Woke at 5:30am. Got up. Made coffee. Went back to bed and did some work. Got up again and made more coffee. Went back to bed and did some more work. Got up again. Put on the speedos. Decided I needed another coffee. Decided I should drink it in bed. Got back into bed. In my speedos. Trying to decide if I want to lie down more than I want to swim.
Kona Secrets book available
Kona Secrets: Lessons learned from over 50 Kona Qualifications.

That was at 7:50.
I’m still here at 9:02.
Supposed to be on the bike at 10:30.
Running out of time for the swim…it’ll be short, or non existent.
Dave just arrived for breakfast and suggested that if all I want to do was get wet I could just have a shower instead…
