Die Tage werden kürzer, das Training ist wenig umfangreich. In Ermangelung langer Läufe und Radausfahrten wo der Durchschnittstriathlet seine Angriffspläne für 2011 den Mitbewerbern kund tun kann, weicht er gezwungenermaßen auf Internetforen aus. Das Herbst/Winterloch produziert tonnenweise Datenmüll in den Foren der (Triathlon-)Welt. Zur Not kann man auch ein zwölftes Mal den vermeintlich schnellsten LRS diskutieren und sich die Köpfe zum Thema Schlauch vs. Draht einschlagen.
Aber es gibt auch noch User die wirklich schlimme Probleme haben. Da wird alles Training zur Nebensache, wie nachfolgender Post beweist ;):
I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. I've witnessed the usual signals; the phone rings, but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with 'the girls' a lot recently, although when I ask their names she always says, "just some friends...
from work, you don't know them." I always try and to stay awake to look out for her coming home, but I usually fall asleep. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. Around midnight, I decided to hide in the garage behind my road and mountain bikes so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with 'the girls'. When she got out of the car she was buttoning up her blouse, which was open, and she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on. It was at that very moment, crouching behind my bike, I noticed a slight crack in the downtube, two inches behind the headset. Is this something I can fix myself, or should I take it back to the bike shop?
