"What's with all you muppets in the lap pool? Oh sure lady throw your 5 year old child into the fast lane, that'll teach her to swim better. Dude you've been adjusting your goggles for 6 laps now, either man up and swim without them or GTFO of the way. KEEP TO THE LEFT YOU NUMPTY!. Wow you must be a pro-triathlete with your hand paddles and flippers, doesn't give you the right to slap me on the back of the feet when trying to overtake me in the slow lane. SWIM OR GTFO of the pool! The aquarobics pool is over there!"

In case you can't tell, I had a shitty swimming session yesterday.

Hey, good for you, you stupid fat fucking cow, you got your stupid fat ass up on the trampoline to jog for half an hour.  Gee, maybe your hips wouldn't be so stiff if you did this more often, or went walking, you stupid fat fuck.  You look disgusting.  You are disgusting.  You stupid fat fucking cow.

No, you are supposed to think happy thoughts.

Mine for today:  Why does the hot blond chick with the amazing triceps keep smiling at me?  Is it my shirt with the toast spreading jam on itself, am I really that cute when I'm this sweaty, or is my form really that bad?

Today playing touch football:

"Ouch, fingers aren't supposed to bend that way. Ohh. Not sure what's more embarrassing - angle of finger or the fact that it's tangled in the singlet top being worn by a young lady on the other team."

Dear gross, horrible spiders who are everywhere again now that it's late spring: please wait to fall from your tree for another quarter of a second so I can run by without you landing on me.  You are gross and I don't like you and you'll definitely die.

Me, yesterday, doing dumbbell shrugs for the first time:  WTF...these don't feel like they're doing shit.  What a worthless exercise.

Me, today, just hanging out:  OH GOD KILL ME NOW THE PAIN.

I never feel like shrugs are doing anything, I use upright rows and gorilla dumbell pulls

I do the upright row and about 12 other shoulder exercises, but there are clearly working something not covered in the others.  I get DOMs pretty easily, apparently.

Anything I'd tweet from a gym would be, and has been; "I'm surrounded by bastards" and "Idiots".

And the last time I tried texting from my (moving) bike I crashed into a (parked) car. And the time before that I almost ran down another cyclist on a footpath bridge. Now I will never take out my phone or gadget until I've come to a complete stop in a safe location. No exceptions ever. I've even taken to swatting people who drive text.

I have to hit the elliptical religiously twice a day. 45 minutes each time. I usually watch 30 Rock or Community or the previous day's Colbert and Daily Show. Works out just dandy.

Why is it that a 10 minute mile feels like it goes by so quickly and a 5:40/mile feels like it takes 3 hours? Is it time dilation?

Why excel at one sport when you can be mediocre at three?
