Not really a first post – merely a few funny and /or motivational images for consideration!
A wise man (not Yoda) once said “Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can change form”.
The equation for triathlon would be something like:
(Action + perspiration) x Motivation = Dreams
When I think of a triathlon – it really is all just about scaling – really, all it is (without sounding cock-sure about this) – it is a bit of a swim, a bit of a cycle & a bit of a run … oh and of course, not drowning, falling & walking.
But in real terms, a triathlon, half-ironman, ironman, marathon, or whatever it is that you are trying to undertake is ultimately achievable – as long you put your mind & body to it – “success is 10 inspiration and 90 perspiration.”
- If a baby said, no, I can’t walk – would it never walk … end of story? No. The baby perseveres.
- If a bird said, no, I can’t fly – would it just not fly? No. The bird perseveres – except of course for the poor Dodo.
The same goes for Triathlon –
training / preparation
physical health / conditioning
mental health / preparation
allows you to be in the best form as possible in time for race day.
In addition to the above, there is of course time when the chips will be down or odds stacked in your favour – with a robust training programme, you will be in as best a possible position to succeed.
“Every great story on the planet happened when someone decided not to give up, but kept going no matter what.”
The last image is more of a funny but one that made me laugh!
Triathlon isn’t an easy sport – it takes dedication, perspiration & motivation.
But the satisfaction* upon competing in a triathlon at the end is high.
