OUCH! This training stuff hurts!
This whole time I have been worried that I would be losing my training fitness. Slower on the bike; slower on the swim (as if that was possible); slower on the run.
It turns out I should have been worried about losing the fitness in my butt!
I mean…my butt is sore…
I mean…It hurts to sit down…
I have saddle sores….
OK. I mean that I seem to have lost my endurance to sit on the bike for prolonged periods of time!
By sit, I don’t just mean sit, but ride! As in ride my bike!
By prolonged, I mean more that 10 seconds.
I remember being able to ride 8+ hours without complaint. Now I ride for more than 2 minutes and I am squirming around in the saddle.
Screw losing my athletic fitness, I should have worried about becoming a tender piece of tail/Butt Buster/A Butt Bruiser/A Nice ride/A pair of nice pants
