It's usually fine as long as you don't p*ss on your shoes.

I've qualified for two Kona IM. I train hard and try to stop drinking for each prep. However, I find that sometimes that it all gets a bit too much and a good slug of booze is all you need to feel relatively normal again. A little bit won't hurt and will make you feel heaps better - which makes training much more fun and easier. I think alcohol and training can be a problem when you drink without properly rehydrating or if it affects your sleep (low dose alcohol is a neuro -stimulant, high dose alcohol is a depressant - which is why when you drink a lot you 'crash out' but later on wake during the night as it is gradually metabolised and the concentration in your blood graudally decreases)

I try not to drink beer while on the bike as it's too fizzy and makes me belch.  Swimming and running are fine.

Kanga at the bar in Nice was very funny indeed. All a bit hazy but I thiink it was something to do with cricket, That or Doozer's rear hanger. Dunno.
