It was a Pbttttth week. First my knee felt weird. I poked at it suspiciously. I bailed on the track workout I had planned and did something easier instead. Then Tuesday I didn’t get any sleep. None. It was a late night to begin with and then I just stared at the clock. “10pm I should be in bed. 12:30am I am so wound up I’m never going to sleep. 2 am, I’m going to fall asleep now. 3 am, I give up. 4 am, I can get an hour of sleep now. It’ll be like a nap. 4:40am nope, might as well make eggs for breakfast.” So Wednesday’s workout was shot. Thursday I ended up working all day. Like 8am to 9pm – with only short breaks between things. Maybe I could have squeezed some lifting in – but at this point I had thrown in the towel on the week. But Friday I redeemed myself. I. Did. My. Workout. YES!!!! I have a great record of not doing long swims on my own. I have made workouts and then talked myself out of it. “Eh, that’s a bad set. I’m bored, that’s enough.” So this time…. I designed my workout based on one I coach for the Masters Swim Practice. Then I laminated the workout. I got a special dry erase crayon. I told people I was going to do it. And I did it! I was so proud. Which is good because Saturday morning I was pinned to my bed. Sleep weighed me down so heavily it felt impossible to get up. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. I got only one solid workout in this week. The rest were kinda “Meh.” Sometimes one good one is enough. There will be others.

Kym's InstagramI am so proud 😁 of joining Will as a WFR. It was a rigorous and intense 80 hours of training in 8 days. . Before on all our trips I knew Will could take care of us, but I was always full of “What if’s” for if I had to take care of him. The WFR was entirely worthwhile to be infinitely more prepared to prevent and manage problems. . Thanks to @the_sharp_end_podcast for the inspiration and giant kick in the butt to step up my training and preparation for living an adventurous life! . . . #outdooradventures #wildernessfirstresponderPigeon is packing herself. She wants to also go to Ely for her WFR (Wilderness First Responder), but she thinks it’s Wittle Fuzzy Rager training, which she’s already fully qualified for.Coaching is more fun when adults use rubber duckies to count their bazillion 50s (laps). #mastersswimming #shecancoach #wecoach🤤 Desert last night or breakfast this morning? Silky vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of crunchy turbinado sugar on fresh fruit is just heavenly. Secret booster is just a tiny bit of salt on the cut strawberries 🍓 Thanks dad for dreaming this one up!
