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 InstagramSo apparently it’s our 8 year wedding anniversary. We both forgot until @williamzest mother reminded us. We spent the day climbing with @annalesa. Now for more drinks and dinner!Got a new gig as a youth climbing 🧗🏽♀️ coach at Vertical Endeavors! Just two days a week so I can stay focused on growing Zest Ed and challenge myself to grow as a professional coach.Just started our vacation at Will’s parents and I found a friend. Meet American Dagger Caterpillar 🐛 apparently you should not handle them because they can leave you with a bad reaction. But I didn’t know that until after making his acquaintance, we got along just fine.@williamzest and I are heartbroken. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our absolutely beloved Turtle. We just keep weeping. She was the sweetest companion anyone could ever ask for. The best nap parter, work buddy, and shoulder kitty. Her favorite treat was whole wheat goldfish crackers. If she couldn’t be on us, her favorite spot was Will’s sock bin. Eleven years was not enough for this shy, slightly quirky, sweetheart. She adored us and we loved her deeply. We are grieving.
