A few years ago my friend told me about his plan to write his own business book. I told him without hestitation that it will not sell simply he didn't have the expertise in starting a business. I am such a great friend huh?
He wrote it anyways. It sold a few copies to those who knew him. And that was that.
At least he knows where that went.
What surprised me was that after all these years, our friendship continued to grow. He is coming to IMUSA willingly and been to most of my races (and my photographer).
Last Fri, a sister from my fellowship was not feeling well. My schedule was to hit the pool. I put that aside and spent the afternoon in the park with her. I could always swim later (which I did).
The US Marines have a fundamental belief. They never leave another marine behind. Not even on the battlefield.
Just knowing someone willing to stick by you can have such an uplifting effect. And this is the belief I want to live by.
Whenever I speak, am I encouraging or am I not? Am I part of the problem or part of the solution?
Training wise, this week I am taking it easy. From last week's training, I could feel a deep fatigue in my quads. My left knee had a strange sensation when I was doing track workout on Wed. This is a sign that it is time to back it off.
My weekend's training, 7.5 brick (5.5 bike + 2 hr run) and a long run the day after is a bad idea. It is asking for injury.
As for job hunting, this week I had three interviews (AOL Canada, Employment agency and WSI Internet Consulting). With WSI, it was through my resume dropping. I am surprise results are coming up already. Let's keep at it and see where it will go :)
