Let me be clear...

I LOVE to run in a one piece speedo. I never said I looked good running in a one piece speedo. Mostly, I just don't give a shit if my arse is hanging out a little. It's all I need 'for the top half' so it's all good. Screw em if they stare. They're out there with their damn dogs on those effen retractable leashes that are going to hang or kill me some day, I swear.4:40 marathon split for IM - Kids, YOU can do it and never ever run more than 15-16 miles. I NEVER ran more than 2:30 as my long run in training. There was no way in holy hell I was going to get taken down by a freakin run injury. How do you NOT get injured (less the dumbass maneuver I made spraining my ankle running across the street on a sunny day) ... you run less, for me anyway. My body breaks down when I get into lots of 18+ runs. So, I didn't do them. I DID have to increase my bike mileage to compensate. I had to ensure the endurance and power were there. YOU may not be happy with the 4:40 but I might have kissed a stranger on my way through the finishers area...I was delirious. No, no, I'm certain it was Ryan. It had to be.

Swimming - I talk about it a lot right now because that's what I'm doing the most of at the moment. My pores are saturated with the smell of chlorine, my hair looks and feels like cotton candy and I itch like a damn monkey all day. Co-workers have totally busted me having my way with the corner on a wall (Glaven that's to scratch my back you sicko mofoer)....I just can't bring myself to ask them to scratch my back. They're really great and all but...


Randomness...

Don't know if I can watch the Biggest Liar show any longer. I was really irritated by the whole marathon deal. HOWEVER, they have since edited it out of any other airings or tapings of the show. I MAY forgive them and get suckered in, we'll see.

Rock of Love Bus - Stripers and porn stars all looking for love with Bret Michael's. What a man whore! I mean, he's not stupid...he might be a mimbo but he's not stupid. Why not, if you can with young ladies that more than willing and more than able...they are PROFESSIONAL.

Now we need a snap of running in the one piece so we can judge for ourselves.

As for me, it's not the smell of chlorine, its the constant sneezing. Maybe I should break down and buy nose plugs.

As for the biggest Liar, NBC can edit all they want. It doesn't change reality. 23 miles does not a marathon make.

Running in a one piece? Why not is what I say!

You don't put a lovely swim cap & total expensive gel to protect your hair? Short haired dork does here. Girl I be paying lots for my weave!

The Biggest "just another marketing tool" Loser, yep I'm with you. Un-DVR this one. The Rock of Love bus, I just can't sit through one episode. The "smelling of the socks in the locker room" did it for me.

Jen said...

I cannot stand The Biggest Liar! ICK!
Rock of Love...oh my!! Yes, MAN-WHORE...eeewwwww! The part that made me sick this season was when one of the hussy's got drunk and puked and then french kissed Bret Michaels! Can it get any worse? But, yet we watch...
sigh.
You go girl!! Run in your one piece - why the hell not?!?

Diana said...

The smell of chlorine in the pores-there's nothing better!

Chloe said...

I smelled like Chlorine my whole elementry,middle, and high school career :) welcome to the club!

Dave said...

I really enjoy reading about IM training. It has always been something on the bucket list. May seriously consider it after I run a 100 miler...but then there is that swim thing again...do you think I can learn to swim efficiently enough to do it?

Wes said...

I ran for three hours in training once, and I think I got to 16 miles. My coach said not to worry about it, and I didn't :-)

Marcy said...

LMAO "have my way with the corner on hte wall" Yeah G will totally go there!

untpawgal02 said...

Running in just your swimsuit... I've done it and don't care how many looks I get! Love that first pic... so cute and hillarious!

If they are looking at your arse then it means they are behind you!

Jo Lynn said...

Retractable leashes are BAD.
I've considered triathlons in the past and thought, "how would I ride a bike and run in a bathing suit." I think I'm over that now. I would do it.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Right, sister, right!

"That wall and I are really just good friends ... there was that ONE time, but we both agreed it was a mistake, and I've moved on. I have! I'm a total whore for the floor, now! Walls disgust me ... with their sooooooth surfaces ... their O-so-hard plaster (plaster of Paris is even better because who wouldn't get the thigh sweats for a wall with a foreign accent!) ... their seeming indifference to all my moans of pleasure ... uh, from SCRATCHING, yeah, that's all ... just scratching ..."

I believe you, sister!

If you ever visit my house, STAY AWAY FROM MY WALLS!!1!

My word verification is "amplatot" a new word that I hereby define as meaniing "Perv who gets her jollies rubbing up against anonymous walls"

Iron Missy? Amplatot Missy is more like it!

Molly said...

Is THAT why I'm so itchy all the time?!! All the swimming??!!!

Melanie said...

not sure about the Biggest Liar anymore either. :( Ugh. i so need to get into a pool again. Just so hard when you have to leave and it's -20C outside!! Soon!!

triguyjt said...

is there any daughter of a long time swimmer that has been named chlorine??? I bet there is..

joyRuN said...

I thought about doing that today. Running in my one-piece (with a shirt/shorts on top so I don't give the peeps in my gym a big ol' coronary) then jumping in the pool.

In fact, I'm pretty fucking pissed that I didn't do that, because I ended up forgetting my suit altogether. A wasted opportunity to get in the pool after my swim.

I love the thought of making up my long run mileage on the bike. Would it still count if I did it on a pussy recumbent bike, I wonder.

joyRuN said...

Uh, make that "after my run".

triguyjt said...

hi...whats the boulevard you were referring to????

Ryan said...

I have two wishes about your post.

1. I wish I could get my foot that close to my face...I am wishing for better flexibility.

2. I wish that many strippers and porn stars would further embarrass themselves on TV in competition to have sex with me.

Runner Leana said...

Hmm, so there really is no way to not smell of chlorine then? Good to know!

So apparently Dane said that he wasn't a member of the running community and didn't know the etiquette so didn't think getting a ride for three miles was that wrong. And after he crossed the finish line he went back and ran those three miles. Whatever. You don't have to know etiquette to know that is cheating.

IronMissy - it's official!
