Did I miss a thread?

There doesn't seem to have been one about Kona or the Pro racing this year or is that done somewhere else or just not the done thing ?

Coming from other sports there's always been big threads discussing the big races after they've happened. But perhaps that doesn't happen with Tri as it's more about racing yourself than racing others?

I was puzzling so thought I'd ask. Sorry if I've missed it.

there has been talk about Kona but it's been pretty disemminated over this place, twitter and facebook.  threads on here tend to be about events that we are doing.

Rosey raced at Kona - he was followed mainly on Twitter and Facebook

Yep I picked up on Rosey and found his reports and updates , even heard him on IM Talk!

I just thought there might have been a discussion on the race in general, but appears not.

race report is nearly done, I was hoping to sneak under the radar but alas it was in vain, I will have to post more self centred blog posts about me, me, me.

 

And slowtwitch ....... pah !!

I'll save it until tonight and have a beer as I read it. It takes you longer to write a report than it takes for some folks to train for an IM  - none meant of course !

cracking read. Captures the highs and lows of endurance sports well, the way you dealt with the downs and worked out the best way forward and the mental games that takes is what endurance sports are all about and seperates the "cans" from the "cant's". Well played Mr Rose.

Great report really interesting to get the perspective of your self talk and inner struggle amazing how fine the line between success and failure are and how key a positive mental attitude is and how much our ability is down to self belief and what we will accept

Fantastic

Awesome - we should space out the race reports throughout the year so we can always get our 'fix' - been inspired again now, thanks, Rose
