Wednesday’s Workout: Impromptu open water swim at 8:00 am followed by a 90 minute bike ride at home on the trainer. You’d think that when I got home, I’d immediately change into my bike clothes, right? No. I had to take a quick shower to wash off the ocean water. THEN I got into my smelly bike clothes and sweated for about 90 minutes. I was thinking it was sort of silly to take a shower RIGHT BEFORE working out and that my towels are really never dry. And I came upon a thought of all the books that could be written by athletes and all they go through, and especially now for me, triathletes. Since I’m a fan of lists, here’s my list of
10 Books That Need To Be Written (and that I could probably write):
1) Triathlons Part I: Why My Towels Are Never Dry
2) Triathlons Part II: Why I Have No Spending Money and My Fridge Is Always Empty
3) Quadzilla: “No, I Don’t Lift Weights” – One Muscular Woman’s Journey
4) Are Those Biking Shorts or Are You Just Happy To See Me?
5) Relationships and DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness): “It’s not you, honey, it’s that I literally cannot move.” One Couple’s Story.
6) “I Only Need To Be Faster Than the Slowest Guy” and Other Tips for Open Water Swimming With Sharks
7) I LOVE Triathlons (except for the biking and swimming part): One Marathoner’s Struggle To Transition From Marathons to Triathlons
8) Bad Combinations: Post-race Euphoria, The Internet, and A Credit Card – An Athlete’s Guide to the First Week After A Big Race….
Special Pamphlet Included!!!! “The Night I Got Drunk and Signed Up For An Ironman”: What NOT To Do
9) Mary Lee: A Guide To Why Naming Dangerous Animals Makes Them Seem Less Harmful
10) Benefits of Open Water Swimming: You’ll Never Need Your Neti Pot Again
11) You And Your Bike Seat: Why You’ll Never Walk Normal Again
Ok, y’all, what book could YOU write???? I’ll compile a list and make another post out of it!
