What do you do when S*it£ hits the fan? Literally
They say in coaching terms that you never coach your family or yourself!!!
up the creek, was supported by the man upstairs as last weekend the weather landed on the Costa del Kilrush, the locals put all their efforts in putting on a great show, it’s the little things that races do that impress me, and all the athletes really appreciate it.
I blame women for most things
My poor mammy caught the vomiting bug on a recent trip to Dublin, instead of being the supporting son; I avoided her like the plague. she got her own back by passing along her gift of the gab to my sister, who cruelly passed it along to moi.
As I said I blame women for most things
I thought I was home free and ready to race on Friday when my run session went ok, a simple Fartlek of 5,4,3,2,1 off equal rest at 10km pace but Friday night the belly monsters starting doing flips and somersaults no hurling was done until Saturday morning. a day on the sofa watching the giro and catching up on Aileen’s great performance over in Spain along with a few pints of water and some drugs I was in denial and convincing myself id be ok
Denial… it’s a lovely place; you can be the hero or the villain. In general terms I like to be the hero. I pull on my tri-lycra and go and rescue a result from the dungeons of the cave of defeat. My weapons of choice are my Rocketscience wetsuit, it’s got secret little helpers that help me swim like a fish. I even got a special bike called by its initials of TT. It’s a great weapon of choice for a lot of us denial athletes….. But in the cave, that cave of defeat…. the evil truth has its own weapon called the run…. and when he really wants to he will make you do it in the hot sunshine!!
great support by the locals
There was no hiding in Kilrush, I tried to take the swim easy to save my energy only to start getting sick on the bike and not being able to finish… I got the worst thing from the evil cave a DNF tattoo after my name on a results sheet ;(
“Listen to the whispers before you hear the screams” is what I tell the GoTri Athletes all the time. I think I need to pay attention to my own whispers and rest up
I still blame women for most things, but thank you Josie for the offer of sun cream
