Ironman had a great video today as part of their Ali’i drive series. Made me think of all the things that just few years ago thought was just crazy. I thought doing a marathon was a crazy idea and now I will be doing a full Ironman in few weeks. So this video made me think of the craziest things that I have done since I fell in love with triathlons:
- Wearing speedos. never thought I would be doing this. But since I started cycling, my thighs just go bigger and jammers are not very comfortable. So I gave the speedo a try and love it. However, if they start making more comfortable jammers (Speedo,TYR should take few tips from cycling shorts) I will defenitly go back to jammers.
- Shaving legs. I started shaving last year and was part of my pre-race ritual.
- Riding for 5-6 hours then running for an hour… since when this is normal?
- Going to bed right after putting my kids to bed so I can get up at 5am for a 2hours workout.
“we have an hour long race at a world class level and we call that a sprint… for an hour…um… most other sports, sprinting is 10 seconds”
