oof.

Friday - February 28

Bike
  • 26m
  • -----
  • -----

Just a good leg-pumping spin at the pool gym after the swim.

Run
  • 15m 18s
  • -----
  • -----
Swim
  • 1h 25m
  • 3650.00 meters
  • -----

There were two versions of Kingsley's squad workout today. This was the "special slow" one. Somebody shoot me now. Well, I may have been in the slowest lane, but I was actually not the slowest swimmer today! (2nd slowest. I'm moving up in the swimming world). Apparently this workout was to be All About Pacing.

WU: 3x100 free @1:50, 3x100 kick @2:30, 3x100 pull @2:00
MS1: 800 free build through 400, hold pace last 400 (time was 12:xx, but I accidentally did 850, so it was 11:xx), 200 EZ
MS2: 1600 I.M. as follows (I shit you not) ... 4 rounds, one for each stroke
4x50 stroke @1:00, 200 stroke @5sec R
I had to cut the breaststroke swim short because my shin and calf were cramping.
CD: 200 free/stroke EZ
