Business Time

To quote 'flight of the conchords'...It's Business time! Training going well, still feeling the effects of not have a good bubble butt, but hey it's too late now because its business time.

Greyhound and Tac have been slightly fretting the swim, it has something to do with 2.4 miles with 2400 of your best friends fear thingy.

Hound dog, here's some pics to get ready with from 2005....





I even have a picture of 'Mr. I never post' Chivalry Chris getting on the bike....



One thing Tac notices about these pictures is the amount, or lack of space between swimmers. It's actually not too bad...I hope...

Tac's good friend JBones loves the 'Flight of the Conchords'. Tac's not saying this is the current state of relations with Mama, but their are some unfortunate similarities....



Tac out

"Objects through camera are closer than they appear." Try and relax as much as you can during the swim, but prepare for contact. Wishful thinking of a swim without contact might cause more stress during the race when you do get bumped/kicked/nudged?

And I know I've been a terrible blogger as of late. I'll try and craft something here soon. :/ It's been long overdue.

I ain't skeered.

OK, maybe just a little.

OK, I just wet myself.

Ha! Many LOL's in that song...

You go, TB - this whole thing ain't nothing but a...thing. Just let all those 2400 folks pull you around the course for 2 miles. You'll only really have to swim for .4 - everyone knows that.

Business Time for Tac Boy...

Ahh, yea, that’s right baby, today we’re gonna triathlon…you know how I know? Cause it’s Sunday, and Sunday’s the day we race. Wednesday is our long bike day with a 45 min run off, but Sunday morning is Triathlon. Cause everything is just right, conditions are perfect. Walt Disney World is miles away, conditions are perfect.

You get up early and say something studly like, “I’m not sure how that oatmeal’s gonna feel in about 5hrs”; I know what you’re trying to say, baby – you’re trying to say, ooh, yea, it’s Business Time. It’s Business Time.

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

That’s what you’re trying to say, you’re trying to say Let’s Get Down to Business - its business time

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

Next thing you know we’re in Transition setting up our gear, that’s all part of it, that “pre-race”. Then you go make your 4th trip to the porto-let, that’s not part of it, but it’s still very important.

Then, were in the water! You’re wearing that baggy old, black 1980’s style wetsuit that you got for free when your tri-buddy got a raise and bought a sleek grey and red Quantano-Roo – but it’s never looked better on you. Oooh, old black baggy wetsuit’s gonna get it on in the water today! You just don’t know what you’re doing to me!

You remove that wetsuit but trip over it ‘cause you didn’t zip it down all the way, but you recover with a barrel roll and slip into T1. Next thing you know you’re down to your shoes and bike helmet, and you know when your down just your bike shoes and helmet what time it is…it’s time for Business! It’s business Time!

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

You know when you’re down to just your shoes and helmet that’s why they call them Business Shoes.

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

Ooh.

Racing hard. Racing hard for two….hours. When it’s you and an Olympic you only need 2 hrs, cause your so intense! Two hours in an Olympic is better than 3 hrs in an Olympic. You say something like, “was that it?” I know what you’re trying to say, you’re trying to say, “aaaah yea, that’s it!”. Then you tell me you want some more, and I’m not surprised. But now I’m tired.

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

Racing hours are over, baby…

Refrain: It’s Business…It’s Business Time!

Funny song, dude. 34 DAYS!!!!

Tri-Dummy said...

Oh, I called you today during my 3 HOUR run. I'm tired.

Comm's said...

I wouldn't worry about crowding in the swim. You're a pretty slow swimmer.

Cindy Jo said...

The IMW swim isn't bad at all as far as IM swims go. Lots of space and people spread out pretty well midway through the first loop. Just start wide right and you'll be fine. Can't wait to cheer you on!

Every night is "business time" with the Kahuna.

Oh how I love those guys - those guys who now include Big 'Un.

Now you are making me sadder that I'm not going to be in Wisconsin with everyone :-(
