Stuff Sack

Your attention please.

I have discovered my motivation, ladies and gentlemen….

*Subtle string music starts*

The motivation I need to progress to the next level…

*Music builds*

The motivation to accomplish things of which I have only dreamed…

*occasional cymbal roll with those soft beater things*

To run more… To eat better… To train more purposefully … To do hill work…

*music reaching rousing crescendo …*

…to strengthen my core, my goodness even to find out what the heck a foam-roller is when it’s at home… For today ladies and gentlemen…

*comedy ‘scratch‘ sound of a record being prematurely removed from its player*

….today…I tried on my tri-suit.

My. Word.

It was like I’d gone camping, got my rucksack out of its bag, had extra stuffing sewn into the sleeping bag for added warmth, then also accidentally swapped stuff-sacks with one of Snow-White’s short male companions then tried to shove the now larger sleeping bag back into the smaller stuff-sack.

Apologies for the repeated use of the words ‘stuff’ and ‘sack’ within this post, but hopefully nobody is having breakfast.

Don’t get me wrong… It fits… Of sorts… And I will probably still wear it on Sunday. But it it not a thing of beauty.



  1. Long live Lycra and all who stretch it. That’s what it’s for.

    Good luck in your race today.

    My eyes are burning. On the plus side, the vision of the marathon runner in a mankini which I thought was permanently engraved on my eyeballs appears to have gone.

    Loved this, great post! You’re doing better than me – I haven’t even taken my tri-suit out of its packaging ๐Ÿ™‚

    (And I’m still to find out what the heck a foam roller is too…)

    I hope it went well … judging by the comments above I’m slightly relieved that the pics didn’t load up!!

    I’m putting in another vote a real tri-report post! And less repetition of the word “sack.” And yes, when it’s afternoon there, I indeed am having breakfast while I read you.
