Road to Greatness
Road to Greatness
Hi my name is Drew, I started my officail road to triathlon greatness today, I used to be a national standard swimmer and now am a professional swimming coach but really have a need to satisfy the competitive animal inside me so the 1st Jan 2010 is my training day 1 (thats today as im writing this) and we'll see how far i can get. I will try to blog every day to let everybody read about my efforts... That sounds very presumptuous to think that even one person will read my blogs but I suppose thats the idea.

Day 1

Hi Guys,

I'm about to go and do my first session of the year just a little thera band work out, only because the gym is shut and I have to be up at half 4 in the morning to go to work so cant really go for a run or anything.

I was a very serious swimmer until the age of 18 which was 5 years ago after which I did little to no training just playing water polo once a week for an hour and a half. I don't want anybody shedding any tears for me or anything but I wanted to set the story straight and just let everybody know where I am up to in terms or fitness so we have a base to go from. In the last year I have suffered from tuberculosis so been pretty unwell meaning that I could do absolutely no training. I am starting from a point of being absolutely the least fit man on the planet and this blog will be a way for me to keep motivated and track my progress and of course for anybody else to do so if they wish as well. There will be a daily photo coming on so that everybody can track what happens to the human body as it becomes a trained machine rather than an absolutely untrained sedentary mass. If anybody has any comments they would like to leave or questions to ask then please do so.

Thanks

Andy
