Normally the majority of what is written by T.C. for T-nation falls under mildly guilty amusement. Don't get me wrong, he knows his audience, he writes pretty well, but I am an outlier of that audience. Occasionally however he writes something funny, well thought out, and worth reading.
His Lifter's homage to the devil's dictionary is pretty good.
Personally we did some race pieces with another local crew this morning.. we got waxed.
It happens. I am a little frustrated with some of the guys. Not because we got beat, that's out side of your control, you go as fast as you can and if the other crew is faster, you tip your had and keep working. I was/am frustrated because when it became obvious that we were going to continue to get beat, they resigned themselves and limped through the last few pieces. It's ok to be slow, it's not ok to give up. Beyond that, I feel I rowed pretty well, and some mornings you're just happy to be out there. The water was flat, the sun was out, and that was good enough.
This afternoon.. I get a haircut!
No big plans this weekend, which is just the way I like it.
