You get these people everywhere and increasingly I am seeing them in the pool more and more....who are they? they are SUCKAS!
Suckas appear anywhere and at any time.......they might be part of the regular group ride, they might be those people that you ride by and then 10km later they are still hanging on for dear life! Yep, you all know who I am talking about and to be honest we have probably all been one at least occasionally in our lives. They hang with the group the entire ride and sit just off the paceline taking in the enormous draft and cruise along enjoying the scenery. If ever they get to 2nd wheel they are the ones that pull off at exactly the same time the front swings off and hey presto they never have to do a turn.
Fortunately you don't get them too much while running, it's tougher to hang onto someones heels. But just of late they are getting into the pool as well, yeah, like a limpet they swim in the lane next to you and try with all their might to stay at the same pace. I'm sure they are getting a good workout in but when they are all kitted out with fins and paddles it makes you wonder why they don't just strap an engine on as well. It's almost comical though, how when they take all the toys off, they flail around like they are drowning. If they just concentrated on technique and drills rather than going as fast as possible for 25yards they would become better swimmers....
Small rant over, if you hadn't guessed there were a few in the pool at lunch today.........
