The Importance of Rocky

Yup...THAT Rocky!

You know, there are days when you don't want to train, or you feel tired, or whatever.  Days where you hit your 4:00 AM alarm, groan, and roll over and go back to sleep.  On THOSE days, just before you drift back off into slumber, you need to use your last little bit of strength and hit "play" on your Rocky DVD that should be always cued up to one of the multiple training montages.

That's right!  ROCKY got up and ate six raw eggs and then ran until he puked (which takes about two steps after eating six raw eggs).

At some point, I'm going to have to make Sylvester Stallone, Rocky and Rambo all honorable CyclovaXC members (they will join Tiger Woods...and I think I made somebody else an honorable CyclovaXC member, but I can't remember who).

Still, can't you just see old Sly hammering away at the Birkie some year.  He'd probably be wearing white shorts with a red stripe and boxing gloves.  That might be a good idea for the next CyclovaXC ski suit.

Anyway, the thing to remember is that on the days that you just think you can't do it, fire up a little Rocky music and that will get you back on track.

Oh, and check out this awesome tribute to Sylvester Stallone by Skullqwake:
