Sunday 28 August 2010

Posted by The Coach on August 28th, 2010

To inquire after the meaning or object of one’s own existence or that of all creatures has always seemed absurd from an objective point of view. And yet everybody has certain ideals which determine the direction of his endeavors and judgments. In this sense I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves-this ethical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have seemed to me empty. The trite objects of human efforts-possessions, outward success, luxury-have always seemed to me contemptible.

My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a ‘lone traveler’ and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude-feelings which increase with the years. One becomes sharply aware, but without regret, of the limits of mutual understanding and consonance with other people. No doubt, such a person loses some of his innocence and unconcern; on the other hand, he is largely independent of the opinions, habits, and judgments of his fellows and avoids the temptation to build his inner equilibrium upon such insecure foundations. (Albert Einstein – Ideas and Opinions, 1954).

Best wishes to our athletes racing at the City to Surf, remain focused & run smart.  Have faith in your abilities & may the Gods of speed & endurance be close by your side…

    Steve, I just watched that Mikko interview and the guy is amazing. It is really driven home that you can’t neglect your basic skills even if you are Mikko Salo. I can’t wait to see him kick butt in 2011!

    Congrats to everyone who did yesterdays WOD, that looked full on. Awesome work as rxd Michelle!!

    Good luck today Pete!

    Anth 🙂

    I’m sore too & when I woke up at 3.45am (when 17yr came home!!) I knew it was not going to be a good day – was scheduled for recovery workout did not think I would be able to do this, but felt surprisingly good once I started moving.

    I also did every single mobility movement from the new CF mobility blog and that really helped too

    Sad to say though that as the day has gone on its been a slow but sure decline into more aches and sore bits – tomorrow is going to be tough

    Pete, read your race report – well done, you were looking good when I saw you 🙂

    Didnt do any endurance training and struggled towards the end but happy to get under 2 hours. Aiming for 1:45 next year.

    Well done to all the people that did Saturday’s WOD, really looking forward to giving this a crack sometime soon!
