You’re so lucky you have good genetics

Does anyone else hear this from family or friends when they see your triathlon progress and get irrationally angry? I’ve lost track of how many times some version of my title has been said to me and each time I’m left annoyed and without a good response. Yeah, maybe it is good genetics, or possibly the fact that I swim, bike, and run 15 hours a week and constantly need to motivate myself.

Anyway, apologies for the rant – I feel like every time I hear something like that it belittles the time, effort, and pain you put in to training.

Has anyone else experienced something similar and handled it better?
