I decided to quit Smoking and Took up Triathlon in 2005 as a reason to stay fit, 10 years on I've spent money I've saved on lycra, bikes and pointy hats

All I want for 2015 is to be injury free.

I've been plagued with injuries for last few years all caused by a dodgy back, had injections that fixed things temporarily (up to 8 months at a time & managed to play some football & do a few races) but as the drugs wore off the sciatic pain got worse so I ended up having a back op (Partial Discectomy) in May 2014 to fix Sciatic pain that was mainly in right leg. Pain was gone pretty instantly, followed by 7 weeks off work watching the world cup :) Lots of Yoga/Pilates/Gym work followed and I can now cycle ok and can run slowly - I've tried to increase pace running and keep getting pulled calf or tight hamstring all in right leg, so sod it, slow it is. I was never fast any way, so not sure if anyone else will notice.

As I'm now starting to feel stronger, I've committed to a nice little bike ride - http://www.rideacrossbritain.com/ in Sept 2015, it's only 969 miles in 9 days, what could go wrong... I've also booked a few Tri's that will hopefully all be used as training for LEJOG.

Last week I cycled over 100 mles and ran 25k (very slowly), so must be heading in the right direction.

Now to not overdo it and get injured again!!
