    Er, pay for a fucking coach!!!!!

    I liked your contribution ditchy but I am sure you were saying the above image
  • Morning.

    I'm a bit grumpy today as I wanted to swim this morning but shoulder is still a bit twingy. image

    I agree with what you're saying about the mentor thread AJ, but I have to remind myself I was a *little* high maintenance leading up to my first Ironman, so I'm keeping my mouth shut!

    Having a coach is well worth it IMHO!

  • morning all

    I think the problem is the thread appears to be people just listing their availability as a mentor or mentees detailing what they want.  What we don't see (because we can't) is what contact is being made by PM between parties.

    I think Bassy's last post is really clear and concise tho and hits the nail on the head. 

  • Oh.....and morning all, too!
  • morning all

    I am dressed and fed and watered so ready to be off for my run soon...............in the rain...........

    have a fun day allimage

  • Yeah Shmunkee I do know what you mean, and I hope it works well. I am just unable to cope with level of neediness of some people.

    Just me image I would be alright if someone asked me a question but if they wanted me to tell them what to do it wouldn't work at all.
  • Partly because I rarely have any idea what I am doing I suppose....
  • I have a luvverly Mentor, altho after reading the comments on the thread, he does appear to be more of a coach to meimage.  He is keen to see my training plans and there is regular contact on how I am doing, but that may be more to do with the fact that we seem to have become mates (and not in THAT sense) rather than mentor/coach and mentee.  
  • If anyone had cared to read that article in TW .. you know, the one with me in it

    Mentor/Mentee thing can be whatever you want, as long as it is agreed by both parties ... you need the expectations of both set in the beginning
    There may be someone who wants plans and there may be someone who likes lookig and tweaking plans in which case they are a good match  image

    That said, its way to feckin early to be looking



  • My mentor will do til I can fnid a better one   image
  • "If anyone had cared to read that article in TW .. you know, the one with me in it"

    **cough**

    if one of my mentees wants plans they can go get a coach - if they want support and advice and some abuse (although that never worked with BtS) then I'm their man

    morning all - rain has put a mocker on training plans today so we'll do a TT ride tonight instead if it's dry
  • Thats kind of what I mean FB, set the expectations from the off and then no one is disappointed when they are told to feck off when they start sending in training plans !
  • (((Hayley)))

    I had a mentor but then I just organically gained two more.

  • You and your feet Dear, FFS
  • feck me haile - not again eh? bummer
