|Does this look familiar? It's in Scotland...|
FB is good for all types of opinions isn't it? I mean you can [if you are clueless to the world] almost think that anything that is posted on FB is true.
Yikes... I wonder what happened to our world. It seemed that in the blink of an eye we lost so much. I am not talking about a Presidential election or seats in Congress. I am talking about the total degradation of our society [our country]. It has happened.
So much of what we once believed or held to be true is gone. Wiped out in what appears is seconds. Freedom of speech, something that was once sacred is gone. We have become a generation/people who believe we are entitled to something. We think that big or bigger government will solve everything. How did we get so bamboozled? But in truth, we know that it didn't happen in seconds, it happened over the last 40 or 50 years. Little by little we have been led down a path like a cow into the pen to have its ticket punched...
I watched some WWII color footage yesterday on fighting in the pacific. I wondered what those young men who sacrificed so much for us would think of this country. What have we become... It is so sad to think that we might as well not be Americans any longer...
Back on track, 75 days to go, training continues
I spent the last 9 days in Cancun at the Royal Resorts. They have a beautiful lap pool there. So I got to spend some time working on my swim stroke and feeling more confident about my swim. It worked, I got a long swim in and I really felt good after the swim. So, with that said, I have plenty of time to continue the swim odyssey.
Not much running has taken place this past week. That will start back up now that I am home. The run will improve if I ever lose weight.
The bike.... I got in a 3 hour bike ride on Saturday. It actually seemed like I got stronger on the second half of the ride. That is a good thing. That is how I want my race to go. Ease into the ride and then slowly pick up power. So that was an encouraging ride for sure.
Back to the start of this post, the world of IM and FB are colliding with all the so called experts weighing in on this race in Texas actually taking place. Some are confident it will take place, others are laughing at the idea of it actually happening. I guess the only thing that matters to me is getting a hotel room or not. At this point, no hotel room will be booked. I have little hope that this race will actually take place. Arizona in November is more realistic, but who is to say....
Oh well, time to get to it, have a great week
Peace, love and chicken grease
