Last year I posted a list of Triglets, triathlon words that don’t exist but should. Here is part two.
Aeropeel – The moon shaped area on your back that burns and peels from being in the aerobars and your shirt does not provide proper back coverage.
Chlorofilm – The coating on your teeth after swimming in a heavily chlorinated pool.
Compudamage – The flat spot on your tire from riding on the trainer.
Endorfix – The good feeling after a good workout.
Excercoma – Exhaustion that occurs after a long day of training.
Fitnofade – The irrational fear triathletes have of losing fitness. No, it doesn’t go away while you are sleeping.
Ibuse – Using ibuprofen during training and racing to mask pain instead of taking time off.
Ironhangover – The aftermath of an Ironman, from dehydration, too much sugar and too much Ironman.
Linkgroan – The noise your chain makes when it is way too dry.
Number jockey – Anyone who is obsessed with their power numbers or run paces and constantly tell you about it.
Number-resin – The leftover body marking you see on people days after the race.
Pantry-Raid – Waking up at 2am hungry after a long day of training and eating everything in sight.
Specurace – Estimating what you could have done in the race had you not blown up.
Spree– The stream when you go to the bathroom on the bike.
Squeech – The noise your running shoes make when they get wet.
Tantoo – Permanent tan lines from years of swimming.
Trainwreck – A string of good workouts followed by a very bad day.
Triflation – Any lie that makes training better than it actually was when telling friends what you did.
