It's not really adding up

I went to a mini meet today, and comparing my times to last year, I'd hardly say things are adding up...

Last year: 50Fly 40:40
This year: 50Fly 39.88 (at least I broke 40)

Last year:25Back 22:50
This year:25Back 22:78

I swim 100IM for the first time (I think) my time was: 1:31.01

I joined K and Kylie for this 2 hour event, and we had a blast. A lot of my students were there as part of the swim team they participate in.

I need to work on starts -oh, and also training...ha!

Sexy janai yo!!

While swimming tonight a guy got in my lane (which already had another person in it) and started swimming. Not a big deal, it was a bit busy tonight, but he wasn't of the same speed at all and there were only 2 people in the lane he moved over from.

I didn't think much of it, other than I noticed he was wearing a pretty tight speedo when he walked on deck (and it didn't suit him). Well, I did think much of it when he paused under water at the end of the lane and blatantly stared at my midsection before pushing off the wall (with his head still facing me...)


He only go one chance though, then I made sure I was turned the other way when he got to the wall the next time.

I moved into the next lane as soon as possible. At one point I had stopped at the other end where he was also stopped and in front of all the swim club kids, he leaned over the lane rope and yelled "Sexy, ne! Sugoi!"

Oh brother. Give me a break.

anyway: 2200m tonight.

While listening to a CBC radio program (my new addiction) on vampires I managed 30 min of bungy cord activity.

No aerobic work today, and my shoulder is not happy about yesterday's swim...oh well.
I have a wedding to attend in a month, gotta look good in a kimono. It's my new motivation.

Another Day at the Driving Range

I bought a set of used clubs today and spent part of the afternoon swinging at golf balls in Toyama city.

Fun stuff.

p.s. you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find lefthanded clubs in this country!!!

In the Saddle once again

Went for the first ride in AGES today. Couldn't resist the sunshine and this beautiful, mild November weather that we're having here.

40km up, down and around Nyuzen, Funami and Asahi.

No bears...whew. I started up the road towards Fuami Castle, but then came across a bear warning sign...I didn't chance it.

A Wee Dip

Went for a short swim last night.

Just did my regular warm up -which I'm thinking of changing to get myself out of this funk.

800 broken RIM
400 kick

floated around for the rest of the night doing drill work and trying not to think about my shoulder.

Well. Hello there...

It's been way too long since my last post. Gomen.

I haven't been doing much, but at least I haven't been doing nothing...

I've been to the pool a couple of times...

OK, that's it.

I come home from work, thoroughly exhausted. But now I know it's not from work. It's from not working out!

Back to the basics. Back to regular cardio activities. Back to normal.

That's the goal for November.
