Fitness is relative

I believe ChuckieV touched on this subject a while back – I couldn’t find the specific post he put up, but it was a good one.

As triathletes we all like to think we’re fit, and we are.  But, we’re fit for triathlon and that’s about it.  We’re even only fit for our specific type and distance of triathlon, really.  If we were weight lifters we’d be horribly out of shape, or as in the crazy video below – we would be laughed off the playground.

If you don’t watch the whole video, at least fast forward to the 3rd minute and watch the guy hang sideways on the fence post.

One thing is for sure, if I were to run through that park in my short shorts and run singlet I would bet money on my own weak-ass demise.
