So after much deliberation I have decided to start my Ironman blog.
My primary concern was a serious case of ‘who cares?’. I didn’t want to become the equivalent of the guy who posts pictures of their food on facebook, or their baby, or their latest run stats (ok I might have been guilty of that in the past).
I have also seen the glazed look I get from my ‘normal’ friends when I start talking about T1, negative splits and cadence.
BUT I also know that when I was training for the Canberra Half Ironman that I saw things I wouldn’t have seen, met people outside of the 18-30 eastern suburbs bubble I usually exist in and picked up a few good life habits along the way.
So the aim of this blog is to give friends and family a snapshot of what it is like preparing for an Ironman. I will save the ‘tri-geek’ chat for coffee with my tri friends, and deliver a ‘normal’ person friendly version for the rest of you.
