Yesterday I wrote this to an athlete who's hit a temporary rough spot:
Last week, I hit the reboot button and took a vacation. I have been training hard and needed a break. I haven't seen any gains, I was hungry, exhausted and thinking only about triathlon. So, Dirty Spice and I hit the Big Apple. We were there to see U2 at Madison Square Garden but we hit swim/bike/run in the city that doesn't sleep.
Because in order to reboot, sometimes an IRONMAN needs a break.
