Last week I mentioned running into a friend at the pool, I’ll call him Alex here but that isn’t his real name.
I ran into Alex yesterday at the pool again and we shared a lane and we both swam 2kms which was a first for Alex. He is quicker than I am but never went close to swimming that far in one set. Sharing the lap with me forced him to slow down which he said helped. His triathlon swim is 3.8kms so 2kms is a fair way off but he is pretty darn fit to start with.
Both of us were wearing classic black speedos (his speedo brand, mine arena). All went well.
Then last night I was at the pub with some of the boys and Alex was out as well. He joined our group, his girlfriend was there and some of the other guys girlfriends/wives were out.
Everyone was having a fun night and a few drinks (I was well behaved but maybe some people were having a few more than others – hahaha).
Later in the night Alex and I were off to the side and Alex told me that he knows I’m Aussie Speedo Guy…..
I’m not out to any of my Central Coast crew and this was like a kick in the guts.
Alex must have seen the look on my face and quickly assured me that it was all OK and that it was nobody elses business and he would keep my secret. He also has read enuf of the blog to know that “It is OK Dave, you like girls too.”
That was pretty much the extent of the conversation.
Should be interesting this week but I’m pretty sure Alex won’t say anything to any of my mates about it.
Of course, if Alex wants to do some ‘other’ training then we could use his lunch hour at my place – hehehehe. Wishful thinking I’m sure.
I’m posting these pics because this guy looks similar to Alex (minus the tattoos). And I’ve only ever seen him in a classic black speedo.
