What have I done?

Recently I got a little annoyed at myself for being unfit (aka fat) and not knowing how to get out of ‘it’. The rut, the slump, the low point of knowing you need to do something and having given it a go but falling off. You know the ‘it’. We all know that feeling.

I thought to myself

  • Can I get fit?
  • How do I get fit?
  • How do I lose weight?
  • What do I have to do?

My answer was simple – do something. ANYTHING!
So my first thought was swimming because I live at the beach.
Then I thought about running.

Then I knew what I wanted to do – in fact it was something I’ve wanted to do for ages.


The last time I competed in one of these was the only time and I think I was 16 or 17 years old.
I crossed the finish line and I threw up.
Yet I felt pretty awesome … eventually.

So I’ve signed up to go to the Long Course Weekend at Jervis Bay (http://www.lcwjervisbay.com/)

It’s 100 days away so time to get training.
