Disclaimer: Reading this will send you into a spiral of cliche hating rage – which ironically is the second most cliche thing in the world after blogging about the phenomena that is the cliche.
And so without further gilding the lily and with no more ado, I give to you, this week’s cliche list:
- Signed up to my first triathlon on my birthday
- I am injured again/Body just hurts
- Work is getting in the way of training
- I blog about cliches attaching a terrible yet mildly amusing picture to depict said subject
- Just Blaze and Trap remixes
- I use a quote from “A Knights Tale” – the most cliche riddled film ever
A common resason why people sign up to their first triathlon because they are getting a little older and want to get into shape. I really enjoy endurance sport before the idea of entering a trialthlon or other event popped into my conscience. Additionally, weight loss is never been about health or performance but I have said in jest that it would allow me to wear certain clothing garments – Leather catsuit ala Justin Hawkins – with slightly less embarrassment.
Granted I did sign up to the Newmarket Triathlon on my birthday but I had always planned on sign up and they number on places with diminishing fast so I took the plunge. Ok, I signed up specially on my birthday as I thought it would be poignant moment on my long term journey. CLICHE
I always feel broken and hurting but that is fine. What is not fine is pain. The knees are finally in better shape but the hip injury of mid last year is rearing it’s ugly head once more. The normal instance of re-injuring is not rehabbing in a timely fashion and pushing to hard and the notion of “a person must be broken down before they can be built stronger or some other rubbish you hear in military based movies.
I “genuinely” believe I re-injured myself through sitting awkwardly in the car for long periods. The most likely fault is generally just throwing my body around and not stretching enough. CLICHE
Work Train Battle
Tuesday – Evening Run, Wednesday – Morning Swim, Thursday – Evening Run. A meeting on Wednesday up north causes three days lost of training as have to travel Tuesday evening and then stay in a budget hotel with no pool/gym. Then home late and have to catch up on work so late home on Thursday. In reality these are just weak excuses. CLICHE
I will still make the club swim next Monday even though it does not finish till after 2200 and I have a 2 hour drive to my hotel that night. Over compensating in planning but most likley going to bale out in practice and just miss the session. CLICHE
On a different work train battle, the type that commuters take to work, why would a person, good looking girl mind, decide to sit directly opposite me, no table between, when the train carriage is practically empty? Rhetorical questions about things i have not power over. CLICHE
Obligatory Blog Cartoon
I just can’t stop listening to Just Blaze X Baauer – Higher. Great track but just another Trap remix. CLICHE
My head just hurt now. CLICHE
