didn’t sleep well last night
as a result, I’m feeling quite drowsy
I’m sitting on my couch debating with myself whether
I should go to the cycling session or not.
I wonder which self is going to win.
UPDATE: I ended up going for it!3 notes | Posted Jul 17, 11 #kuwait #triathlon #training #cycling #motivation #valencia #sleep
AAAAAAAHHHY CANNOT FEEL ANY BETTER!!!!
Today is Friday, which means we went to our weekly cycling training in Doha. The weather was probably too hot and too windy for my preference, but hey, can’t stop won’t stop!
Cycling against the wind is the epic tale of aerodynamic efficiency and my determination to defeat the stiff and burning headwind. It exhausted my leg muscles and it was stressful on my back too. Still, I couldn’t stop, I didn’t stop. The return made everything worthwhile, as the wind and I finally became friends! I cycled, and the wind kept on pushing me faster and faster and I thought I heard it say, “Go, rainbow, slice the wind, paint Doha with all your beautiful colours,” and so I did :D
41km in 2hrs and I’m feeling supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Today is only one day in my life, but it prevails every single empty day I have lived before, and I plan to enjoy every minute of it!

PUSH PUSH PUSH! HIGH CADENCE! DON’T SLOW DOWN! FASTER! IF YOU STOP YOU’RE A LOSER! IF YOU SLOW DOWN YOU’RE A LOSER TOO!
That’s all he needed to say: Loser. And I knew I didn’t want to be a loser, so I kept on cycling. I kept on cycling even though my thigh and calve muscles felt like they were hot soup. I kept on cycling even though I didn’t even have enough energy to keep my head from bouncing right and left like an old metronome. I kept on cycling because I didn’t want to be called a loser.
Now that I’m off of Bananatu (my bike) and I have somewhat of a clear mind, I wonder, what is a loser, really? How can a five letter word have such powerful and strange motivational impact?
Anyway, if there is anything I learned today from training is that you should always go beyond what your logical mind claims you are capable of. You should recognise your limits, then redefine them… and if you don’t, then you’re a loser :D3 notes | Posted Jul 1, 11 #triathlon #valencia #kuwait #push #cadence #cycling #ninnar #spain #limits
