yesterday, swimming in water:
800 yards in the pool in 25 minutes (speedy!)
The pool was closing so thats all i could do.. but really i am planning on upping my yardage.
I did some timed 50s. I did them on the 1:20. When I was going to the pool twice a week I was consistently doing a 50 in a minute and taking a 10 sec. rest before the next interval. Now I barely make it back by 1:10
le sigh

today, running in water:
Ran with friend Kirsten. Today was one of those really shitty rainy April days. It has been raining pretty hard all day.. and while my garden will appreciate this ... the temps have not gotten high enough to make this anywhere close to pleasant for running. The rain was hard and wet and cold. None of that dainty sprinkly warm rain.. but pouring pounding running down your face icy cold rain.
But we persevered!!!
We ran from Kirsten's to the gov's house (or is it the mayor.. i can't remember). It was a bit over 4 miles at a 9:45 pace.

What I'd really like to do is bring the bike out soon... but its still cold here.. stupid wisconsin. did you know that northern wisconsin has a blizzard warning for tonight?

Meanwhile someone needs to get her ass in gear, work-wise. I think I will start on that...... tomorrow. Tonight i plan to: eat, plan out garden, Send seed wish-list out to new-gardener friend (who is an english phd student writing his dissertation on GARDEN WRITING... IT IS SO COOL I WANT HIM TO BE MY FRIEND SO BAD), and hopefully install some new ram.

And because its good to be positive sometimes....
an incomplete list of things that made me happy today:
Getting excited about new scientific ideas
Remembering why I thought graduate school would be fun
Planning my garden
Seeing Will

i love those days when you actually remember why work is fun. I read a bunch of papers over the weekend, and actually found them inspiring.

I'm glad you're writing training updates. It is nice to hear from you. I aspire to be able to run with you some day.
