Some Friday Fun..

Disclaimer: I have NOT trained for an Ironman. I have NOT committed to doing an Ironman (yet!). However, I think the word "Ironman" has been in every google search I've performed since the finish line Sunday. I came across this, and thought it was awesome. Enjoy!

  • You call a 5 mile run an easy day.

  • You plan vacations around where your next race will be.

  • You use the words "easy" and "long run" in the same sentence. 

  • You not only eat gels, but you know the best flavors for every brand.

  • You know what I mean by “eat gels”.

  • Your RHR is below 50 and you’re not dying.

  • You know what RHR is.

  • An easy swim is any distance less than 2000 yards. 

  • You do a Century ride for training, not charity.

  • You ride your bike to the start of a local 10k race.

  • You hear a gunshot and dive under water, not for cover.

  • You know that a “special needs bag” is for.

  • You hear someone else ran a marathon and think, “Oh, that’s cute.”

  • Speed work on the track is 4 mile repeats.

  • You have dreams about Ali’i Drive.

  • You know where that is.

  • The cashier at Costco says to you, “Didn’t you just buy that tub of peanut butter last week?”

  • Your long rides consistently take you across 10 town lines and at least one state line.

  • You put more miles on your bike than your car during peak training.

  • Your training race is just over 70 miles long.

  • You can eat 8,000 calories in a day and still lose weight.

  • You are over 30 and there is still someone in your life that you refer to as "coach".

  • Your bike cost more than your first car.

  • You have peed outdoors more times in the last year than you did in your first year of college.

  • You refer to the front hall of your house as the "transition area".

  • Happy Training!
