Still Hurting

I am still recovering from my weekend of poor judgement (which is how I will refer to it from now on) and my legs are tighter than a Puerto Rican bongo drum. I actually have no idea if Puerto Ricans play bongos, or how tight they keep the skins if they do, but I'm watching the World Baseball Classic game between Puerto Rico and the US and the fans seem to fancy hand drums a lot.

I did swim a short distance at lunch today. 1000m in 15 minutes was enough for me. I was unable to go all last week on account of the Canadian National Swimming Championships taking up the pool, and just wanted to get a little swim in. This was all I could muster.

Tonight I did some more crunches, push ups, and chin ups. No squats though. I was afraid of tearing something south of the border...

On a nice note I received an unexpected email from my Uncle in Poland today, totally out of the blue! He's not my real Uncle (who seems to have disappeared down under in Australia a couple of decades ago), but as my Dad's best friend that's how we always refer to him. He told me that he's been following my blog and wished me well. Awesome! Thank you! Perhaps I will have to start writing this blog in two languages? Hmmmmm...

Hope you aren't hurting too much and hope you'll be back to normal for your race! ; )

Ha, I'm also somewhat leary of squats...although I've never heard it justified with the wording you used, lol.

How nice that your uncle has been following your blogging! Do you speak any Polish?

Sorry to hear you're still suffering. At least you were able to get in the pool!

What a nice surprise to hear from your uncle. We'll take all the support we can get!

Off course you can still be in even if you haven't had anything! That's an answer, right? ;-)

Are you mocking my poor use of the Enlish language? I don't like that though it is appropriate.

So their.

You should totally throw in some Polish now and then!
