The hardest part is consistency and getting in the rhythm. If you say you are going to do that AM practice swim, do it. It is small and missing it would not really matter but it is the point of doing something saying going to do, even if no one notices.
The best part about swimming is that it soothes your carpel tunnel typing forearms. Thoughts go on in my head such as “Don’t hit me”. "You look like Michael Phelps". “Don’t kick my head”. “Look where you are going”. But best to just breathe and relax.
"Gosh this is going to be a long ride". “Why is this person so fast? She looks 90 years old, how is she beating me?” All of you experts say to go fast down the hills and slow up the hills. Yeah right. Rule book=Survive. I’m not going fast down the hills and risk a bike crash. I’m good at hills so I will go fast up the hills despite what you all say. Need to go by my gut here rather than what everyone else is saying to do, although I DO hear your advice. And thank you!
There is often a guy running beside me that is gasping for air or wheezing super loud. This wheezing guy is running right next to me. How? I keep wondering how this guy is keeping up when he looks like he is about to collapse. I think he does eventually fall but for 2-3 miles that guy was there.
Or when trying to pass someone naturally because gait is faster and the person passing immediately speeds up as if they are racing when we have 20 miles more to go. Chill dude, let me pass and if you want to race, let’s go the last mile.
This is how I feel about RedLegg’s competition. How can larger companies beat out the smaller companies when the awesome smaller companies like RedLegg notice all their customers and do all that they can to make sure that their clients have the best experience of their lives? No way big companies can do that. Reminds me of the wheezing guy and the guy that is fighting to pass on mile 5 out of 20.
