Friday Funny 81: How to Get Your Lost Camera Returned

>> Friday, March 19, 2010

This guy has TOTALLY figured this out. He left this series of photos on his camera in case he lost it. So smart. And so funny. I love his facial expressions. I think we'd be friends if we ever met.

In my last post, I asked for some help with my swim kick. Many of you gave me some great thoughts / tips. So check out the comments in my last post for some good ideas, or even leave your own ideas / drills / thoughts.

I tweeted SwimMD regarding my predicament, and he sent me 3 videos that give pointers on kicking: the first is on flutter kick basics, the second is a 6-kick switch drill, and the third is about 10-kick flutter variations. I learned a LOT in the first video. Check them out. Thanks SwimMD!!

Happy Friday!!

p.s. Just a brief recap of some of my better Examiner articles recently:

- Spring time: time to welcome back the "fair weather runners"
- The "Seven Deadly Sins" of triathlon

- Weight routine to add power to your swim
- VO2 max treadmill workout

- Early season duathlon and triathlon schedule for MN

- The science behind compression gear
- Lance Armstrong and Ironman triathlete Chris Lieto race in the first ever "Twitter Time Trial"
- Sneak peak a Cervelo's super light "Project California"
- Getting your wetsuit ready for tri season
- Macca's thoughts on Lance Armstrong's chances at winning in Kona

Just a thought, my last half IM swim split at Pigman last year was 29:33 - I have never ever been a good kicker and still only use my feet to balance my body. Perhaps concentrating on developing a strong kick to the detriment of developing your shoulders etc for a super strong pull is not the best idea for you. Just a thought.

That is really funny.

Is he married, and does he live in MN?

Just great. He pegged every facial expression and his comments were a dead match!

My friend said she loved my sneaky laugh and had to come read the post for herself.

Thanks for making Fridays great in one more way.
