So after several years of generally criticising blogging I’m starting my own. The intention is to record what’s happening in my life over the next couple of years as I set about doing a little bit of travelling and a lot of training. I’m a little premature here as it’s another 139 days before I leave my job and actually take on the life of a full time athlete.
Still I have goals for the next 6 months – Ironman Switzerland this July. I’ve a pretty intensive amount of training planned right now with a number of trips to focus on it. I just have a job and a commute to deal with everyday too.
At the end of July I’ll leave my current job and after a couple of trips in Europe I’ll head to Australia for a year. I’ve got my tourist visa for the year, know where I’m heading and have a very rough outline of my plans. The objective is pretty simple, take advantage of the warm climate and the free time to focus on triathlon training and see how far I can take things. I train a lot now as it is, but if I’m not commuting for 3 hours a day and I’m not in an office from 9 till 5 (nearly) how much better can I be? Only way to find out is to go and do it.
