I can’t tell you how cool it was to be at the OTC for the weekend. I even got asked if I was a resident athlete, alhtough maybe the guy was just being nice (instead of saying, ‘what the heck are YOU doing here?’) Met lots of cool people, too, and hopefully learned something about triathlon coachign that will help out.
A quote on each of the nutritional posters for each menu item, “Every athelete has a dream, every choice makes a difference.”
The 25mx50m pool. Michael Phelps was recently there and tried out the “world record pace” cable. It’s a cable that attaches to teh swimmer and ‘pulls’ him/her at the goal pace so the swimmer can see what it feels like, and how much faster they need to swim. Well, he got out of the pool and said, “it’s broken”. Turns out, he was just swimming faster than world record pace on that particular day.
