was fat. ... getting fitter!
was fat. ... getting fitter!
At 15st 2lb and 5'10" I woke up one morning held breath to pull my socks on, I couldn't reach that far while still breathing, and thought to myself. ....... You're too fat mate! Something had to be done. 4 years later I'm now 13st 3lb, had a broken foot, pf, shin plints, torn meniscus and more aches and pains than I thought possible but I feel great! ! I've run upto hm distance and cycled to Paris after which I needed a new challenge. Hmm I thought to myself, I'll do triathlon! And so my journey began. ........

First set of multiple transitions, wind and rain! :-(

Last night saw me undertake a transition session. This was a 5.3 mile bike loop followed by .8 mile run, did it 3 times to try and begin to get used to tired legs.......conclusion? Don't think I can get used to tired legs! Wind was blowing like mad, about 25mph and in my face for probably 75% of the ride. First ride was okay and speed was okay considering the wind. First run was as I expected sweaty! even though the legs were out for the first time this year. After that it just got harder, I now knew where they wind was going to hit me hardest! Got underway and it was now getting even more windy, then it started to rain. It was now blowing like mad, pouring with rain and I was getting cold. On top of this I was absolutely knackered! The whole experience took me 1 hour 25 minutes and as I sit here the next day writing this my legs ache! Will it all seem worth it come race day? I hope so! My only target is to not embarrass myself and definitely not come last. If it takes this much effort to be this bad then I think I'll definitely leave winning to someone else! Until next time.......
