I swore I'd never have a blog!

I swore I'd never have a blog!
I swore I'd never have a blog!
It's true. I always distrusted people with blogs:
Who cares what you had for breakfast, I thought.
So what if you got a parking ticket?!
Please take your megalomania and go away!

But here I am. Breaking my own rule.
Which begs the question why, and thankfully it's very simple: Motivation.

At the end of my second year in Triathlon and as a member of Thames Turbo Triathlon Club, I've realised I'm not progressing anymore. I've hit a plateau, and the only way to get past it is more training.

Now that may sound simple enough.
Hit the gym, you say. Get up and go for a swim, you cry! If only.

Juggling a hectic and erratic work schedule, a young family and a wife with her own Karate training, has made sticking to a scheduled training plan nye impossible!

Face it. I'm going to have to suck it up and accept that the only way to get the training in that I need, is to get up before 6am... alone... in the dark and cold... in the rain, sleet and snow... while everyone else is tucked up nice and warm.

Hence the blog.
I'm hoping that by baring my training schedule and missed sessions, that I'll shame myself into motivating my carcass out of bed and into the pool.
