Today was no different from any other day, upon awakening. Though there was a massive hunk of Ahi which I’d grilled waiting for me today, most of the basic daily routine was consistent with the most recent weeks.
i did, however, choose to visit the YMCA for the first time since prior to my tattoo appointment.
That, alone, would have kept me out of the tank for two weeks.
Later arrives a real cause for a total pause, that is to say, the unsanitary dry sauna practices of their members may ver well have given me a skin infection. Two forms of oral antibiotics caused the a small portion of my tattoo a delay in healing, as about 10CM square, of scab remained for like three weeks.
That tattoo is intact, and I will be darned if my homeboy J-Hova doesn’t have a big old smack in the spirit. I heard my man has an infection so gnarly on a freshly placed calf tattoo, that he is walking with a limp and all manner of uncomfortably f^cked. So when I complain about my arm, and the MRSA I likley contracted from the sauna, my derailment wasn’t as harsh as others.
Today, I replaced my engine upon that track and leapt in the tank with my new swim cap.
The first time to the tank in 4 weeks. Farmer’s walks and brief DB work has comprised my recent two week training ramp. I swam a length of pool 15m multiple times for function, seeking efficiency in my freestyle breathing pattern, and ultimately SPEED.
Lemme tell ya, that $#!t was right on time. I needed a training session like that. Woke up with ankle and hip pain. As i said, this day was like many others, and the bum hoof, likely from flip-flop footed farmer walks in the fields of Philly’s fine hills yesterday noon-time.
I was quite metaphorically pushed into the pool by a bad foot. IN the tank I nailed a great 20 minutes and came home to a righteous feast.
