You don't want to play with this fire if all you can muster is a "maybe" on a t shirt. This team isn't looking for welfare mentality athletes. They don't want "I play when I want to" moss mucking up their cogs. This team is about representing. It's about living under a microscope for a year. It is virtual reality t.v., Ironman style. It's about being willing to fight to be more, and being willing to train hard. It's about giving to the team everything you've got. and more.
Dang if it's not all worth it in the end.
It's well worth the ride, I'd just say make sure you've counted the price of admission before jumping into the ring.
Ok, lecture over-and I'm not even part of the selection committee.
A long overdue training note:
Biked 65 hilly miles Sunday at 17.9 avs (oh 18 why do you torment me so?!)
Swam 4000 yards weds (first time ever at this distance-just had to know I could) 1 hour 17 mins
and some other less consequential running and biking.
3 hour ride today, 2 hour run Sat, Sunday rest-of course
Happy training all
