I'm packing the bag for yet another trip this summer. I spend so much time traveling during the season. I fly to Zagreb tomorrow. I fly Dublin-frankfurt-Zagreb. It means I will spend a lot of the day traveling. It's something I'm used too at this stage. I will probably spend most of the day watching series 5 of "House" on my laptop. I love that tv show.
It's weird to be in the last week of my 2010 season. It feels good though. I wasn't supposed to be racing in Zagreb, it was a last minute decision. I would rather go off and race than spend the next few days at the track training. I'm at the stage of the season where I just don't relish the thought of training. It's almost time to have a break so rather than being on a track in Santry I'll get my bum to a racing track in Zagreb and give it a lash.
Everything else is fairly quiet, I can't really relax and have the craic until next week. But then I will really have the craic.......countdown is on!
Years ago I found this quote and it has lived in my training diary ever since. In the last week of my 2010 season I think it's a good quote to throw up on the blog. I hope you like it as much as me...
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”
Bye for now,
