Into the pool this morning knowing it was going to be a good swim, even though I had to share a lane with another person. (Oh the humanity!) We swam at almost exactly the same speed so all was good.
I know I did a 500 m warm up. Then some 50 m sprints. Then some pull. Then some dolphin kick and more pull. Then a couple 100 m sprints. More pull. 100 m backstroke. Felt pretty good. Even if the kids in the next lane made me feel like a geriatric geezer. There I am about 90% for 50 m, and the kid passes me like I'm water running. Whoosh.
Today was the long expected good news at work. Yay me! But most people wouldn't understand.
Yoga was weird tonight. It felt rushed, but I don't think it was really any more so than usually. It just took me a long time to get from pose to pose. A really long time, so I always felt a bit behind. We did a neat set of stretches that I wish I'd written down. I felt very stiff and clunky doing them. Fell asleep in Savasana.
You heard it here first. Mitt Romney will win the nomination and lose the election. “I’m not concerned about the very poor” is not going to impress anyone. There are a great many very poor people in the USA right now, or who are on the verge of being so, and they will not be impressed. The middle class is feeling very poor these days, and when you think that compared to Romney nearly everyone is very poor, it makes you wonder about his priorities. And oddly enough, it's not going to impress the very wealthy. They happen to be very concerned about the poor, in a perverted sort of way. Concerned that the fraying safety nets is a hammock, or that they are spending money on things the rich don't approve of.
