Bragging about your poopy pants

October 19, 2012 by crazymadliving

I saw this hilarious YouTube video entitled “How To Become A Triathlete” in which the narrator provides helpful tips and handy hints on the lesser known aspects of triathlon training. Watch it – it’s a hoot!

Among the things he said was that, to become a true triathlete you’d have to openly discuss your hemorrhoids and pooping in your pants, so it was quite ironic that I found myself with a nasty tummy bug last night, which not only ruined a good night’s sleep but also pulled the plug my swimming plans for this morning.

Mister Tummy Bug paid an unexpected visit and decided to stay.

At first I thought it was just nerves ahead of the canal swim, but I also knew that I had enough Biral in me to bring peace and tranquility to a small war-torn nation, so it was definitely not the case.

Now it appears that some of my nearest and dearest were also struck down by a crappy bug this week and I was just next in line to get it. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

Anyhoo, so at 4h30 this morning I was torn: Do I call the whole swimming thing off and crawl back to bed OR do I put on my big girl panties and my wetsuit and swim? By 5am I realised that this wasn’t going to work out and I was definitely NOT ready to pull a Chrissie Wellington and just let it all go in my wetsuit. GROSS!

So here I am. Popping valoids, drinking rehydrat, hoping that this thing will go away before Sunday’s bike race, and oversharing…

Which, according to the guy in the video, brings me one step closer to becoming a triathlete. w00t w00t.

Happy #redsockfriday! #shoOops When I work at the @capetownfunnyfestival I'm usually hidden away in some hidey hole, so the audience reaction feels different. Last night I was in the audience, and the experience was absolutely incredible. Hearing the gasps, the uncontrollable giggles, and spontaneous laughter... Seeing the delight in the audience's eyes and how they jump to their feet for a standing ovation... there is magic in the air at the @baxtertheatre, and you'll be a fool to miss this show.

#JiveCTFunnyFestival #comedy #capetown #lovecapetown #funny #laughter #magic He did it again. Fresh from the oven... thanks @brightboykris!

#bread #homebaked #baking #food You don't do #Cubs #Scouts for the fame and glory. But I love this pack of mine, even when dealing with them is like hearding cats ❤

And then their parents surprise you with a ginormous bag of your favourite chocolate. This #Akela has sweaty eyes right now. @justinbieberkittie doesn't care what or who he sits on. As long as it is soft.

#instapet #catsofinstagram #family #dominate Oh my gosh, I'm SO excited. Just received my mini photographic studio-in-a-box and am so impressed.
#lightbox #photo #excited #play Thinking back to my cross-country trip with @theunogwaja. Some of my favourite humans are in this pic. I miss them so. 
Also... check our awesome @newbalanceza kit... comfort for daaaayyyyyysssss (I still find myself wearing something from the range on the daily)
#bettertogether #unogwaja2017 #makeadifference Yup, I can taste that Cheddamelt and double thick milkshake already, @_official_spur_sa 
But at the same time I can't help but wonder how real this is 😶 It's so handy to have a #baker #boy in the house. Finally... an assistant in the kitchen, and @brightboykris is becoming an ace at decorating too. #homebaked #cupcakes
