Last month, or a year.. maybe five, I have basically done things for getting them done. More you do, more you are allowed to be happy. I see there is coming some changes. It doesn't mean I stop doing things, it means I stop doing them for getting them done. Because, believe me or not, for a long time I have been riding BMX just to get it done. I have rode to get better results. I have rode to finish my training schedule. Witch leads to better results. Too often in (Finnish) sports we conctrate to the results. We talk about having fun, but in reality no one respects that.
Performance, training for results, takes away from having fun. As well as having fun takes a part away from result orientated training. At least we are really scared of that. Finnish sports are known about slosh around in the swamps. About giving your best.. There is not many who can say they go running on swamp with smile on their faces. So how can we find the golden mean where we don't get into sinkhole of the swamp but neither roll on the tarmac rodes?
In my resent situation I'm of course going thru these questions because of my own training but as well for new baby. How to help the kid to make the grade by not being nazi mom. Maybe by examble. So I get my back yard swamp sloshing and plant couple cloudberries there at the same time ;)
On the meanwhile, my belly keeps on growing. And so does my urge to ride a BMX. Lately I have been rolling my single gear bike on the streets and my dad's fat bike in the forest. One thing I have noticed is that people who ride their bikes when it's raining seems to have smile on their face :)
