Doing More With Less Since 1972

She skips me like a rock

She rolls me like thunder

She knocks me down like a fifth of Tennessee

She’s a pitch that I can’t hit

She’s a joke that I don’t get

She’s crazy…that’s alright with me

Swim Start Training

I was the last one in the pool last night and thought about dumping all the kickboards, pull bouys, and whatever that other junk is in the basket next to the pool into my lane and do 200-300 through it with my eyes closed.

Didn’t want to have to clean all that stuff up though.

It can’t be stressed enough:

If you are a senior or nearing retirement, your funk will not change under The Uplift Mofo Party Plan.

Best. Cover. Ever.

I wonder if Lionel Richie wrote this song about the same thing all other Faith No More songs are about.

A guy came by yesterday selling a cleaner than works wonders on just about everything. I stared at the sun for a second, hoping I could muster up a sneeze I could aim in his direction and ask, “How is it with germs?” No dice.

See You On Monday


  1. Labor Day and Memorial Day are the two best holidays. They feel like Sundays, but Chick-fil-A is open.
  2. Waffle fries can hold ketchup in the airy spaces between potato. Regular fries can’t do that.
  3. Chick-fil-A sandwiches don’t come with mayo by default, so you don’t have to worry about them soaking your bread with disgustingness accidentally.

What Is Your Swim Goal?

The plan for today’s swim was to warmup with a 300sw/100kick/100sw. Then some sprints, 4×200, and a 200 swim down. The warmup was so atrocious that I changed my plan–technique was all over the place and I felt like I was kicking to stand still on the kick part of the warmup. Instead of the 4×200 I decided to do a straight 800 and try to find an even stride. I sort of zoned out for the whole middle portion of the swim, so I guess it worked.


When I finished my 800 and was checking my HR, the lifeguard at the pool asked me, “What’s your swim goal?” He was asking because he noticed my soft kick off the side at the end of each length, and once I told him I was training for open water tris he understood why I was taking it easy on the turns. But still, it was a good question, and it gave me some things to think about and focus on during my swim down.

What are my goals, really?

  • keep my heart rate at 120-130 during the race
  • find someone to draft as much as possible
  • make it through the swim with as few strokes possible (stay on course)

Ultimately, I would like to duplicate my best in-race swim ever if possible. The only thing I really remember about that swim was getting out of the water with a huge smile on my face and thinking, “This is really going to happen!”
