There are plenty of things I can bitch about on any given day about being self-employed. Whether it is paying quarterly estimated taxes or having to fight to get invoices out the door/paid or having to wear all the hats of this one-woman show - there are definitely less awesome parts of being the boss. While there was some work to get done today, I took advantage of the fact I can flip off my boss and take a long lunch with my friends (and surveyors). We snuck off just after noon for chips, salsa, cheese, tacos and margaritas! Just one to take the edge of a sucky, rainy day.
Went back to the office and worked on a report for a little while, but then decided to knock off at 3:45 and head to the ARC for a swim workout. I do have a sprint tri coming up in two weeks and am weak on swim training! I was in my suit and ready to swim about 4:00. But the lanes were full! And there were two guys sitting on the bench next to the wall waiting to get a lane. Doh! Even more annoying were the two guys that would swim a lap and then chat at the end of the lane for a while and then swim a bit more. I'm like "Hey screwballs! We're waiting out here!!"
But I didn't say that. Thankfully, the old man next to me was staring hate daggars at them until one guy finally gave up his spot for the old guy who then apparently bugged the other dilly dallyer to move it along. So I got in the pool and tried to keep count of my laps. Tried being the operative word. I gave up part way through when I lost track thinking of the million other things I should have gotten done today. Oops - guess my boss will be pissed. I watched the clock and I counted a few times in between and looked at my average pace. I'm sure I did at least 2000 yards in around 45-50 minutes so that is what we're going to call it for the total.
Swimming = 9600 yds = 5.5 mi
Biking = 471.5 miles
Running = 80.8
