Beware the Ides of March

Rate this Entry
Tonight's blog is a tired blog.

Today was my long swim day, and what a perfect day to be inside swimming for 4 hours.

It was the warmest, sunniest day we've had in Chicagoland for months. Aside from being tired, grumpy and in the final stages of Consumption, I woke up with "ladies" problems....grrrrrr. To cap it off, it was the Ides of March!!!!!!!

After much thought, I decided that the following would be a good workout:

This turned out to be way too easy, even for a consumptive, and I finished it in a personal best time.

So after much melding and mixing of my various plastic baggy clad workouts, the following was achieved:

yards swum: 13,100;
toilet breaks: 6;
coffee consumed: 20oz:
Nutrition: 3 bottles of water, 1 ensure drink (yuk), 20 oz espresso, 2 gels (lemon sublime and vanilla), 1 small block of Cadbury's milk chocolate and 4 Tim Tams.
Recovery: 2 Stella Artois and miniburgers at the pub.

and there was much rejoicing.

    Short course (yuk). Timed it so that there was a coached workout for the last hour and it worked out well. I planned to go a little longer but as soon as everyone left the coached workout I was outta there!

    That would be great!! Save room for me though, because there's a fair chance I'll be trying to get on one of the boats during the swim
