What do you in the couple of weeks before a race?  Taper?  Test out
nutritional intake and timing?

If this is your first race, your mind is likely racing, pardon the pun.  If
not your first race, your over your first time jitters and just want to have
a better race, faster time, or move up in distance.

Unless it's the first race of the season, the answer is simple.
You're racing the last few weeks before a race.  You race almost every
weekend, so what else would you be doing?

Oh, wait... you cross-posted your question about triathloning on the
bicycle racing forum.  Damn, that changes everything.  I suppose you
could taper, or perhaps you can rehearse your transition technique, or
whatever.  Who cares?

They might be annoying roadies on a group ride some where. I care
about that.

Since it's a given that they'll be annoying somebody somewhere, I don't
understand your point.

Scott and I don't need to have a point when we talk. The conversation
will keep on rolling along, no problem at all.

Dumbass: like you don't think triathletes dope? That last couple of
weeks is enough time for the final cycle, no prob.

These days, I'm betting they don't dare anything other than autologous
reinfusion, but until the UTI* creates a bio-passport program, it should
be a-ok.

*Not a typo, just a new, childish way to mock triathlism.

Damn! I was trying to be annoying. Maybe I should take up triathlism?

I think you'd be good at it. Relatively speaking.

I protein-load with SPAM in a can.

I also think it's funny that this dude repeatedly spams
these newsgroups for his crappy blog and yet his tender
sensibilities force him to sign with the email address

Bret,

It's not just you and I, almost all posters on RBR fail to have a
point.  We're in good company.

Ooops, before anyone casts any dispersions, I meant "you and me".

Not meaning to be contradictory, but this is an unassailable point:

That doesn't necessarily lead to this conclusion:

Quote:
>We're in good company.

Not that I have a point, it's just a thing I noticed.

Too damn funny.  I make an inside joke about the misuse of the word
dispersions vs aspersions (see the Creed thread) and some frikkin'
grammar nutter emails me directly with a correction to my post.

It'd be funnier if you'd take out rec.sport.swimming from your
cross-posting. None of us cares what you post....

Maybe you should take up your beef with the bonehead who posted the
initial message, cross-posting about triathloning on various boards
for the three individual events, as if any of us gives a shit about
his post.

On a related note, why'd you cross post YOUR message?
