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 InstagramOne Year Birthday Party for @zest_ed_athletics coming up! Saturday January 19th 6-9pm at Balance Studio. Short program at 6:30. All are welcome! We’ll have drinks and snacks along with a variety of things to see or do.When we got home from the holidays I was going to do all sorts of @zest_ed_athletics work... but instead spent 7 hours culling and organizing all our books by genre.Last weekend I made @cooksillustrated Chinese Orange Chicken because it’s one of @williamzest favorite things. It seemed simple, but it nearly destroyed me. It didn’t help that I had to debone the chicken thighs myself.Kumla day 2018. It took 8 hours to turn 57lbs of ingredients into 101 balls of Swedish potato and pork dumplings. @William Zest’s grandmother would be proud we carry on the tradition. Thanks to @annalesa for the flour fight 😜.
