Got woken up early by jackhammers in the neighborhood. Stuck in a massive traffic jam on the way to the pool due to a lane closure. Blah. I was just uninspired, and got out of the pool early. Hopefully, I'll be ready to rock 'n roll tomorrow. This is first "phone it in" workout I recall doing in months. I'm not driving up to Philly tonight; I need a travel break. I could also use a break from Teen Fort.

    As much solo work as you do, I'm amazed you don't have more "blah" moments. I need a break from pre-teen ratlette #1.

    During the entire workout today, I was really hoping that Speedo would be there tomorrow.

    Teen Fort has been unbelievably trying all year long. I was so sad when Fort Son left for college ... but I may be cheering next year. And praying that Lil Fort won't be such a difficult teen.

    That would be fantastic! There was no way a 100 for time was happening today.

    Yes, and if there is an opportunity to kick your azz without even using her arms, she is all the sudden motivated...

    That remains to be seen ... This buckle right down for more serious training right after Greensboro to prep for early long course does not agree with me at all. But the odds are better tomorrow that I'll be motivated. I may even use my arms. Or not. And if Speedo throws down a 50 high, I will likely get my azz kicked.

    Nah, that's not enough distance for me to get you. I just went :47 the other day. Less than AFAP but still ... you'd probably go 42-43? Maybe I'll try another tomorrow. But I can't stay under for 100 yards!

    Just go kick someone's azz in Canada and then you'll feel better after your stinging 225 vs 200 defeat.
