22 hours

i am in ms gettting ready. factually i have benn chasing kids and my dog around my parents house, and finally it is calming down a little. i was here yesterday for an interview and then back to BR. i woke up today and have been going ever since. someone asked me today, “Shouldn’t you be sleeping?” all i could do was laugh. i am glad i didn’t have to workout this week much as i have had zero time to do so. anyway whah whah whah. no complaining.
my shoulders will hurt. i have been coming to realize this more by the day. it is all part of it. i tweaked something in both on my last long swim and through the power of celebrex i have been pain free, but as i have told shelly, it is just beneath the surface, 1000, 10000, 18000 m in. again, no complaining.
it is a night of some irony as there is zero wind tonight, flat and an almost full moon. tomorrow nights forecast when we push off is 15 mph winds out of the south east. luckily we are going east so i should gain some benefit from this. during the night they will switch and i will get some dead downwind swimming which will be awesome. i am going to want to hammer at this point but know better. no hammering this swim. it is a patience, slow game. this is not my style. i am a 90 to nothing type of racer. though this is not technically a “race”. it feels like it. same aprehensive feelings, check, double check, got my goggles, looking for my race belt and remember this is not a tri. finish it finish it finish it. slow down slow down slow down.
