This time it was about tri camp. Nothing toooooo exciting...but Sheldon must think I'm related to Dean Karnazes or something!<br><br>
On a saturday and a sunday he had me running back-to-back 31 milers. I was very upset. He told me if I couldn't finish I wasn't good enough to do Lake Placid.<br><br>
Then it was swim time. He made me go to some public pool that honeymooned as a movie theater. As in...the pool was sloped for theater-style seating. As in...they'd fill up the theater with water and all the sudden there were lanes over the seats. It kept mal-functioning though...the water kept on draining. I was very frustrated.<br><br>
I don't know where Sheldon was during the swim...I kept getting confused and upset and he wouldn't answer his phone! He musta taken Lucy on a hawt date or something and left me to fend for myself!

Ummmmmmmm are you <b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">SERIOUS</span></b>?<br><br>
Sometimes Tithers has trouble knowing if TriDaddy is serious or Nawt.<br><br>
He knows if he says run 31 miles tithers will do it. She might cuss and cry along the way...<br><br>
Did I mention I had a dream the night before this one that I had to run 32 miles...you told me to BANDIT the GA ING full marathon so I would have support aid along the way.

Hey...it was my dream. I have a wild imagination.<br><br>
Nothing beats my summertime IMFL dream where the swim was at Stone Mountain...we swam straight across the lake and had to run a 5k in our wetsuits back to swim lap #2. I got so mad that I drove and ended up getting DQ'd.

I told Mr. Tithers about the "nazi coach."<br><br>
He said if Sheldon keeps cancelling my workouts because of my crazy imagination and dreams that I'll NEVER be allowed to race.<br><br>
Maybe I should keep my dreams to myself <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">

It's not just the dream. I look at your times in the log and talk to you. I know when it's time for a break. Better a day off than an injury or fall into the over training abyss.<br><br>
A great athlete once said, "It's better to be 100% undertrained than 0.01% overtrained!"<br><br>
I beileve it.<br><br>

Waaaaah. I guess my times are starting to sook...<br><br>
I also enjoy giving you a hard time...only b/c you can dish it out back @ me. I can take it.<br><br>
Ummmmmmm you told me that quote before IMFL when I was way overtrained and losing sleep.<br><br>
Are you the great athlete that said that, or did you borrow it from another great athlete?

Truly...<br>
having a coach IS fun.<br><br>
I get different benes from my various "team members."<br><br>
Weights lady.... reminders about not getting fluffy and lazy while on vacay, plus good girl gossip while lifting.....plus, she's decided that an added responsibility of hers is to get me dates (a.k.a. "pimp" me out). lol She sees lots of HAWT and not so hawt dudes in her work day.<br><br>
Swim coach.... humbling experiences that are funny to boot. And, a reminder that I still have to learn to count.<br><br>
CS...... the joy of not havin to think! lol....seriously.....I'm a good direction follower. And, can be creative when I need to be....but, I don't KNOW the stuff that I need to know in order to make my own plans. It's EASY to slack when there isn't someone looking at what you do....harder to do it when you've got a "monitor."<br><br>
All these folks are also very cool about when I need to change things around for scheduling purposes...... work, church, etc. As long as the overarching plan is still set.<br><br>
Besides.....it's much for fun to have folks to "blame" for being sore, tired, bruised (I tend to fall and run into things when I'm not looking), than it is to just blame yourself. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
speaking of blame............<br><br>
CS....Lisa was sooooooooooo mean the other day. lol jk. too many abs! too many abs! She INSISTS that I do even numbers of seconds. SHEESH!! What's the big diff between 57 seconds and 60 seconds? lol <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
