Day two of the new year and I'm feeling great, yet a bit ornery.
We started out the year with some cold weather here in CT and I amazed by the amount of athletes who told me they couldn't get in a run because their gym was closed so they had no treadmill to use!? Unless you live way up in Canada somewhere or you live where Straz does where it dips below -20 degrees, there's no excuse for not getting outside. Snow shouldn't stop you - in fact, snow makes a run more fun. It's bad enough that most wont ride outdoors once the weather dips below 50 degrees, but come on! We even have all this high tech training clothing now that keeps you dry, blocks wind, prevents chafing, adds compression, wipes your ass, ... People can't exercise in cotton any more, god forbid.
And don't get me started on Coffee which should be consumed often and black and not black and sweet. And light beer - no guy should drink this donkey piss. It reminds me of an early scene in Old School where Mitch gets into a cab and says to the cab driver; "excuse me but the seat belt is broken back here. what do you recommend I do?" to which the cab driver responds; "I recommend you stop being such a pussy. You're in the back seat!"
OK, toughguy rant is over.
At the beginning of each New Year, I have my athletes do my top secret Cleanse program for two weeks. We all start Sunday so I should really see some complaining soon!
Tomorrow is The Plunge at 2:30pm at Southport Beach!
