I read somewhere that the person on top of the mountain didn’t fall there. Turns out it takes a lot of hard work to be the fastest AG in Kona.

If you have a desk job it’s easy to train after a long day.

Also this is a broad and uninformed generalization.

Do I really need to say “n=1” after everything...I’ve had desk jobs and physical jobs. It’s easy to train after a day at the desk vs 14 hours on your feet, it just is.

Still a broad and uninformed generalization. “Desk job” covers a lot of ground and just because yours was easy and left you plenty of time and energy to train doesn’t mean they are all like that. Sort of like saying anyone who only sleeps 6 hours a night is dumb.

Even the same desk job feels totally different day to day. You can have a nice day with no major incidents and you can handle according to schedule. Then on the other hand you can have days where many things go wrong at the same time and you are mentally exhausted just by reacting to stuff. That's me anyway. Putting on the running shoes takes a bit more effort in such cases.

I need to learn to be as effective as her. I’m not quite sure how she manages to wake up at 4:30, get in 1.5hr bike or run then cycle to work and be at her desk by 7. All while fitting in breakfast and showering, etc. That’s impressive. Curious how long the bike commute actually is.

I think ones commute has a huge affect on training, and quality of life. If you can get your home, office, and pool in a reasonable distance from each other, everything becomes easier. As somebody who commuted 90 minutes each way 20 years ago, I now do 7 minutes on a bad day. I would never do that type of commute again. Living and training is so much easier without it. She seems to have a reasonable commute since she cycles it.

I wish I could sleep 6 hours a night! I used to sleep like the dead. Insomnia started in my mid 50s. *sigh* If only they would let me nap at work!

You could have just aired your scepticism on Herbert's original thread on the ST interview.
