All workouts completed and in the books - three runs, three swims and three runs. I'm happy with the outcome...except for the fact that I fell apart on Tuesday for speed work. The plan: 1 mile warm up, 3 x 1 mile repeats, 1 x 2 mile repeat and 1 mile cool down. I made it through until about 2/3's way through the last bit, 1 x 2 mile repeat. Holy crap, totally fell apart, the wheels came off and I was cooked. The 1 mile cool down turned into a .5 mile walk to the car. Eh, for the second speed session of this season, I'll live with that! Otherwise, the workouts were uneventful (sorry to say). I'm still looking for the elusive wild dingo but have not found him yet. Oh, except for the fact that I killed a squirrel today while driving to the lake. I felt terrible but the little s.o.b just stopped in the middle and looked at me - I wasn't going for the ditch or oncoming car when I felt the thump, thump and looked in the rear view. Blech, I felt bad, couldn't even make some good squirrel gravy out of the little sucker.
McShotty 2009 - this would be our annual scavenger hunt and, ahem, drum roll, yes, I was part of the WINNING TEAM. The hunt always takes place during the Country Music Festival in Nashville...so much good stuff. Drunk foreign folks (and by foreign, I mean from Nebraska and WisCONsin)! Every team is given a book with four major landmarks, navigate, take pictures, plus four major bars or stops for a McShotty (shots at every bar for every team member to obtain points) and then the random hits - a guy standing on his head, a mullet, a Billy Ray Cyrus t-shirt, stuff like that.
I mean, this is like the Big Johnson t-shirts of the 80's...this will NOT get the girl. Guys, take note.
This poor little street performer had never seen a $2 bill before. He was thrilled with his good fortune and so were we (we needed a picture of a $2).
...and this was probably two seconds later. I think he crushed his junk. He did walk with a limp the rest of the nite.
