14: ‘Stupid Human Tricks’ and the Bars Are Back in Town!
Bars are back! Picky Bars has bars again, and all is right (or at least getting back to right) on the business side of the work, play, love triad. Like Rocky hiding out in the woods before his big fight, Lauren, Jesse, and the kids retreated to the lake for their annual family vacation. With Jesse not being in peak triathlon training mode for the first time for the trip (no Sly Stalone training montage, sorry) there was a definite reconnect with the playful side of sport, including a display of “stupid human tricks” as Lauren calls them. This leads conveniently to another batch of great listener questions:
- Toeing ‘acute injury risk’ with activities outside of your sport
- Dealing with short-term sickness during training
- The last name debate
- Encouraging (without pushing) kids’ participation in sport
