2/6 - 2/12

I had a pretty good week swimming, but I miss running and I need running. I am still fat, and I feel like assaulting someone because of it. Don't judge me. Don't lecture me. Somebody deserves blows.

Monday, I gently pushed a few weights. On the bench I did

16 X 50
15 X 66
12 X 96
11 X 101

I also walked 2.16 miles.

Tuesday I walked 2.89 at the kids while I was waiting on the school bus to run. At the pool, I swam

500
100
2 X 50
200
4 X 50
300
6 X 50
400
50 easy
8 X 50
end of Masters
3 x 500
total: 4,050 = 3,701 meters.

Wednesday was so pleasant with the sunshine and mid-seventies temperature that I thought it an absolute sin not to swim, not to drive to the fish farm and make the effort to avail myself of the lovely chance. I called my fish man David who told me that the sale of the farm, which I had so feared, was not to be. Praise be to God. Now these ponds will remain mine. I did a short 1.26 mile swim in my wetsuit and enjoyed myself extremely.

Thursday I was back at the kids for some walking (3.16 miles) and at DSU for swimming. Once again, I survived a lack of a warm up and swam

500
12 X 150 @ 3:00
8 X 50
end of Masters
3 X 600
total: 4,500 

I had time to stay longer, but I am still exercising some restraint.

Friday I went back. I started with 

3,600 straight in 1:00:52, then
8 X 50 @ 1:00
400 small paddles
6 X 50 @ 1:00
400
total: 5,100 SCYs = 4,661 meters.

Saturday, I walked 2.34 miles and did some gentle lifting. On the bench I pushed

20 X 65
15 X 95
12 X 100
20 X 105

For the week, I 

walked 11.02 miles,
lifted weights two times, and
swam 14,502 meters.

Now, it is time to turn up the volume. If you helped pray me through my shoulder issue, thank you and thank you Jesus. Now I need a little help with my right elbow. 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
