Some of you may have noticed the dramatic drop off in blogging and facebooking this past week. Well that’s because yours truly (ie. Curt Wood) became a first time dad on Sunday morning at 9:19AM. Sebastian Christopher Wood was born, weighing in at 8lbs 2oz and 20″. I decided that in the spirit of the GWB&Tri Blog I should sit down and interview him so everyone could get to know him a little better.
CW: So Seb… I’m sorry, I’m being presumptuous; may I call you Seb?
SW: Seb, Big Seb, Sea Bass… it’s all good. But I still like Sebastian too.
CW: So Seb, tell me how the last 9 months have gone?
SW: I know it seems crazy, but to be honest it’s been kind of a blur.
CW: You seem to have really developed quickly, specifically in these last few months. What can you attribute that to?
SW: You know, it’s all about consistency. My diet has remained fairly ‘blan’ by most people’s standards, but you know what? It works. I’ve been doing a lot of swimming… every day as a matter of fact. And strength training… arms and legs mostly. Squats and shoulder press are my favorites.
CW: So last week was quite the week for you. Tell me about it.
SW: Yes, I take it you’ve heard about my big move on Sunday. Well… it was a bit rough. You know how small 10 centimeters is? I do… not very big. The change in environment was a shock to the system initially, but after only a week I’m getting stronger and healthier. It was really the only way to “take it to the next level” as they say.
CW: So what are you plans as the triathlon season approaches?
SW: You know, I’m still undecided. My development has been going so well, but I don’t want to rush things either. This may just be an experience building year as I train with my dad. I also had trouble finding my size wetsuit and tri-suit… so I would have to go custom.
Thanks Sebastian, it’s been a pleasure. Good luck with the upcoming season.
