Too exhausted to vlog extensively.
Swam okay at meet today, times to be reported later when officially on web. Foreshadowing: massive heart valvular damage and/or other performance-inhbiting physical catastrophes were not validated by meet today. need to do follow up checks, however, and remain vigilant
200 mixed freestyle relay
the meet started at 12:00 with my first event at 12:15. the meet ended around 2:30 with my last event at 2:00.
i may have more words on the "need for rest between events" that seems to be required by hot house flowers who did not grow up in the acid rain and toxic fumes of Pittsburgh.
As tiring as the meet was, the Superbowl was much, much more exhausting. I am limp. I am ennervated. I am like the guy in the Victorian collection of ribald erotica, the Pearl, who is forever claiming, "I spend! I die! I am spent! I am dead!"
I am that guy.
Only football oriented.
My testosterone levels went from semi-manly, to girlish, to invertebrate, and then back to Arnold Schwarzenegger right after a horse sized hypodermic injection of clear and cream.
But enough for now.
To sum up:
I am spent.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, and those of us whose fandom nourishes their efforts, are the highest forms of life to ever exist in the Universe. If you are an atheist, it is time to reconsider your views.
There IS a higher power.
And that higher power is me. And the rest of the team.
