Kum Ba Yah

There is only one day each week when my favorite swim coach is at masters. Wednesday lunch. It is always a killer workout and Coach Jeff expects nothing but 110% from everyone. Last week after the set some whining occurred and he said, "Would you rather sit around the deck and sing Kum Ba Yah?" I then envisioned the start of a race where we would sing Kum Ba Yah and sweetly enter the water, popping our heads up to say "sorry about that mate" anytime we bumped into someone. It made me laugh.

I got to test ride my new bike yesterday. It felt fast. And fun. And smoooooooooth! A bit of tweaking is still taking place, so I have not brought it home yet.

On the garden front - the broccoli and swiss chart is already popping up through the dirt. Whaddaya know, I have a busy weekend and those little seeds come right up!

It is thundering here right now. I know this seems very normal for those of you in the midwest, or probably just about anywhere, but California not only gets hardly any rain, but rarely thunder storms. I kind of hope it subsides just from 12-1 so I can go sing Kum Ba Yah, errrr I mean get my butt kicked in lane 3 of the pool.

We haven't been getting much thunder up here lately - it is VERY dry, California dry. I am only half complaining because I can ride my bike everywhere. And a little rain shouldn't keep you out of the pool - lightening maybe - rain - never. Go get wet!

Hahaha.. the Veggies are on their way!! I want to see the new ride!

We had a HUGE thunder storm with absolutely POUNDING rain last night at like 2a.m. What is going on?!?!?!

Well - as I was walking from the elevator to our condo, I heard thunder yet again... And this was post swim. :) So it is STILL out there. But yeah, I agree - nothing like our counterparts in other parts of the country.

Nice work in the pool today - you did a fantastic job on those 400s - they are NOT easy. Especially when you've got someone leading who 1) has no consideration for the others in his lane and 2) belongs about 2 lanes over in a faster lane. Good job for not clobbering him after the swim.

HOORAY for the bike - I'm SO EXCITED for you!!!! You have earned it, my friend! Can't wait to see you on it after you get the fit dialed in! WOO HOO!!!!!

I got hailed on a little while ago! Then all the stop lights in Clairemont went out. California cracks me up. A little bad weather and everything falls apart!

We totally lucked out this morning...rain, big clouds on the drive to our start point...then sunshine the whole ride! Fabulous!

Whoohoo - gotta love a good coach who gets you...giggling :) But it keeps you going!

It rained in Florida as well...and I wanted nothing but to leave the office and get on the couch!

Can't wait to see the bike!

Perfectly sunny and 80 degrees. Too hot for the PNWer, but I'm just not going to complain!

I am imagining you guys singing Kum-ba-yah and am loving it :))
